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 The Saint went to preschool PSR on his own on Sunday. The first week, I had to go w/ him & ended up missing most of Mass. All week we talked about him going by himself & thankfully he did.

2) I'm thankful for sweet hugs, kisses, & "I love my Mommy!" songs from The Saint. He is fascinated w/ arms & will hug & kiss mine, saying he loves my "fluffy arms!"

3) I'm thankful for a semi-successful garage sale we had this past weekend. All the stuff that didn't sell got boxed up & placed in the crawlspace to hold for another sale next spring.

4) I'm thankful for my recent discovery of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen's writings. Yes, I've known for years who he was, but have never read anything he'd written until just recently. I'm reading "Your Life is Worth Living," a collection of his recordings in book form. WOW! What insight & inspiration I've found so far...& I'm only on chapter seven (out of fifty).

5) I'm thankful for the opportunity to listen to Judy as she was the guest speaker on last night's Ultimate Homeschool Expo. She shared a lot of great knowledge & inspiration for homeschooling moms. Thanks, Judy!

Fluffy arms! Love it! Love hugs too!
I have been seeing some great quotes from Fulton Sheen lately myself. I do not know much about him. May need to read that book!
Congrats to Judy!
Great list as usual!
