I have been thinking a lot about thankfulness during this Lenten season. Oftentimes in life we forget to be thankful for obvious things such as our own beating hearts, our loved ones and family members, the food we put into our system, and the roof over our heads. When I walk around Dublin I often pray silently and give thanks to God because so many people in this city and world do not have these things and are praying for what we so often take for granted. Take a moment today to think about how grateful you are. Once you have done that, go out into the world and perform an act of kindness for someone who needs your help.
