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.

It has been a quiet week in many ways. Here are some of the best parts:

1. A friend’s very good news. She had waited many weeks to be able to have a biopsy. Finally had it last week, and the results came back this week: no cancer! Praise the Lord!

2. A peaceful transfer of power. Whichever administration you prefer, I appreciate that we have an orderly manner for a transfer of leadership in this country. We’re so used to it, we take it for granted. But it hasn’t happened this way for much of history and still doesn’t in some countries. (Please, no commentary on one administration over another. I try to avoid politics here.)

3. A rescheduled schedule. I noticed several weeks ago that I had four appointments bunched up together in January. On one hand, it would have been nice to get them all over with at once. But I just don’t operate well with that many outside appointments so close together. I made some phone calls and rescheduled them to about one a week and have enjoyed that pacing.

4. An impromptu visit. My son and daughter-in-law have been super-busy with projects on their new house. It needed a lot of cleaning, painting, and little fixes. Then she texted me to ask if they could come over Thursday night to escape paint fumes for a while. We always enjoy visiting with them, but had a fun time with dinner and seeing pictures of what they had accomplished so far.

5. Lindt Lindor milk chocolate truffles. This is my favorite candy, and I usually receive some on special occasions. But my husband has found some at a discount store he frequents, so I have had some on hand ever since Christmas. I try to ration them out to just one or sometimes two a day–it’s too easy to just pop them in one after another! I’ve been happy to have my occasional special treat a little while longer than usual.

It’s been a cold and overcast week. I’m hoping to see sunshine and blue skies sometime soon. I just saw a plump robin on the tree outside—a reminder that spring is coming.

  1. Oh Lindor truffles are my absolute favourite chocolates too but I also have to ration myself to a couple a day. And what a relief for your friend! Have a good weekend.

  2. We could all use good news like that!

    Glad to hear Jason and Mittu’s place is coming along. Those are hectic first weeks when painting and fixing. You get to enjoy them from the safe seats 😉

  3. ooh…i love that chocolate brand and my fave is the dark choc ones. Yay for having some on hand!!

    WOW…a robin! We haven’t seen any since early november here but at least we don’t have a lot of snow this winter yet (just that one dump in Dec). I’m loving that the days are a bit longer now with daylight.

    How wonderful for your friend….good report!!

    yes… a smooth transfer of power. much needed. much to be thankful for with that.

    enjoy your weekend!

  4. So nice you could spend an evening with your son and daughter-in-law. Those Lindt truffles are sooooo good. Hope you have a good weekend. 🙂

  5. That is total optimism, seeing a robin in January as a sign of spring!! So happy to hear your friend’s good news — and about your chocolate surprise 🙂

  6. Praise God for the good health news for your friend. How wonderful that Jason and Mittu’s new home is starting to have their touch all over it. Busy times but good times. A robin in January, how nice! We heard a canary singing the other day! We’ve never heard one in winter before. I love Lindt truffles too! They have a Lindt store in Calgary and oh my, all the different flavors one can buy. I wanted the all. LOL.

  7. Oh that IS good news for your friend! I am thankful with you for that no cancer diagnosis for your friend.
    I too avoid politics and am glad things have been quiet.
    I love those requests for dinners together. It looks like we may have one coming up tomorrow…
    Have a good week!
