Thankful for Blessings - January 26

I love Wednesdays because it is the day I can join my 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. Thank you, Judy, for helping me keep an attitude of gratitude!
Some of my blessings this week -
1. My husband and I enjoyed one of our Christmas gifts this weekend! We received tickets from some of our children to a live production of South Pacific! I had seen the movie but not the play and it was awesome! The talent, the voices! I was truly thankful for this thoughtful gift.
2. When you get a scare like we did when my hubby went into the hospital, you are reminded of what is really most important in your life and you learn to appreciate every moment. I have not taken one moment with my husband for granted and I am so grateful that he is doing well and I thank the Lord for each new day.
3. I feel so blessed to be a lector at our church. To be able to proclaim the Word, to minister in this way is a blessing and a joy for me.
4. I am so grateful for my faith. I am so thankful that I was led to the Catholic Church. It is here in His Church, that I have found Jesus.
5. I am so grateful for my children and grandchildren. Here is an adorable picture of my youngest grandbaby!! He is 7 months old now! Where does time go?

Where does the time go, indeed! He is so precious!

Congratulations on not taking the moments w/ your DH for granted. I'm glad to hear he is doing well & will continue praying for both of you.

BTW - I just finished reading "Blueberry Muffins" this morning. Very well done & heart-felt. Thank you for writing & sharing it!

My son was on the stage crew at his Catholic high school. I went with them on a field trip to New York to see the play South Pacific. It was great! Every single one of your posts this week has reminded me of my father and his years in the service. South Pacific also involved actors who were in the military. These are some of the best stories around to here!

Eileen, oh!! I bet it was great seeing South Pacific in New York! Thanks for your comment! God bless!
