Friday’s Fave Five

On Fridays I like to pause for a few moments with Susanne and friends
to reflect on some of the blessings of the week.

I was just telling my husband last night that this is one of the busiest weeks of the year for me. I’m grateful to God that it’s going well, even with some extra issues. Here are a few highlights.

1. Your kind comments on my post about being in the hospital last week. One of the blessings I didn’t foresee in starting a blog was the friendships that would come through it. Thank you so much for your care and prayers

2. Negative COVID tests. Our last morning in the hospital, one nurse talked about how she has been isolating from her grandkids since March since she works with COVID patients. She mentioned just having worked on the COVID floor the day before. Then she kept pulling her mask down as she was talking! All the incidences of her mask being down didn’t add up to more than a few minutes. But, still, there was some possibility of her passing COVID along. We were able to get the rapid test through my husband’s job.

3. Plans given a GO. Normally with possible COVID exposure, we’d just wait a couple of weeks and see what developed. But my oldest son was scheduled to come in by train this weekend, as he did this summer. We’d have to cancel those plans if we tested positive. So I was thankful not only that we were able to get the rapid test before his trip, but also that the current CDC guidelines said our need to quarantine would be up in time.

4. Our son and daughter-in-law closing on their house is supposed to happen today. I’m excited for them.

5. Naan pizza. Susan had mentioned using naan bread as a base for pizza. I had some in the freezer and gave it a try last night. The naan bread made a great crust, and the whole meal was quick and easy—a blessing on a busy day.

I’m guessing there won’t be an FFF next week due to Christmas, so that means this is the last one of the year. I still have a few other posts planned for next week, but for those of you only here for FFF, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas remembering the greatest gift, our Savior.

  1. “Thanks be unto God for His Gift, [precious] beyond telling [His indescribable, inexpressible, free Gift]! 2 Corinthians 9:15. Blessed Christmas to you and yours Barbara. May your family time be special with everyone together. Thankful for your blog.

  2. Oh, Barbara, I didn’t realize you had been in the hospital. Sending prayers your way! Congratulations on the new house for you son and DIL. Have a merry Christmas week!

  3. I’m so glad your covid tests were negative!! GLory to God! Enjoy the time with your son.

    Congratulations to your son and DiL on the new house!! How exciting!

    I prayed for you and am happy/thankful you are doing ok!

    I think I’ll write a FFF at some point before the XMAS eve service and set it to post automatically on Christmas morning.

    Meanwhile: HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!!

  4. Covid testing is so strange. People will feel sick, test, and be negative. Others aren’t sick, test, and are positive. Crazy, crazy times … So happy for your son and DIL on their house! And happy you enjoyed naan pizza. We do too 🙂

  5. So glad you are home and doing better. Hope you stay well and have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  6. so thrilled you are back home and that you had a negative COVID test! can’t believe a nurse was pulling down her mask as she was speaking to you!!!

  7. I’m glad you got a negative Covid test. I’ve seen so many at the grocery stores this week with masks pulled down. I don’t understand why they wear one at all if they’re not going to wear it properly. 😦 Hope you enjoy the visit with your son and congrats to your other son on the house closing!

  8. I missed your post about being in the hospital again. I’m glad you are out and ok now.
    Covid is definitely affecting us all in our plans and habits. So relieved you tested negative and your son can come visit.
    I don’t want to miss congratulating your son and dil on their home purchase! YAY!
    Happy Weekend and Merry Christmas!

  9. So glad you are out of the hospital and doing ok. That is really odd about that nurse, of all people you’d think she would know better than to do that. Glad you got a rapid test and that your son can still come for Christmas. How fun that your son and DIL will have a new home!
