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. My sister’s well behaved dog. My youngest sister is back in town and brought her dog Gracie. Gracie’s and English bull dog and so well mannered.
  2. My cousin Randy’s visit. My cousin works with the Nascar races and was in town last week. It was great to catch up with him. He’s got a down-to-earth demeanor and values family highly. He’s steeped in family history and a good conversationist, i.e. both as a listener and a speaker.
  3. J’Ann’s recipe for chicken salad. I found it again wedged between a shelf crammed with cookbooks, old and new. It’s a great recipe as it’s healthy with grapes and no mayo. (I’m trying to cut back on such condiments.)
  4. Kindred, a time traveling book by Octavia Butler. It’s a rich novel and not at all overly sci-fi-ish.
  5. A wonderful Saturday at Millennium Park full of sunshine and blue skies. (See below.)
