Thankful for Blessings - Family Pix

My blogging friend, Judy, has an inspiring blog, A Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings. Join her every Wednesday in giving thanks for the many blessings we receive from God. Write a list of 5 blessings and then link to Judy's blog. Thanks, Judy, for helping me keep an "attitude of gratitude!" :)
Some of my blessings this week:
1. Thank you, Lord, for your gift of family! (We had a great visit this past weekend with my two sons, daughter-in-law and one grandson, who is now walking all over the place like it was no big deal. (except on the beach, it is  a little tough! but there were plenty of helping hands!)

2. Thank you, Lord, for your gift of joy!

3. Thank you, Lord, for your gift of beauty!

4. Thank you, Lord, for the gift of World Youth Day! We have some teens going from our parish and it is quite a joy to see the pictures and videos being sent back for us to see!

5. Thank you, Lord, for the gift of summer and beaches and time off from work and school and more time with family and how about those ice cream cones?!?!?!
