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.

1) I'm thankful that Fall weather has finally arrived. I was really getting tired of 90 degree heat. What we have now is perfect!

2) I'm thankful for the dear, sweet note that The Archangel wrote to The Princess last night. This is a HUGE thanksgiving because they are the two who are CONSTANTLY fighting w/ each other.

3) I'm thankful for The Prophet being a BIG help w/ The Saint when I made a large shopping trip to Aldi the other day w/ all four munchkins. I didn't think that 2:30 in the afternoon would be busy, but is was...w/ only one cashier up front!

4) I'm thankful for a great visit w/ to my in-laws for dinner on Sun. Casinodad was going to take the munchkins on Sat. while I was at work, but I would have missed out on the great food, conversation, & time spent w/ family.

5) I'm thankful for Casinodad & all his help around the house, especially on weekends. I work all day on Sat., so I'm not home to do the usual weekend cleaning that I used to do. He will normally sweep AND mop the kitchen floor while I'm away. I have not had to mop in at least 8 months :)

Love your list. What a blessing when our children get along. My 2 boys fought a lot when they were young and they are best friends now. God bless!

I hope you save that note!!!!!
What a beautiful list you've shared...thank you!
YAY for Aldi...we buy ten gallons of milk at a time there as it is literally HALF the price of the other stores! (You can freeze milk, by the way)
And YAY for Casinodad! Great guy there!
