Colleen, from her inspiring blog Thoughts on Grace, hosts this wonderful meme each Wednesday. She says, "Deo Gratias is Latin for Thanks be to God. Remembering to give thanks for all of our blessings, big & small, helps us to find God in our everyday moments and gives us an attitude of gratitude!"
Each week, I join Colleen in remembering & sharing the many blessings in my life. This is such a great exercise for me, helping me to focus on the good that truly is happening in my life, no matter how many trials & stresses I may have.
2) While we could really use some rain, I have to say the weather the past couple weeks has been beautiful...sunny skies, fall temperatures, just beautiful! Deo Gratias!
3) My aunt (HandyGramps' sister) & uncle were in town visiting for a few days. It was fun to catch up w/ them, play some dice games, & share old stories. Deo Gratias!
4) I gave The Princess some material that I didn't need anymore. Last night, she handed me a pillowcase she's made for me out of it. She's so creative! Deo Gratias!
5) Speaking of The Princess, ever since Matt & I returned from our trip last Thursday, she & The Prophet have been getting along quite well. This is a huge change since his normal attitude towards her is usually not a nice one. Deo Gratias!
