Friday's Fave #291
Welcome to Friday's Fave Five. Time to take a pause in our busy lives and ponder and be thankful for the good things that came our way during the last week. Please join in with us.
1. A great reaction to a gift you gave. A surprise for my friend was met with happy squeals, big hugs and a lovely text follow up. Was so worth it listening to my heart about it. I love to give gifts and see the reaction when it is just right.
2. The smell after a storm. A thunder storm just rolled through here and left the most lovely smell. So clean and fresh and now the air is cool and breezy and cooling the house off.
3. Celebrating another birthday with my Mom. I am so grateful I got to celebrate another of my Mom's birthdays with her. She is now in her 80's and every year is precious. She is still able be out and about and it is so nice to take her out for dinner and surround her with her family. A dinner at her favorite Chinese food restaurant and some beautiful roses for a beautiful lady rounded out her day.
Coconut Macaroon Cheesecake from a favorite restaurant. Oreo crust, housemade macaroon, coconut cheesecake, vanilla custard, chocolate, toasted coconut and whipped cream. Are you drooling yet? I sure am. It was totally decadent and delicious! And was a treat brought over by a friend.
5. Church picnic. It's a special time of food and fun and getting to know people from the congregation. So many new people and it's nice to get to chat with them in a fun setting. And a bonus, I don't have to cook lunch after church.
What were your favorite blessings this week?
