Thankful for Blessings - Joy, Joy, Joy

I love Wednesdays because it is the day I join my special friend, Judy, in this thankful meme at her inspiring blog, A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings. In this meme we give thanks for the five things we are most thankful for this past week and then link to Judy's blog. Be sure to also check out her website when you visit! Thank you, Judy, for helping me keep an attitude of gratitude!
Some of my blessings this week -
1. I am so thankful for this past weekend. We went to visit my son and daughter in law and grandbaby. He is 8 months old now! Wow! He is about 1 week away from crawling! What fun we had with him. Joy, joy, joy.
2. I am so thankful for my new monthly column at and for my blogs and my website. I am busy, but happy busy.
3. I am so thankful that Lent is coming! It is starting late this year and I found myself wishing it would hurry up and get here! (Huh?) I think I am just looking forward to renewal!
4. I am so thankful for my youngest son who turned 25 this past week! My "baby" is all grown up! How did that happen?
5. I am so thankful for a cellphone that can take pictures like this one! Joy, joy, joy.
Pop-pop, thank you for my new ball!

I too look forward to Lent. I think of it as a spiritual boot camp- helps me to get back into spiritual shape.
Thanks for sharing your blessings.
Hugs & God bless!

Love the photo and your list of gratitude always lifts my spirit. Interesting your anticipation of Lent this year. Once you mentioned it I too realized I was ready. Good insight.

Great blessings, Colleen! Time flies! I remember when your grandson was first born and it's hard to believe eight months have gone by already! I can tell he's Grammy's pride and joy :)

Jean, I know what you mean. My sense of being ready for Lent kinda came out of the blue!

Mary, you got that right! He is surely my pride and joy!
