holy experience

It's a brand new week and I have much to be grateful for. I am counting my blessings and I hope you'll join along!

I'm grateful that although he's a boy he loves Princess Charlie enough to allow her to place ribbon in his hair for a quick picture. He even posed! Too funny!

I have always suffered with back issues (scoliosis) and dear hubby purchased a brand new massage chair and foot massaging machine for me this weekend. He said "If I'm going to pamper you I might as well go all the way." I'm so grateful for this man!!!

This beautiful Angel survived Katrina as well and everytime I look at her I know everything will be okay. I'm deeply grateful for that message she gives. :)

I'm grateful for the heartfelt laughter my nephew brings into this home of ours.

I'm grateful for this pretty new journal!
I have so much to say and so many more things in which to be grateful for.
I can write them down and one day maybe my Grand-kids will read it.

I'm grateful Princess Charlie put these goodies together for the kiddies in Methodist Children's Hospital.

I'm grateful for the love and support I receive daily within my home.
I'm grateful that I can hear when my puppy son barks and wakes me up at 7:20 on a Saturday morning.
I'm grateful for God's love and guidance
I'm grateful to end this post knowing I still have much more to be grateful for :o)


  1. Cute furbaby! What an amazing daughter you have.

  2. I'm grateful to have a wonderful family and some great friends

    I'm grateful that I have an abundance of breast milk to provide my son with his best start in life

    I'm grateful of this new day given to us full of sun.

    i'm grateful that I have work and soooo much more!

  3. What a beautiful list, and one that makes me grateful I can read! Your husband is a doll; what a wonderful gift! And that angel... I swear she looks like she would start talking if given the prompt.

    Have a perfect day today, and keep shining that gorgeous light of yours!

  4. That is a great list of thanksgivings. :o) What a sweet hubby to get you some massaging equipment.

    Bless you today!

  5. Thanks for that particular shot of your Katrina surviving angel. One day, I'll want to hear more about that experience...wow.

  6. Tabitha,
    I am overjoyed that you are overjoyed! Joy, as you know, is contagious--as is gratitude.

    Today I am grateful for a day absolutely full of things I love to do: Writing. Gardening. Spiritual Direction with a lovely other in my home. Preparing to be a guest at Brandi's blog on Wednesday. Spending the evening with my ever-wonderful hubby. Fixing a cold pasta salad for dinner. The sun is shining and it is full-blown summer here, finally!, which I love, love, love. Maybe a dip in the lake.

    Sun always makes me happy, as does reading your blog, my sweet companion of the journey...

  7. What a great moment of thanksgiving! I am thankful for the ability to simply BE.

  8. I'm grateful for all the cyber sisters in Christ!

  9. Based on the title of your blog I have a query. Do you read Joseph Campbell? BTW, I too, love Joyce Meyer and Joel Osteen.

  10. I'm grateful that God provides, that God never abandones nor forakes, that God knows my dreams, that God has a plan for each of my sons, that God guides my husband, that God knows what tomorrow will bring so I don't have to worry but trust.

    Thanks for sharing and encouraging us to think about what we're grateful for.

    Have a blessed day!

  11. I'm grateful for a Father who always knows what His children need, even when they don't voice it.

  12. Yaya: Thank You!

    Equidae: Thank you for sharing your gratitude list with me!

  13. Joseph Campbell is all about following your bliss in fact as a teacher this quote is what he is known for. Read http://www.jcf.org/new/index.php?categoryid=31
