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 the unconditional love of my family. I know I'm not easy to live with at times & am not always the best mom/wife I can be. But, I also know how forgiving they can be of my faults.

2) I'm thankful for each new day I'm given to start fresh, leaving the bad of the prior day behind me.

3) I'm thankful for the example of my parents, HandyGramps & HelpfulGrammy. They are both so loving & helpful to others in times of need.

4) I'm thankful for the abundance of food we have.

5) I'm thankful for good books, esp. those which stay with you long after you've read them.
