P is for…

Count your blessings, name them one by one…

I’m using Thursday posts to focus on thankfulness — and instead of counting blessings, I’m challenging myself to come up with them alphabetically.  (You can find the rest of the posts in this series here.)

Welcome to P week!

A PARTY for EB's 3rd birthday, with a Gordon cake

a PARTY for EB’s 3rd birthday, with a Gordon cake

P is for Party! Since our family is split between two towns (with 3 kids at the college 90 minutes away and the rest of us here) we are having a joint birthday party for EB and SuperDad on Saturday. I’m grateful that my oldest 2 boys (and daughter-in-law) have chosen to attend a university so close to home (in a town that begins with the letter P) so that we can actually see them for important occasions. This party will look a lot like going out to lunch. However, I might bring along some cupcakes and/or pieor perhaps individual pies disguised as little tarts. I haven’t decided yet.   There will be presents (at least for EB… I haven’t yet come up with one for my dh) and the surprise addition of SuperDad’s parents who are meeting us there.

I just realized this won’t be a surprise if my dh reads this blog. Pfffft !!

P is also for Pajamas, Piñatas, PoetryPatterns (I’d be lost without them, especially when it comes to quilting!) and bread-and-butter Pickles. I spend countless hours perusing my pictures; thank God for digital photography!


Now it’s your turn to pick a few favorite blessings that begin with the letter P….
Please name them in your comments. 

PS: If you see ads here on my blog, they have nothing to do with me or this post. WordPress would like me to upgrade to ad-free $tatu$ but I plan on ignoring that plea. I may be low-budget but did you notice how well I worked in the P-words there? 😉
