Eileen is Grateful

It's time to post to Judy's blog and list five things we are thankful for this week.  It is a wonderful way to contemplate on how the Lord has touched our lives.  Just click on the name to go to this great meme.

1)  I am grateful for our weekly co-op this week.  Before we left for co-op, I went up on my meds and though my PTSD was going to flair up.  I forced myself into the car to drive the children to co-op.  It turned out to be a beautiful day to have our colonial celebration together.  I'm glad I took my meds and pushed myself out the door.

2)  I am grateful for the dentist who pulled my daughter's tooth out because it wouldn't come out on its own.  He was very good with my daughter and made her relaxed while he performed the procedure.  Now my daughter's adult tooth can grow in straighter.

3)  I am thankful I was able to visit my friend on Sunday afternoon.  What a beautiful family they have and our children play so well together.

4)  I am thankful for finding out Jo Ann Fabrics is having some cake decorating classes in the summer for my daughter and her friend to take.

5)  I am grateful that our homeschool year is coming to an end.  We are phasing out some of our subjects now.  The only things we will be doing in the summer are devotions, reading, writing, and rithmetic (and possibly vocabulary).


  1. That cake decorating class sounds like the bees knees. I don't sew but I love Joan Fabrics, I should wander in there more often! So glad your daughter had a good experience with the dentist. A good dentist is worth his or her weight in gold I've come to find out! ~Kristen @ St Monica's Bridge

  2. What a great list! Very courageous of you to push yourself out the door to your co-op. That must have been hard. Hugs and God bless!

  3. God seems to be handing out lots of "dentist" blessings this week! LOL
    How strong you are to go out when you want to stay are brave, indeed.
    Is there a fee for the cake decorating classes?
    There's a Jo Ann's about 45 min. from us.
    Thanks for sharing your joyful heart with us!

  4. Love JoAnn's! I think I have some $ left on a gift card...I should head over to the one near us soon. Ditto to the above comments about getting out. I'm sure that was tough.
