“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.” – Meister Eckhart

“Thank you,” is my prayer this Thanksgiving, and for every day here after.

No matter where, with whom, or how, I celebrate – my prayer is the same.

“Thank God, life, and the universe for everyone and everything sent your way.

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. It turns problems into gifts, failures into successes, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. It can turn an existence into a real life, and disconnected situations into important and beneficial lessons.

“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

“Gratitude makes things right.

“Gratitude turns negative energy into positive energy. There is no situation or circumstance so small or large that it is not susceptible to gratitude’s power.

“We can start with who we are and what we have today, apply gratitude, then let it work its magic.

“Say thank you, until you mean it. If you say it long enough, you will believe it.”

– Melody Beattie

I’ll say thank you until I mean it. And, if that’s all I ever say, it’ll be enough.

Happy Thanksgiving.

“In the ordinary choices of every day we begin to change the direction of our lives.” – Eknath Easwaran
