Gratitude Spiral: Day 137

Today, I’m grateful for Easter Sunday, which happens to fall on my parents’ wedding anniversary this year. Two blessings in one day.

I’m blessed to have both of my parents still living, and relatively healthy. And I’m blessed to have been raised in the Catholic faith and to have made it my own as an adult. Easter celebrates the most amazing gift, the most wonderful sign of sacrificial love, and a power that I can barely begin to understand. So, I rest in that incredible gift today, with an attitude of gratitude.

Gratitude Spiral: Day 136

Today, I’m grateful for live-streamed church services.

Technology has its perks in this time of social distancing. (It also has the power to suck us in and waste an awful lot of our time, but I won’t dwell on that today. :)) Today, I’m thankful that this Holy Week in the Christian church can still be special, even as we stay safely away from our congregations. Last night, I “virtually” attended the Good Friday service at my parish. And on Sunday, it’ll be an Easter mass online. And for these, I’m truly grateful.
