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 am SOOOO thankful for our Guardian Angels last Thursday when a man tried to get The Prophet's attention & was following us around a store. You can read the full detail in THIS POST.

2) I'm thankful for The Prophet's interest & skill in playing the clarinet in his homeschool band. You can see/hear his own song HERE.

3) I'm thankful for all the fun I'm having trying new healthy recipes for our family...granola, various breads (strawberry, raspberry), tahini cookies, pumpkin chili, & so much more! Not all of it goes over well, but at least most of the family is trying them.

4) I'm thankful that we had no damage from the strong winds & rain from Hurricane Sandy. Praying for all those on the east coast who have lost much & have a long road of repairs ahead of them.

5) I'm thankful for the Food, Inc. Discussion Group Judy started on Facebook. Last night, I posted a question regarding snacks for my picky eater & w/in minutes I had a TON of great ideas. I think I might even be enjoying some of them in the very near future!

I read your post about #1. Very frightening. I am glad you called the police. I am thankful you are all ok.
I will check out the song!
I am glad you came through the storm ok.
Those recipes sound like fun, and healthy too! Awesome!
Great list. God bless!
