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.

There are so many sorrowful things going on in the world today. It takes intention sometimes to look for the good. Here are some of the bright spots in my week:

1. Little Caesar’s. We haven’t felt comfortable getting take-out while the pandemic is going on. Some of you know how much I love take-out, so I have missed the breaks in cooking. We decided we’d be fine with something like pizza, which isn’t touched by the makers after it’s done and put into a box. A couple of times in the past couple of weeks we’ve been out just before dinner and brought Little Caesar’s pizza home. Hit the spot.

2. Ankle feeling better. Ever since contracting transverse myelitis, my right lower leg registers pain as tingling. I had a few days where my right ankle was tingling like crazy and giving out sometimes when I put my weight on it. We decided to give it a couple of days to see if it righted itself, and it did, thankfully. I remembered later that when I had gone to my sewing machine a few days earlier, the foot pedal was too far away and in an odd position. I tried to maneuver it with my right foot. I must have wrenched my ankle somehow then without realizing it.

3. Time at my son’s house. My son and daughter-in-law invited us over for dinner last Saturday. We had a nice meal and visit and ended by eating brownies and ice cream while watching Timothy play outside.

4. Submission acceptance. A writing blog I follow has people guest post sometimes. I submitted a post, and it was accepted this week! I’ll let you know when it comes out.

5. Ladies’ Zoom Bible study. We were a bit fewer in number than usual, but we had a great time.

Bonus: These beauties are blooming:

HydrangeasWhat are some bright spots from your week?

  1. Hi Barbara – I love this post. You hydrangea are lovely. I was thinking of putting some of those in our front garden area. Sounds like you had a good week – focusing on the positive. So glad you get to spend so much time with your son and his family. Will look forward to reading your guest post on that blog. Have a good weekend!

  2. Love your hydrangeas! They make me miss our summer days on Cape Cod !

    Praise a God your anklemis feeling better and how nice to just grab a pizza and bring it home. We’ve been making our own every couple of Friday evenings. I love it veggie style with just olive oil drizzled on the crust.

    Brownies and ice cream with family sounds nice.

    Congrats on getting invited to be a guest blogger!

    Have a restful weekend.

  3. Gorgeous hydrangeas!! I’m so glad your ankle is feeling better. The past few months one shoulder has been bothering me, and the past week something happened where it was hurting pretty much ALL the time. But I’m so happy that, starting yesterday, it’s felt much better. I am attributing it to prayer 🙂 It’s so true that we don’t appreciate body parts feeling good until they don’t!

  4. It seems that you are more free now, because you could invite and visit your family and even go to a bible study (which nobody knows here) Our restaurants will open on Monday, with a lot of restrictions and rules, so that I have no appetite anymore !

  5. Oh I love hydrangeas! Yours are beautiful!
    I’m glad you can visit your son and family! That might be the best fave.
    I love meeting with my small groups, even on zoom. It’s worth the ‘hassle’.

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