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.

Somehow we’re halfway through June already. Whatever happened to the lazy days of summer? At any rate, I  welcome the opportunity to reflect on and recount the blessings of the past week lest I forget them completely.

1. Lunch with my son, daughter-in-law, and grandson. They invited us for lunch on Saturday. Really enjoyed tostadas and churros, and it was fun to see what was new and play with Timothy in his room.

2. A church potluck lunch after the Sunday morning service. Good food and fellowship.

3. An impromptu family get-together.  We had some leftovers from the potluck, so we invited my son, daughter-in-law, and grandson over to help us work on them. Then my oldest son Facetimed, so we all got to talk a bit.

4. A free haircut. The place I go gives out these cards that you have initialed each time you get a haircut, and the 10th one is free. I forget to get it initialed most of the time, but thankfully my stylist reminds me. This week my 10th cut came up, so I got it free!


5. Return of our favorite bath aide. Last week our regular bath aide for my mother-in-law was assigned to another area due to one aide being on vacation and another out sick. We had two different substitutes, so the timing was different, and neither of them brought the supplies that our usual aide does. I wasn’t sure if things would be back to normal or not this week, and I was so glad to see the regular lady. I don’t know why they don’t send the substitutes where they send her instead of rearranging so many, but I am sure it’s a complicated business to cover all the bases.

I could add so many more – air conditioning on hot days, root beer floats, good books, music, to name a few. There are good things about every day if we stop to consider them.

Happy Friday!

    These are the things that matter most in life.

  2. Church potlucks – and the leftovers – are always so fun!! We had a watermelon social after our Wednesday night session this week, and that was nice also. And very little work!!

  3. Amen to your last comment about there are so many blessings each day if we just stop and look for them. Loved hearing about your church potluck on Sunday. We had our annual church picnic on Sunday evening and it was so enjoyable. I LOVE it that you played with Timothy in his room. 🙂 That brings back memories of long ago.

  4. Isn’t it amazing how many of our favorite moments revolve around meals?! Truly, the kitchen is the center of family life!

    A free haircut is lovely. How nice that your salon does that. Wish mine did.

    Ah, a rootbeer float sounds divine. I’m not much of a soda drinker, but I do enjoy rootbeear floats.

    Thanks so much for popping by my Fave Five.

    Happy weekend to you,

  6. Mmmmm, root beer floats…I haven’t one of those in many a year! I used to love them! I may just have to indulge. Sometimes the impromptu family get togethers are the most fun. We have a church picnic coming up that I’m looking forward to. Yay for a free haircut.
