"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.
4) I gave the Blessings the week off school. With the great weather for painting, Trick or Treat, & our All Saints' party, I thought it would be a nice break for them. Deo Gratias!

It's been a while since I've posted any of HandyGramps' articles. I figure w/ Halloween coming up this week, it would be the perfect time to share this one he wrote in 2004 & updated a bit this year. It's a longer than a normal blog post, so I will split it in two parts...one today & one on Thursday. I will include the Bibliography w/ each post, to cover legal aspects! Please share your thoughts...he'd love to hear them!
