Gratitude

“If the only prayer you say in your life is ‘thank you’ that would be enough.”

Meister Eckhart, the German philosopher who strongly influenced the Quaker movement, said this in the thirteenth century.

This made an impression on me, being as most of my prayers are along the lines of “Help me, pleeeeeease!  I have been aware of the importance of gratitude for many years.  In fact, I make it a point to say thank you for another day each morning before I get out of bed, and I have a gratitude journal.  Still, I definitely ask for help more than I say thank you.  That will change.

 

About Elizabeth

I love to meditate, make mandalas and crochet. Most of all, I love to share what I have learned from the challenges I have faced and the obstacles I have overcome to bring joy to others.
