I'm feeling REALLY thankful today, so the theme of this post is simply...7 things I'm thankful for from this past week. These are not in any particular order.
Doing a post of gratitude from time to time helps me re-focus my thoughts and prayers. Especially when life can be such a roller coaster ride and is often so busy...it's a good idea for me to sit down and just pour out my gratitude to Jesus. One thing my parents taught me early on and throughout my growing up was how important those words 'thank you' are and how important it is to say them. Now, as an adult, having gone through much conversion of heart and growing up I feel even more thankful than ever and I try really hard to teach my children to reflect on all the blessings in their life and to make sure and say those words OFTEN just like I did as a kid and just like I try to do as an adult. Being thankful around Thanksgiving time each year is natural and just 'goes with the season', but I feel true gratitude goes beyond that 'time of year' and reaches all aspects of our life. So, dig deep and make sure to at least tell Our Lord thank you for all your blessings and at the same time...when you need to... SAY THOSE WORDS!

|One of my favorite pictures. This huge bloom grew on the most boring tree ever. Yellow, my favorite color and the beauty that comes from this boring tree...makes me think in a spiritual way.|
