Deo Gratias

"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.
**********
1) My MIL gave us some groceries, including some very yummy teas that I've been enjoying in the afternoons & evenings. Deo Gratias! 

2) Yesterday, the Blessings got together w/ their friends while I spent time chatting w/ their mom, my dear "Mom Therapy" friend. Deo Gratias!

3) Choir practice last night really touched me. It's been a rough week & the music we practiced was very soothing & uplifting. Deo Gratias! 

4) I made a new Crockpot recipe last week...Cantonese Chicken. It was delicious & will definitely make another appearance in our kitchen. Deo Gratias!

5) The older three Blessings had their band concert on Sunday. I'm so proud of how far they've all come. Deo Gratias

Maria,

I love crockpot meals. And I have always found music to be healing.
Thanks for joining me!
