"If the only prayer you ever say in your life is thank you, it will be enough." - Meister Eckhart
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) On Sunday, after Mass, The Princess & I had a little mother-daughter time. We went to a local coffee shop that we've been wanting to try out & had a great time together. Deo Gratias!
3) I just love those one-on-one conversations that take place in the van. The Saint never fails to bring up some wonderful 6 yo insights & witty comments! Deo Gratias!
4) I was glad to be of some consolation for a resident's family member at work on Saturday. He was sad that one of my co-workers was leaving & also sad that he has to leave his wife each night. Deo Gratias!
5) Week two of school is going just as well as week one. We're off to a great start, I believe! Deo Gratias!
