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 a peaceful resolution to an incident w/ a neighborhood child yesterday. Dared by other kids, he popped all of our munchkins' bike tires w/ thumbtack. His father was very helpful & offered to patch the tires for us.

2) I'm thankful for the beautiful weather we've had the past couple of days...mid to upper 70s, breezy, & refreshing. We're in for a HOT weekend, so I soaked up what I could!

3) I'm thankful for my parents & their 46 years of marriage (as of June 25)...what a wonderful example they've set for my sister & me.

4) I'm thankful for a delicious dinner w/ my dear hubby on Sunday. My parents gave us an Olive Garden gift card for our anniversary & we had a wonderful meal, enjoying a bit of time just to ourselves.

5) I'm thankful for a dear college friend who loaned us both Season One & Two of Downton Abbey. What a great series! Casinodad & I are hooked! I love the scenery, costumes, music, & characters...esp. Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess. She is a HOOT! Enjoy these "Top 10 Maggie Moments." My favorite is #8.

What a great list. How nice that the bike tire incident was handled so peaceably. A good neighbor to have!
We like the Olive Garden, too. Glad you had some time to yourselves.
I agree - I liked #8 the best!
God bless!

LOL Thanks for sharing "Dowager Countess" moments! She leaves me in tears from laughter!

So glad that you and your hubby had such a special date: LOVE Olive Garden!

As for number 1...that is SO AWFUL and cruel...and the fact that you were able to "see a positive" and count it as blessing is amazing. You are a special person!
