Happy Friday! That wonderful day where we take a moment to pause and intentionally look for blessings from our past week, whether our week was a good one or maybe not so much. Fostering a grateful attitude and an intentional looking for the good things in life helps us to get through the tougher times and makes for a more happy me. Please join me in this.
1. Another nice candle. I started burning a new one yesterday morning that I had bought on the same sale as last weeks fave. This one was called Sea Grass(from Bath and Body) and smells very fresh and subtle. It was also a great deal which makes me even happier.
2. First bbq of the year. Sunday was a pretty nice day so we set aside the planned after church lunch of chicken pie and made a pit stop at the grocery store after church to buy hamburger supplies. And it was so worth it. Nothing like a grilled burger, especially the first grill of the year. Yummy!
3. Movie afternoon with Mom. Mom had been sick the week before Sunday so I knew she would appreciate getting out of her house and just sitting around with us for company. So after the burger lunch we put in the movie "The Light Between Oceans". Very sad but very good, I had read the book a couple of years ago and loved it. I watched the movie a couple weeks ago with hubby but had a hunch Mom would like it and I wasn't wrong. It was nice pleasing her this way.
The little meme that I shared on Facebook and tagged my bible study ladies with. I am so thankful to be part of a group of ladies that have bonded so well and really do build each other up and care for one another.
5. Chocolate Berry Burst tea. I found this at Winner's, which is like a T.J. Maxx kind of store one day. Turned out to be a yummy buy. Gives a little taste of dessert without the sugar or calories. I've been enjoying it in the evenings when I've got a craving to routing through the cupboards for the sweet fix. Hopefully, I'll be able to find it again. That's not always the case with this type of store so I might have to go hunting online.
What were your favorite blessings from the last week?
