"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) At our recent Rosary group, The Princess met a new friend. Two days later, they got together to spend a couple hours playing & getting to know one another more. Deo Gratias!
3) The Archangel helped me get some of our fall decorations out yesterday. He was quite helpful in carrying the boxes & helping me decide where to place some things. Deo Gratias!
4) For the Communion song at Mass on Sunday, we sang a beautiful arrangement of one of my favorite songs, Here I Am, Lord. I felt so much peace & joy! Deo Gratias!
5) I played some flute duets w/ The Princess the other day. It just keeps amazing me how far she's come in just a few months! Deo Gratias!
