Eileen is Grateful

I am writing to add the things I am thankful for on a Thankful Woman's Book of Blessings this week.  Please feel free to go to Judy's blog to be part of this special meme.

I am thankful for the warm oatmeal with a small touch of light brown sugar I can have on cold mornings.  It really warms me up.

I am thankful for the Christmas ham dinner we had together.  I was able to make pea soup afterwards with the leftovers.  Unfortunately, no one else in my family will eat pea soup.  I guess that means more for me.  I really wish they would give it a try though because it is so good and very healthy.  This also warms me up.

I am thankful for the warm showers we can take in the morning to start our days, warm beds at night to cuddle under the covers, and a propane heated fireplace.  The temperature just suddenly dropped in Maryland and all these things that keep us warm I am so grateful for tonight.

I am thankful for the good friends we were able to visit during the Christmas break.  They both live on farms and have gorgeous houses.  Each house has a movie room in the basements.  My two youngest watch Toy Story III at one house with the children while I visited with their mom.  My husband watched the Maryland football game at the other house while the moms and children gathered and talked upstairs, occasionally taking a break to watch the game.

I am thankful for the good friends my children have to hang out with and have fellowship with eachother.


  1. Thanks for joining us again this week, Eileen!
    What a wonderful list of blessings you have shared! WARM showers and beds...OH YES! Thank the Lord!
    I share in your joy for the blessing of good family friends...we are so thankful for this as well!

  2. What a great list of blessings...full of warmth! We recently watched Toy Story 3 & LOVED it. I don't think I've cried that much over a movie in a long time!

    Happy New Year!

  3. Oh I love pea soup. But, I will admit that I did not when I was younger. It just looked so unappetizing. About half of my family likes it.

  4. Love your list. And love pea soup! Thanks for visiting my blog! God bless!
