Hello and welcome to Friday's Fave Five. Every Friday we take a few moments out of our everyday lives to intentionally become aware of the blessings God send our way. Then we take time to be grateful for them. What are some blessings you've had this week? They don't have to be big and obvious, though they very well might be. But mostly they are little everyday things that God sends our way to uplift us and let us know He has a hand in our day. Are we willing to humble ourselves and notice them, recognize them for the gifts they are and thank Him for them? I hope so. I know it takes determination some weeks to find them. Not every day or every week is easy. Sometimes those blessings are buried in the chaos, busyness and/or pain of living life here on earth. Sometimes we'll have great weeks where we can pick and choose which five to share and other weeks we are going to have to rely on the discipline of keeping our eyes open for them. Please join us as we share this week!
~ movie: A Million Miles Away ~ I've always been drawn to movies about the space missions and the people who worked to accomplish all that they have done and when this came into our feed on prime we watched it on the weekend. Such a good movie based on the true story of Jose Hernandez, the first Mexican from a migrant farm worker family who had a dream since childhood of becoming an astronaut and realizing that dream to fly as a mission specialist aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery. It's a story of family, dreams, hope, sacrifice, tenacity and hard work. I loved so much about it and yes, yes I did cry. Great inspirational movie if you've got Prime
~ re-watching an all time favorite movie ~ well the above movie kicked off the desire to re-watch one of my all time favorite movies: Apollo 13. I just love the whole story about Apollo 13, have read the book "Lost Moon", which the movie was based on. And yes, I did cry in this one too even though I've seen this movie probably a dozen times.
~ coffee stop ~ when touring the show homes part of the tradition is picking up a coffee to take along in the car with us. This year I tried something different and went with a Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew skipping the vanilla syrup. I thought it was really good and it's fun to try something I haven't had before.
~ finding old physio notes ~ last year I had gone to physio for an issue with my arm. Well the problem has started creeping back and I was hoping I hadn't thrown out the detailed exercise instructions that the therapist had given me in one of my decluttering frenzies. Without too much trouble I located them and it's a blessing I did as I realized when looking through them there were quite a few I didn't remember.
What were your favorite blessings of last week?
