Gary's Prayers - "The Basics"

(Back in 2010, even though Gary's language skills were waning, he would still pray at meals.  I wrote down some of these prayers in my journal.)

"Thank you for giving us friends.  For giving us opportunity. Also for food.  Amen" G.P.

Friends, opportunity and food.  These three are a good reminder to me too. 

  1. I'm thankful for a good friend who is helping me navigate some new accounting software.  I love to paint and be creative, but numbers are not my thing, so she is a huge blessing to me. 
  2. I'm so glad for the opportunity to go to a very special wedding this weekend.  Caregivers are lined up and our daughter is in town for the event.  Looking forward to seeing many old friends.
  3. I am thankful for the nutritious food that Gary is still able to eat.  It's pureed but tasty.

What are some reasons you are thanking God for your friends, opportunities, and food?  Care to share in the comments (at bottom of page) to encourage others?

"In everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:18
