Blessings

Dear Lord,

Today I want to take the time to thank you for your blessings. I wanted you to know that I am very grateful that I can:

-Pour a coffee without spilling it anymore
-Get myself dressed without pain
-Lift my daughter with ease
-Sleep
-Go for months without getting sick

I also thank you for walking beside me all the years I was ill and for lifting me up when I didn't think I could go on any more. My heart is yours, Lord.  Amen.

  6. What a beautiful prayer Mary!! How often we forget about the ordinary things that are, in reality, very special blessings!

  7. Thanks everyone! My husband used to pour my coffee in the morning because my hands would be very weak and I would spill it when I poured :) It seems like such a small thing but I see pouring my own coffee as a reminder of God's kindness to me.
