Friday’s Fave Five

It’s Friday, time to look back over the blessings of the week with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story and other friends.

We’re halfway through May already. It has been a good month so far. Here are some of the highlights of the last week:

1. New flowers. Usually my husband gets new hanging baskets and sometimes new plants for some of the other planters in conjunction with Mother’s Day.  This year he proposed that we choose them together, so Saturday morning we went plant-shopping and then spent the rest of the morning putting them in their respective places.




2. Mother’s Day. My family always does a wonderful job making me feel special on Mother’s Day. Jim grilled teriyaki chicken, I think everyone pitched in making the cheesy potatoes, salad, and rolls, and Mittu made chocolate pretzel pie.




My hair is a little wonky – we had been outside and I didn’t know it had gotten windblown.

3. Ladies group. This was actually from almost two weeks ago, but I forgot to mention it. The ladies from our church met to discuss the first five psalms, not in a formal Bible study, but just sharing what we learned. It has been a long time since I have been able to participate regularly in any kind of church ladies’ Bible study or discussion due to scheduling conflicts. This is only my second time to attend here, but I enjoyed it very much.

4. Jim washed my car. This was also from a couple of weeks ago. My car has some pieces on the outside which my husband doesn’t think would fare well in a commercial car wash. So he washed it himself, and it looks so much better.

5. Abiding Radio. I had this on my computer at one time, but I never listen to music while on the computer, so I forgot about it. Then recently someone mentioned their app – since the advent of smart phones, it hadn’t occurred to me to see if they had an app. I’ve enjoyed listening to it a few times.

Bonus: My roses are still doing nicely, in spite of me.


I thought these looked especially pretty after I watered plants one morning.


Happy Friday!

  1. I enjoyed reading all of your blessings, Barbara. I enjoyed the pictures from Mother’s Day so much. Your family is so sweet and I know that is no accident. It has to do with the way they were raised. Timothy is really growing up quickly. Love the picture of you, Timothy and his sweet mama. Glad you had a wonderful day. Your flowers are gorgeous…and those roses! Oh, my! They are just beautiful.

  2. Your flowers look lovely and great family photos (your hair doesn’t look “wonky” to me!) Always nice to be appreciated. Have a good weekend.

  3. Your Mother’s Day celebration was definitely a fave. It sounds like you had a wonderful time.
    Your hubby knows what you like–flowers 🙂 By the way, I love your brick exterior!
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Oh Barbara I just LOVE all those flowers!! They’re so pretty!!! And they look great alllined up like that!

    Your Mother’s Day dinner sounds heavenly and all the photos look great!!

    Yay for getting together with other ladies and discussing our precious Lord’s Words.

    What a nice hubby to wash your car for you!!

    We are having a very cool and rainy weekend here in eastern NY so i am enjoying getting caught up on home projects. I hope you weekend is going well.

  5. Your Mother’s Day meal sounds yummy. That pie, especially, appeals to me. Sounds like a perfect combination of salty and sweet. What a lovely photo of you with your sons. Your hair doesn’t look wonky at all.

    Clean cars and beautiful flowers are always a joy. As is discussing God’s Word with other believers.

    Lovely fave five!!
