52 WEEKS OF THANKFULNESS – WEEK 45

52weekw

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD.

I invite you to come and join me on this pilgrimage to change the world through thankfulness.  Perhaps if enough of us join together we can change the negative climate that exists and is overtaking our planet. Together we can move our fellow citizens of to a better, higher and finer place.

It is the simple things in my life that sometimes get overlooked when reviewing the week and deciding what I am going to write about.  One of the simplest things, and yet at the same time, one of the most important things to be thankful for is good health.

I am at an age where I am constantly receiving bad news about a friend’s health problems.  Fortunately for me I don’t have a health issue that would be considered life threatening.  I went to my grandson’s soccer game Saturday morning.  It was a beautiful spring morning and it occurred to me how thankful I should be to be able to attend his game.  I give thanks this week for the simple ability to get in the car and drive to the field.  The strength to walk to the field he was playing on and to be able to stand and watch the game. 

“You’re in pretty good shape for the shape you are in.”  Dr. Seuss

I hope that by writing these posts that we will move together beyond thankfulness into appreciation. Because appreciation for the moments and things for which we give thanks requires us to be mindful of our lives.

At the end of the post you will find a link up frog and I hope you will join me on this venture and once a week write a post and link up to others and share what you are thankful for this week.

PLEASE ADD YOUR POST AND TOGETHER WE WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. It’s easy to sometimes take the things we have for granted, like our health. Thank you for the reminder to be grateful! My grandson no longer plays soccer (he now has a full time job!), but I attended as much as I could. And I’m sure I could still stand and watch a game to this day—with a heart full of gratitude!

  2. I just posted a link to my latest post on your Thankfulness page and wanted to thank *you* Bernadette for providing the platform again. I have been struggling lately with events around me and not knowing how to write about them. I saw your weekly reminder this morning about being thankful and it gave me a means of processing and writing about the past two weeks. I am grateful to have your continuing support. 😊🌷
