I love Fridays! But not because of the coming weekend but because of the occasion to recall wonderful moments of the past week and share them with you!
Yesterday, my friend Karen of Your Are Pretty Fucking Special posted a wonderful article about the transforming power of love Finding The Good. She was inspired by the way a preacher transformed his desperation about the attacks in France into a loving power. Because in the end we all have to send out love in order to have love. As hatred causes hatred, love causes love. It is a decision we all can make deliberately.
Another wonderful post was published by Yadadarcyyada. Her post 10 ways to be grateful even on bad days is also about the way to transform the negative charged energy into a peaceful one, helping instead of fighting, supporting instead of ignoring, forgiving instead of judging.
Thank you to all of you who have shared my post Let’s Build A Chain Of Love. It got 130 views, 19 rebloggs and ping backs, and several retweets. Thank you all so much!
I am very happy and thankful that my blog reached 900 followers this week. My 900th buddy is Augustineodey. Thank you so much each single one of you! No matter how often you can stop by for a visit, how many comments or likes you drop: I am thankful to have you! Love you all!
A big thank you goes to Carisa Adrienne of Sometimes Silver Linings Are Blue. For a while I was trying to figure out how I can find more of those moving pictures. I had no idea how they were called. I only found them by chance. This may sound ridiculous for most of you…. but I confess, I had no clue!Carisa adds such images to all of her posts and I love it. She picks them so perfectly fitting. I asked her and she was so kind to tell me that they were called gifs. Since that I cannot get enough of them…
I could go on forever…
Thank you for 2 awards:

Just a thought
What if someone slapped you in the face and you…
… slapped back?
… just turned around and walked away?
… are blessing them before walking away?
… try to see the struggle in themselves and send love?
It is easy to say that we should stop fighting back and even pray for the ones that caused the pain. But in the end this is the only way to break the circle of hatred and revenge. It will never stop otherwise. If no one hits back anymore…. who is to fight? Only love brings love. Love can transform. Smile at someone and it is hard for them not to reflexively smile back.
There are people who lost their loved ones but are able to refuse hating the killers or the attackers. Actually they are not willing to water the plant of horror others sowed. They are the ones we should follow in their behavior. If someone who experienced something like that is able to do so, so can everybody.
Have a peaceful Friday!
In Love and Light
