A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings

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.

Because it is still so fresh in my mind, this week is my Dayton Homeschool Conference Thanksgiving Edition!

1) I'm thankful for the time Casinodad & I had to spend together. I'm so glad he wanted to go w/ me &, while we missed the munchkins, it was nice to have that time alone.

2) I'm thankful for the money I was able to save on some school books for next year. I've been perusing the catalogs the past couple months, picking out what we'll use so I had a good idea of the cost. When I saw a bunch of the books cheaper than the catalog, I had to get them!

3) I'm thankful to have met two great Catholic celebrities, Danielle Bean & Regina Doman. The money I saved in school books went towards to purchase of one each of their books...which they signed for me. See my Celebrity Status post for more details. (Judy, I even mentioned you in the post!)

4) I'm thankful for all the wonderful, inspiring speakers who were at the conference. Casinodad & I came away w/ so many great thoughts & ideas for our family & homeschool life.

5) Overall, I'm thankful that everything just fell into place for us to be able to go this year.
