For all the blessings known and unknown, we give thanks…

This time of year our thoughts turn to blessings.  There is an old prayer I recall, “For all the blessings, known and unknown, remembered and forgotten, we give thee thanks.”

Every day I am showered with blessings, some I recognize, others remain hidden or unspoken. Some blessings I hold on to forever and some I just forget, nevertheless,I am very blessed.  When someone asks me “How are you?”  I need to say,  I AM BLESSED!

It really is the unforgotten blessings and the more than half-forgotten ones that I do well to look back, savor and remember.  They are part of my life experience and they have created  a sacred journey.  Take time to recall how you are blessed and know that we are united in gratitude today!
