Small Blessings

I'm a bit slammed at the moment by tasks and deadlines, so I'll offer up a quote without my own embellishment or comment. From Thomas à Kempis (who died in 1471)...
Be thankful for the smallest blessing, and you will receive greater. Value the least gifts no less than the greatest, and simple graces as especial favors. If you remember the dignity of the Giver, no gift will seem small or mean, for nothing can be valuless that is given by the most high God.

Sometimes its hard to see the blessings in small things when you are waiting, watching, hoping and praying for big things. Thank you for the quote and the meditations it spawned.
