Welcome to Fave Fives. It's Friday so that means we take a pause and take note of some of the blessings from this last week. It has been a very emotional week for most us so it is especially good to find some good things in our lives. Please join on in.
Miracles and heroes rising to the surface. In the midst of the tragedy of Los Vegas and the scary attack in Edmonton I have really been uplifted by the amazing stories of courage, love and selflessness that have come out of the ugliness. I understand it needs to be reported on but I sure wish news programs would focus way more on the good stuff that comes out of people rather than the constant rehashing and speculation directed towards the evil act and the person who did it. The true heroes of the tragedy deserve way more air time than the evil in my opinion.
Grace and understanding when mistakes are made. I misplaced something important this week, and by misplaced I really mean the darn item literally has pulled a Houdini and disappeared! I have given myself a tension headache in trying to find it all day and was so nervous to admit it to the person involved. They extended much understanding towards me which meant everything. I still haven't found the thing, I can't imagine what on earth I could have done with it, but I am very thankful for the mercy.
Hard working hubby who was out while it was still dark shovelling the massive amount of wet snow off our huge driveway making it safe for the arrival of the dayhome families. And then he went and shoveled my mom's huge driveway. I so appreciate him getting out there and doing that. He's a good man.
J.R.Watkins Medicated Ointment . My knee has been aching for over a month. It's been acting weird and I really need to go get it checked. But meanwhile the owner at my gym gave me a good amount of this stuff to see if it would help. And it does seem to be helping. I have to use it a few times a day but it makes it so I can get to sleep and then to be able to do my work in the day. It has helped my husband's sore and aching shoulder too. So grateful she shared with me something that helps aches and pains.
Chatter of children learning to talk. I love when kids start to talk. The way they talk and form their words and sentences is so cute and when they say my name I just melt. One of the great parts of my job.
What were some good things from your week this week?
It's Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend in Canada. I want to wish all my Canadian friends a Happy Thanksgiving filled with lots of love and friends and family.
