A Thankful Woman's Book of ANNIVERSARY 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.

Honoring our anniversary today...

1) I'm thankful for 14 years of marriage to Casinodad...through good times & bad, sickness & health, births & deaths, we have only grown stronger in our faith & love for one another.

2) I'm thankful that even on his stressful, busy workday, Casinodad took the time, 15 1/2 years ago, to step aside & talk to me, asking for my phone number.

3) I'm thankful that our union has been blessed with four beautiful children.

4) I'm thankful for the beautiful hanging bouquets of flowers he surprised me with yesterday...one basket of purple petunias & one basket of white wishbone flowers. They are gorgeous editions to our porch.

5) I'm thankful that we both made the "choice" to stay together, even after our first argument & other trials over the years. With previous boyfriends, the first argument would be the last...with Casinodad, I chose to work through the issue & we've only grown stronger.
