Thankful for Blessings - Back to Work

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. For my job, thank you Lord. Just went back to work after a 2 week vacation. I am so blessed to be working at my church and I am very grateful for my job.
2. My vacation, thank you Lord. So how many of you are wondering how long I am going to milk this vacation time? well, just until I go on retreat and then I will go on and on about that!
3. For books to read, thank you Lord. I got re-aquainted with "light" reading during my time off. I had become too busy to read just for the fun of it and if you are too busy to read, something has to change! It did. I hope.
4. For my hubby, who makes me laugh every single day, thank you Lord. What a gift laughter is. What a blessing my husband is.
5. For today, thank you Lord. For the rain, and for the laughter and for the gift of this day, thank you Lord.

You & Judy must be on the same wavelength this week...both of you listed books & rain! And what better time for light reading than when it's raining :)

Jade, thank you!

munchesmom, I agree - reading while sitting in a comfy chair and watching the rain outside - heaven!

"for the gift of this day"
Wow. I love that.
I am so glad that you had such a wonderful vacation AND that you have a job to return to that you enjoy so very much. Thanks for sharing your grateful heart!

Jean, thank you!

Judy, I try to remember that each day is a gift. This meme helps me to do that - thank you!

I love books! I too am trying to find more time for reading. It has been good. Sorry I've been 'out of the loop' lately.
