“Gracias a Dios!” My mother would say this incessantly… so would every other Latino-American woman I know.
We are grateful for everything from God. Whether because we were indoctrinated when the Catholics came to South America, or we came from Spain which was predominantly catholic.
This phrase was simply in us, part of our culture. In Canada, I learned ‘thank you’ for the first time.
Thank you is a requirement, it isn’t just good manners. It is thanking our fellow human beings for an act of kindness. If we want more goodness, then we have to praise it more!

For me, my ‘gracias a Dios’, ‘thank you, God’, takes on many faces.
P.S. I realize this can be a controversial topic. Please understand we are each entitled to our own opinion. I am inclusive. I believe in possibility. I am cool with what you think, and I hope you would honor what I think too.
For me, it is God, the universe, Mother Nature, spirit, Buddha. The vis, soul, consciousness, etc.
Many names, the same meaning.
To tell you the truth, I’m super grateful for my childhood. I was exposed to all. In my adulthood, I was exposed to Jehovah’s witnesses and to Christianity.
My one issue is when we are called sinners. I feel that it puts us into a category that doesn’t allow us to be better than that. So I choose not to believe that, but I love everything else that the church stands for.
Gracias a Dios!
The most important factor in having a grateful God practice (or whatever you call it) is that you repeat it. So practice is absolutely necessary, and you need to feel that your energy is one with it. Otherwise, you can never relax into the practice.
So gratefulness is key. It is spoken about in the bible as a staple of a good life.
The question is this: When good comes to you, how do you respond? Do you credit yourself or do you give it to God? Do you feel grateful and completely enveloped in grace?
I encourage you to give it over. If you wish to receive it, you must first deliver it. If you do not… Well, then how can you expect it to get better?
As it says in the bible:
Ask and it will be given to you;Matthew 7:7 NIV
Seek and you will find;
Knock and the door will be opened to you.
