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 that my dear Mom Therapy friend's little boy is smiling & will hopefully be coming home from the hospital today. Many prayers have been said for this sweet little boy since he was taken there two days ago!

2) I'm thankful for my faith-filled little man, The Saint. Yesterday morning, he came downstairs & told me he felt God. I asked where & he pointed to his tummy. Later, he also told me that he felt Jesus.

3) I'm thankful for the time we've been able to spend w/ Casinodad's dad, who has been visiting between us & Casinodad's sister for the past couple of weeks. The munchkins have really enjoyed their time w/ Grandpa.

4) I'm thankful The Archangel is enjoying his new ministry as a server at church. Each Sunday, he volunteers in case someone hasn't shown up & he's done a great job.

5) I'm thankful for the tent that enabled the munchkins to get past their arguing this morning. From the moment they all came downstairs, they were bickering & yelling at each other. Finally one of them had the idea to build a tent that takes up our whole living room...not one argument since!

Inventive play is such a blessing! The tent building worked wonders.

A lovely list.

Great list. Glad to hear that little boy may be going home.
The Saint sounds like my youngest when he was little.
God bless!

Aloha from Maryland! Is the Archangel an alter server? This was such a good opportunity for my two older sons. Once they got a little older, they gravitated from alter servers to ushers. Pretty sneaky if you ask me. (just kidding)

Ahhhh, yes! Tents solve many sibling squabbles! Number 1 is cause for GREAT CELEBRATION! So happy to hear this! And Number 2 is simply priceless. SO DEAR. Joey has recently become a Server along with your son...and I look forward to seeing his big brother Jake train him on the altar and my eldest son did Jacob years ago :) (I'll still probably hang my head and pray many Hail Marys when he lights the candles though!!!! SHEESH!)Thanks for this beautiful list of blessings!
