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 one of our local Kroger stores. We stop there after church on Sunday mornings because we've found that they mark down breads & meats then. We've gotten loaves of bread for 35 cents, meats for a fraction of their cost, & so much more! Since we freeze our bread & meat, we don't have to worry about them going to waste before they get used.

2) I'm thankful that our garden is off to a great start. It's been about a week & a half since we started it & the seeds are starting to sprout.

3) I'm thankful for the nice rain shower we had the other day.

4) I'm thankful for cousins who play well together & love spending time w/ each other. Yesterday, we spent the day at my parents' house & we didn't hear much of the munchkins & their cousins while they were off playing.

5) I'm stealing this one from Judy's list last week...
I've often posted how I'm thankful for books & libraries, but I've taken for granted the ability I've been blessed w/ to enjoy them. So, for this week, I'm thankful for the ability to read.

What a great list! Good food at good prices and great books free from the library are indeed blessings.
