A Thankful Woman’s Book of Blessings

On Wednesdays, Judy, creator of an inspiring blog, A Thankful Woman’s Book of Blessings encourages participants to list their blessings, to give thanks for the five things in the past week and then link to Judy’s blog.

Be sure to also check out her other blog and her website when you visit.

This week I am thankful for:

  1. Getting to play hostess. There is, I’m convinced, a spiritual side to hospitality. This week my department director stayed with me during her visit to China. I reveled in sprucing up the apartment and wouldn’t have bought the extra house plants and new placemats, etc. for myself. Touches of color and texture here and there added a lift. Also, there’s a joy in thinking “what can I do to make my guest more at home.”
  2. That my classroom observations went well. I had been nervous, but things went well.
  3. That I now get CCTV-9, a CNN of China. Yes, it’s a mouthpiece, but I get English “news travel shows now.
  4. That I just have one more day of school this week. It’s been tiring.
  5. For the cooler weather and even the rain we’ve had. It’s refreshing.

    I love your first item! I agree…there is a spiritual side to hospitality & it sounds like you were able to express it for your department director. It’s all in the little things we can do to make someone feel more at home in our own homes.
