It's Good To Be Alive!
I pray for the grace to accept God's will for my life instead of my own. I'm so grateful to everyone who has prayed for me and my family during this time of healing. I look forward to every day in hope of being able to do whatever God has in store for me to do. I'm currently working on finishing projects already begun. I leave you with a prayer of thanksgiving:~D
I thank You for all the favors You have given me.
I give You thanks from the bottom of my heart for
having created me; for all the joys of life, and its
sorrows too; for the home You have given me; for
the loved ones with which You have surrounded me;
for the friends I have made through life.
My Lord God, I thank you for guarding me
always, and keeping me safe; I thank you for forgiving
me so often in the Sacrament o;f Reconciliation;
for offering Yourself in the Holy Mass with all of
your infinite merits to the Father for me; for coming
to me in Holy Communion in spite of the coldness
of my welcome; for your patient waiting in the
adorable Sacrament of the altar.
My Jesus, I thank you for having lived,
suffered, and died for me. I thank you for Your love.
I thank You Lord, for preparing a place for me in
heaven, where I hope to be happy with You and to
thank You for all eternity. Amen.

That's our boy Michael talking on the phone with his Dad. Michael was so brave when he got his two bottom teeth taken out at the dentist's office. The dentist complimented him and said he wished all his patients were as good.
Well, it's been about five days since I've blogged. Most of us were sick this weekend and part of this week. Eric was home yesterday but thankfully was feeling up to going to school today.
Daniel went with a friend to their church Easter egg hunt and his friend won a new bike and then gave Daniel his old one. Sweet deal for Daniel.
Here are some of the books I've been reading or getting ready to read:
*I just love Duane "Dog" Chapman. I will watch his show every now and then. I haven't read his first book yet but intend to. He's an amazing person and a real inspiration. God is surely using him for His purpose.
*"The Survivors Club" is sooooo interesting! It's really amazing what some people can survive!
*We are going to try planting our garden this year using bags of topsoil as per the article in the April/May 2010 issue of "Mother Earth News" magazine.
*Am saying the Divine Mercy Novena. This little booklet is full of wonderful inspiration:~D So much to be thankful for!
*I've been reading "Graced and Gifted" by Kimberly Hahn. Everything she and her husband Scott Hahn is so wonderful and full of Biblical based teaching in full accord with the teachings of the Catholic church. They are two of my favorite authors.
*Then the next three are books about George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson. I can hardly wait to dig into these gems.
Well, I guess that's it for now. Am working on some preemie hat/booties and an ongoing knitted blanket that has been on the needles now for a few years that needs to get finished. I may be keeping this one. Stay tuned:~D
