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.

This week I am thankful for:

  1. The beautiful Christmas mass we went to at the cathedral on Monday night.
  2. The chance to celebrate Christmas with family members though I did miss my brother, who’s serving our country in the Middle East and my sister and her family out in Conneticutt
  3. The snow we got yesterday so we could have a white Christmas.
  4. Christmas cookies, though too many are a bad thing.
  5. Christmas music that fills the air and the masterpieces that depict the nativity.
  6. And most of all, the birth of Jesus who came to save us all, to die for our sins.
