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
1) I'm thankful for the beauty of fall & the opportunity to take some awesome portraits of our Blessings. I decided to do that instead of taking them somewhere...saved at least $75 & the portraits look great! These are the ones I had developed into 8x10s to hang in our family room.
|The Prophet - almost 12|
|The Archangel - 9 1/2|
|The Saint - 4|
|The Princess - 7 1/2|
3) I'm thankful for the wonderful date I had w/ Matt Sat. evening. We went to see my nephew in Once Upon a Mattress, his last musical before he leaves for his mission in January.
4) I'm thankful that, even though we don't have much money, we have enough to make it in the crazy world. We don't have to have the latest technologies, a brand new car, or a larger house (well, a slightly bigger one MIGHT be useful!). What we don't have in possessions, we make up for in the closeness of our family (MOST days...LOL!)
5) I'm thankful for the laughter our Blessings bring to our home. Sure, we have moments of stress & chaos, but being aware of the joyous times makes it all worthwhile!
