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) Following this one from last week (I'm thankful
for little toddler boys who love the song "Like a Shepherd" & will sing along w/ Momma.)...I'm thankful for little toddler boys who sing "Like a Shepherd" to HelpfulGrammy on the phone. He was so sweet & told her, "Dat's dee only song I know!" (Of course he does know more!)

2) I'm thankful I was able to find a new (still in the box) answering machine at Goodwill yesterday for only $2.99. The one we were using finally died. It was my parents' old one (about 20 years old!)

3) I'm thankful for the sweet surprise I received in the mail the other day from Judy! Thanks again, my dear friend! The timing was perfect...I received it during her wonderful radio show!

4) I'm thankful for the great weather this past Sunday. We were finally able to get our garden started...sweet corn, green beans, squash, watermelon, cucumbers, carrots, & cherry tomatoes.

I'm thankful for the progress we've made w/ The Archangel. He is no longer taking any medications for his ADHD & aggression and is no longer seeing a psychologist (shes' still available if we ever need her, though). While he'll always have both issues, I think we've all learned some great tools to lessen the outbursts. I'm due for another update blog post, so hopefully I'll get that done soon.

Thanks for gettin' the word out about our radio show! I am really enjoying the guests!
When I first read the part about the answering machine, I thought it said "$ 299.00"!!! I was thinking, "WHAT?!? She calls THAT a good deal????? What is she thinking????" LOL Then, I realized my mistake! LOL
