It’s Friday, time to look back over the blessings of the week
with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story and other friends.
This has been an odd week. It hasn’t been bad at all. We’re just plugging away at everyday life. But as I thought about the Friday’s Fave Five, my mind went blank. Usually I try to keep a running list through the week of what I want to share. This week, by Thursday, I only had one.
But … God is always good, and there are always things to be thankful for. Sometimes they are obvious; sometimes you have to spend more thought.
So here’s what I am thankful for this week:
1. Sibling provision. My brother and one sister are out of work due to the virus—my brother has been for several weeks now. Unemployment processing in his state was backed up. I just heard this week that his unemployment checks finally started coming through. My sister’s store cut hours at first and then closed a couple of weeks ago. Her employer is still paying her for now.
3. Grilled pork loin. My husband prepared this in the sou vide cooker our son made for him and then browned them on the grill.
4. Sunshine. I know I say this off and on. I know rain is necessary. But it sure brightens my spirit to have clear blue skies and sunshine. The temperatures have been crossing back and forth between cool and warm. I always enjoy this stretch of nice weather before the heat of summer kicks in.
5. My roses are exploding.
We’re continuing to find everything we need except Clorox wipes. Thankfully I had plenty on hand already, and we haven’t run out yet. We’re trying new things like boil-in-bag rice when our regular jasmine rice wasn’t available. I made way too much the first time, but now I know about how much to expect out of each bag.
What’s a blessing from your week?
