Friday's Fave Five #521
Welcome to the deep freeze, I mean Friday's Fave Five. Oh my goodness, it is still so cold out. Brrr. Time to warm up at least our hearts, if not our toes, with gratefulness and thankfulness for the blessings in our lives. Please join us as we look over the last week and take note of the God's gifts and blessings, sharing five of our favorites.
~training day~ Saturday found me at the Samaritan's Purse headquarters in Calgary, AB for a training day for the Operation Christmas Child distribution trip I'm going on. It was so exciting being there. There were lots of great sessions and teaching, I learned so much. There were lots of different teams there and I got to meet a few of my own team which is really nice. And they fed us. Super well. Oh my the Thai Food lunch? Excellent. Such an exciting day. I can't believe there is only 33 more days to go!
~girl time~ I went for this weekend with the other lady from church who is going on the trip and my friend. We went up the Friday afternoon, my friend drove which was a real blessing as she is a pro at winter and highway driving so that was one less thing to stress about. We stayed in a nice hotel and went out for a nice supper at a fun restaurant called Starbelly and did a little mall wandering. I was a good girl and didn't buy a thing. It was a nice girl time full of laughter and encouragement.
~therazinc spray~ this has been a saving grace this week, let me tell you. As soon as I have felt anything trying to come I start spraying the zinc into the back of my throat. For the most part it has warded off any cold or sniffles.
~gestures of affection~ this big boy has taken to sitting with me for a bit in the evenings. As you can see he likes to hold hands. His warm fur and soft purring are quite soothing on these cold evenings.
~my fave chocolates~ my sweet valentine, my hubby, gifted me with my favorite chocolates for valentine's day. It was a lovely thoughtful gift and I'm enjoying every single delicious bite!
What were your favorite blessings this week?
