Gratitude Friday


Inspired by Diana many bloggers have been taking time on Fridays to think about things that we're grateful for.

Today, I'm thinking about how fortunate I've been to have had the opportunity to travel so often, especially to Italy. I've seem some remarkable things, including the very beautiful reliefs on the facade of Bologna's Basilica of San Petronio. Construction of this enormous church began in 1390. However, the facing of the main facade remains unfinished. Still, many artists have left their mark here.

Pretty much the epitome of "the journey is the goal" -- I sometimes get hung up on the fact that we have not yet finished our place. It is posts like yours which remind me that I am part of a much bigger process, and getting finished is not the important part, it is how I develop along the way. Lovely and important post, I think.

I am also grateful that we are able to travel,especially in such tough economic times.

Great shot. I too am so grateful that I have been able to spend so much time in Italy.

Hi Sandra, travel and the opportunity to see so many beautiful things is something I can really relate to being very grateful for. Wonderful post!

Have a great Sunday evening!


Travel is something that I am grateful for too! It really enriches our lives, doesn't it.


Thanks everyone!
