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 the rain we've had off & on the past couple of days. It's not enough to save many of the already drought-spoiled crops, but is still very welcome & much needed.

2) I'm thankful for the opportunity to pick up a few extra hours (at time & a half) on Labor Day. One of the other receptionists called off, so I was able to go in for her.

3) I'm thankful for some great clearance sales we found on organic/natural foods at Kroger this past weekend. Organic cheese & veggieballs (meatless) were marked down to 99 cents. They weren't bad either!

4) I'm thankful for The Archangel's interest in making pancakes & doing a great job by himself. Today, he used half white flour & half wheat flour, then added chocolate chips to the batter. YUM!

5) I'm thankful for the great talks I have w/ the kids when we take our morning walks. We start our school day w/ prayer & some type of devotional reading, then, weather-permitting, we take a walk around the neighborhood...no bikes or toys...just the five of us walking & talking. Even if someone complains about the walk at first, by the time w/ get going, everyone is enjoying it. Once the weather is a bit cooler, we're planning a day trip to a park...taking our schoolwork, lunch, & enjoying the fresh fall air. I can't wait!

Yummy pancakes - I'm heading outdoors with my son right now.

We also pray and do a devotional - awesome! Let's unite our prayers.

Your morning prayer time and walks with the kiddos sounds like heaven-on-earth, to be sure! What wonderful memories you are making!
