Thankful for Blessings- Life and Love

My blogging friend, Judy, has an inspiring blog, A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings. Join her every Wednesday in giving thanks for the many blessings we receive from God. Write a list of 5 blessings and then link to Judy's blog. Thanks, Judy, for helping me keep an "attitude of gratitude!" :)
I am thankful for:
1. For Life, thank you, Lord. Help me to remember what a gift Life is and to model for others a respect for all life.
2. For my family and friends, thank you, Lord. I love them. Help me to never take them for granted.
3. For the gift of faith, thank you, Lord. Help me to grow in that faith and to grow in trust of you.
4. For the Eucharist, thank you, Lord. What a blessing and gift You have given to us. I love and adore You.
5. For your mother, thank you, Lord. Help me to love Mary more and more everyday.
What blessings would you like to share?

This is a beautiful list Colleen. An attitude of gratitude brings about such joy!

God bless

Colleen said...

Eileen, thank you. I know what you mean - I realized that I am so grateful for all on my list but I take it for granted a lot of the time. Sometimes it is good to shout it from the rooftop!

Daily Grace, thank you! Yes it does bring joy!!
