Friday's Fave Five #59

Welcome to Friday's Fave Five. So glad you all played without me last week. Feeling much better this week but it's still been a bit of a rough ride. So I'm really glad for this little exercise that allows me to purposefully find those blessings and good things which are there and bring them up to the surface. If you're new and would like to play, go here for the blurb, and then just jump on board and join us!


1. Friends who will drop everything and help you out when you need it. Boy did I appreciate my friend who I called at ten at night last Thursday to please come and take my dayhome the next day. And she did without hesitation even though she had her girls birthday that night. May she be blessed a hundred fold.


2. Bloggy awards from bloggy friends that bring encouragement and an uplifting right when one needs it. Thank you Thom and Michelle! I know I'm horribly behind in posting it but life, it's been a happening around here and I'm glad I can finally thank you for thinking of me.





3. Extra kind emergency room workers. I couldn't catch his name but he was a kind porter who offered me kleenex and a cold cloth without being asked, checked on me regularly, smiled much and sat with me when my hubby had to use the washroom. Bless those who work in hospitals who show kindness.

4. A Hubby who was yanked out of bed to take me to emerg and who sat there with me for 4 hours until 2:30 a.m. and then had to work in the morning. It would have been so much worse if he hadn't have been there.

5. Blazin' Pepper Bourbon Seasoning. Oh my goodness. You like spicy? You like sweet? A bare hint of bourbon? This stuff is good. I found it on a little end of the aisle rack at the grocery store a few weeks ago. It's a limited addition flavor so I thought I'd nab it. Yum, yum, yum. I've rubbed my roast with it, gave a little sprinkle on pork chops. It has made them happy. And my mouth happy.


So what good things were in your week? If you do a post, don't forget to sign on to Mr. Linky so we can visit you! Have a great weekend.

I hope you are feeling much much better now, Susanne! I didn't realize you had ended up in the ER. The seasoning looks great. I wonder if it would help if you rubbed some on your sore back!

Thom said...

I didn't know you ended up in the ER either. I hope you are doing well my friend. Great week and congrats on the awards :) Have a great weekend :)

Hazel said...

We're glad you're back, Susanne and feeling better. Neither did I know you ended up in the ER. Oh, it's great to have you back indeed.

Congratulations on the awards.

You have had one rough week -- but STILL, much to be thankful for! I do hope you are feeling much better now! And I hope your helpful friend is blessed one hundred fold too! But if I know OUR God, she was probably blessed that very day too!

I'm so glad to hear that you're feeling better! It was sad last Friday not to see a post from you; I knew that was bad news. How wonderful that you had so many people who came to your rescue. A great five list!

Barbara H. said...

I'm glad you're feeling better. Did you have the dayhome this week, too? I wondered how all of that was working out. It's so wonderful you had someone who could take it on short notice.

From various ones of us being in the hospital at various times, a compassionate, thoughtful worker there can be such a blessing.

What a wonderful hubby!

Congrats on the awards!

I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling better, Susanne. That must have been scary for you and your husband to have to go to the ER in the middle of the night for back pain. Bless those ER workers. They earn their pay and those that go above and beyond are saints.

Melanie @ This Ain't New York said...

So sorry to hear you've been sick. It is no fun to go to the ER. Feel better soon!

I am so glad you are starting to feel better, even if it is baby steps. And so glad that since you did have to visit the ER that you found some caring people that worked there.

Katrina @ Callapidder Days said...

That seasoning sounds like something my husband would absolutely love! So sorry about your rough week, but glad you found those bright spots!

Linda said...

What sweet blessings Susanne. We've had more than our share of hospital visits these days and kindness is so appreciated.
I hope you're feeling lots better.

Karyn said...

That seasoning sounds delish! I'll have to try remember to look for it.

I'm so glad you had such help when you were laid up! And doubly glad that you are on the mend.

People who can work in the ER and still show kindness deserve a special reward!

Hen Jen said...

so sorry to hear you were in the ER! Hope you are feeling better!

Oh, sorry I missed that you were ill. Seems lame to say I"m glad you're better now when I didn't know! Sorry.

I hope you are feeling better. Sometimes we need taking care of as much as we care for others.
Congradulations on the awards as well!!
