A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings

My dear blogging friend, 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 sweet hugs & kisses from the munchkins. Even The Prophet, at age 10 1/2, still loves to give them. One night, he specifically asked for a hug because the one I gave him the night before "felt so comfortable" to him.

2) I'm thankful for the helpfulness The Saint exhibits. He'll come up to me & say, "I help, Mommy-uh?" (I'm not sure why he puts the "uh" at the end of Mommy. He does it w/ Daddy too!)

3) I'm thankful for the faith The Princess continues to share. Last night, during reading time, she was going through the leftover pages in her PSR book. She cut out all the pictures of saints & this morning, pasted them on construction paper to make a collage.

4) I'm thankful for thrift stores. I found another one the other day near where I work & it just so happened that everything was 50% off that day. I bought 6 pairs of pants & 3 long sleeve t-shirts for The Saint, one pair of pants for The Prophet, & a small bag of melon flavored gummy rings for all of us. Grand total w/ tax: $9.50! (BTW - The gummy candies were a brand new package, not resale! LOL!)

5) I'm thankful I was able to get set up in our new time clock system at work, even though I forgot to go in last week. When I remembered, I thought I was too late & was afraid I wouldn't get paid, but thankfully everything worked out.

Isn't it wonderful to see each child's special gifts. They are shown from such early ages.

I love your list, especially #1 and his comment about the hug feeling comfortable! I always loved those hugs. My youngest called them "guggles" (his word for snuggles!)
