"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 Saturday, July 11, we had a large family reunion...the first on my dad's paternal side in MANY years. What a wonderful day...catching up w/ family & meeting those I've never met before! Deo Gratias!
3) This past Sunday, we had another family reunion...this time on HelpfulGrammy's maternal side of the family. It wasn't as large as the previous weekend's reunion, but was definitely full of love, laughter, & memories. Deo Gratias!
