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.

Here we are into our first week of March already and 1/6 of the way through 2020. On Fridays I like to pause and think through what I have to be thankful for, lest those blessings slip past me.

1. A Biltmore ornament. I’ve started collecting ornaments as souvenirs when we visit places. I had planned to look for one when we visited the Biltmore House and the Downton Abbey exhibit the week before, but we ended up not having time between visiting the house and the exhibit. My son and daughter-in-law stayed an extra day, and I texted them to ask if they could look for one. But it was too late. Unbeknownst to me, after they got home they looked online and ordered one for me and brought it this week. Not only was I glad to get the souvenir after all, I was touched that they would go to that effort to get it for me.

Biltmore souvenir2. Two dinners. My daughter-in-law came over and made dinner not once, but twice this week! The first time, we watched Frozen 2 together as a family. I didn’t think it was as good as the first one, but it was a fun evening.

3. Light fixed. We have some under-cabinet lights that were attached by a Velcro-like fixture. But lately they’ve been falling off, so we had to put them aside. Last week my husband attached more permanently the one I depended on most.

4. A new iPad mini cover. My old one was a thicker cover that was starting to split along the spine. I found a new one in rose gold that’s the standard iPad cover.

5. Safety. You’ve probably heard about the tornado that hit TN. That was 3 hours to the west of us. I was so sorry to hear about the devastation there. Here, we just got  severe thunderstorms through the night until our phones went off with a tornado warning around 4:30 a.m.

How was your week?

    • Oh, that’s too bad. Amazing how it’s spreading. I think the panic over it is causing more problems than it should, but hopefully all the awareness will help folks be careful.

  1. You have such a thoughtful family, Barbara. I just love to hear about your times together. And Mittu is such a blessing for the way she cooks those yummy meals for the family.

  2. LOVE the ornament, and I’m happy to borrow your daughter in law anytime! I want to see Frozen 2 sometime. I suspected I probably wouldn’t like it as much as the original. I wondered about you with the TN tornadoes. I am glad you’re safe.

  3. Anytime someone wants to cook for me, it’s a red-letter day!
    So thoughtful of your kids to get that ornament for you.
    I’m glad to hear you and your neighbors were safe.

  4. Wow that was a nice week. I am glad you were safe. My family is down in Huntingdon so they were safe but I saw a map of the tornado path and Poplar Bluff, Mo., where I lived a short while as a kid, was hit and now I have wondered about friends I had during that time. The ornament is very nice and what a great gift.

  5. I am so glad to hear that the tornado was not in your area. My heart goes out to those that were affected by that tornado. What a sweet gift from you son and daughter in law. Mittu is sure a blessing making those dinners as is your hubby doing all those little chores that pile up but make a difference.

  6. I love that ornament. Time with family always nice. So tragic about the terrible destruction and death from the tornado. Glad you are safe, God bless.

  7. So glad you weren’t in the midst of that tornado! I have two dear friends from my childhood church who live outside Nashville but they and their families are all ok, praise Jesus!

    Love the ornament and how thoughtful for your son to buy it, yay for dinners someone else makes!

  8. How sweet that your son and daughter-in-law do so much for you.
    That ornament is so cute.
    I have friends who live in Nashville and was worried until I heard they were ok. I’m glad to hear you were safe, too.

  10. So glad to hear that you are safe. As many prayed for the affected folks in TN, I’d hoped you had escaped.

    That DIL of yours is worth her weight (and probably more) in gold 🙂

I love hearing from you. I've had to turn on comment moderation. Comments will appear here after I see and approve them.
