Thankful Thursday

Jumping on the bandwagon with other bloggers for Thankful Thursday posts.

Here we go:

1. A parish that gives me plenty of opportunity to deepen my faith.

2. Jesus and His Divine Mercy.

3. A husband that works a long day, has a long commute, and comes home and says, "What can I do?"

4. Wonderful friendships with some really great women.

5. A new love of my blender, a smoothie recipe with spinach, and my kids actually eating it! (recipe below)

6. A washing machine that is working overtime these days and is holding steady. (I'm knocking on wood right now.)

7. A walk with an adorable 3 year old on a perfect sunny day.

8. A fenced-in back yard.

9. Afternoon cat-naps. ( sshhh, don't tell)

10. And as always....nothing heavy weighing on my mind. (knocking on wood again)

 Smoothie Recipe
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup spinach
1 banana
1 cup frozen mixed berries (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries)
honey (optional)

Add juice and spinach to blender and blend well.  Add banana and frozen fruit and blend together.

To quote Matthew: "Mmmm, yummy-licious"


  1. Does that spinach really get chopped enough? I don't think we have a good enough blender to do that.

    Sounds great though!!

    Great thankfuls...

  2. Beautiful list! I'll have to check out this smoothie recipe.

  3. The smoothie recipe sounds really yummy and I like how you incorporate the spinach in there! :-) I'll have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Visiting you from jamies bloggy. Your family is super cute...and super healthy!
