Eileen is Grateful

It is time again for a Thankful Woman's Blessings during this Advent season.  We just list five things we are thankful for during our week to share with each other.

1)  We are all very grateful that my college-going sons are coming home tonight for winter break.  My little five year old son has been counting down the days on his calendar.

2)  We are thankful that my high school daughter is on her Christmas break now.  She is home relaxing and sharing time with her younger homeschooled siblings.

3)  We are grateful for the car my mother-in-law gifted us now that she can no longer drive.  It just so happens that one of the cars we've been using is now considered a 'clunker.'   (Not worth putting money into it).

4)  I am thankful that I feel a little better today after about one whole month of feeling under the weather.  I'm still not feeling how I would like to but at least I have the energy to get out and about today.

5)  I am grateful for the publication from Hillsdale College called "Imprimis."  Today we discussed a great article in it entitled, "The Unity and Beauty of the Declaration and the Constitution" by Larry P. Arnn.  It is a free publication.


  1. Those cars really are great "gifts." So glad to hear you are feeling better. I was like that for October and most of November. ~Kristen @ St Monica's Bridge

  2. How wonderful to have everyone home! I'm glad you're feeling better. Have a blessed Christmas!

  3. Christmas break - what a blessing to have the children all home! The car - what a blessings! Hope you continue to feel better and better. Have a blessed Christmas!

  4. Wow, what a blessing to get the car! I hope you enjoy this time with all of your family together and that you have a blessed and beautiful Christmas!
