A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings (2nd Post Today)

Judy over at A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings, hosts this meme every Wednesday. Simply list five things (or a prayer or any thoughts) for which you are truly thankful this week. Voicing my thanks helps put my life in perspective & realize that, no matter how bad things might be, there is still MUCH good surrounding me.

1) I'm thankful for all the prayers for Casinodad's best friend this past week. He's doing so much better than expected. He was taken off the ventilator Monday & has been talking.

2) I'm thankful for a great visit w/ my friend & her kids yesterday. Our kids gathered up any toys they didn't want anymore & traded. Then any leftovers are being donated.

3) I'm thankful Casinodad has Thursday & Friday off this week. We're going to spend a lot of family time together!

4)I'm thankful for my mother saving us a lot of money. I mentioned last week that I was looking at buying new comforter for our bed. She had one that fit our bed perfectly & is a great match for our walls.

5) I'm thankful that a potentially stressful situation did not happen. It worked itself out!

Thank you for sharing your list. Moms are great blessing, aren't they? Much more if they saved much money for us ;-)

Pray you enjoy your family time.

Happy Mother's Day to you and your mom!

WOW! What an awesome list!
Every single thing is cause for great rejoicing!
Your "toy" idea is superb! I am going to host a "toy trade" this summer...that how much I loved your idea!
And YAY for your Mom presenting you with a comforter just when you needed one!
The busy-bee background sure is cute!
