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 to finally be feeling better. Boy, that flu really wiped me out this past weekend!

2) I'm thankful Casinodad was such a BIG help to me when I was sick.

3) I'm thankful for the care & concern of the munchkins over the weekend. On Sat., The Saint came inside & brought me a little flower from the yard so that I would feel better.

4) I'm thankful for the much needed rain we've had the last couple days. It's not enough, but it definitely helps!

5) And, on today's Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, I'm thankful that Mary said "Yes!" to being the Mother of our dear Lord, for her loving example of Motherhood, & for Her prayerful intercessions on our behalf.

I have had an awful cough lately. Can't get rid of it. I'm sorry you were feeling bad but happy that your kids were so helpful to you!

Have you ever been to Ocean City, Maryland. Maybe some day in the future you can rent our beach house. It is right on the beach.

Amen to your whole list! Glad you are better.
I always loved it when my boys would bring me a flower they had picked themselves. So sweet. God bless!
