Happy Friday, everyone! Welcome to the place where we take a pause in our lives and busy days and look for the blessings in our lives. I can't believe it's the last Friday of June already! The days are just zipping by and I need to purposefully hit that pause button and take note of God's blessings or they just slip on by without me even taking note. Please join in as we live lives of gratefulness and thankfulness. If you are new to Friday's Fave Five please take just a minute and click on the guidelines link in sidebar and then join right on in.
~ good interview resulting in spot filled ~ I finally was able to have an interview with a family who first called just before everything was shut down. We been trying to connect since and we were finally able to have that meeting this week. They are a sweet little family with an adorable babe and they will start the Dayhome in September.
~ delicious chocolate fix ~ found these at Costco last week when I was looking for snacks without having a whackload of sugar. We're trying to cut back on carbs and sweets but we still get a craving for a desserty or chocolately type of thing. ChocXO Keto Snaps. These definitely fit what we were looking for. I love dark chocolate but some of them can tend to lean on the bitter side. These are 85% Cacao but the chocolate is really tasty and pleasant. They are super chocolately and delicious and settle that craving in a small couple of bites. And they're organic to boot.
~ visit with our son ~ we have our son visiting us this weekend. We always love when the kids come home but especially now as we haven't seen our out of town kids since Christmas. We were supposed to all be together for Easter but COVID thru a kabosh into those plans. So we are especially grateful to have him home for a few days.
~ filled gas tank ~ shoutout to my amazing hubby who always keeps my gas tank filled for me. He borrowed my car for two days as his was in the shop and he made sure he filled up my tank for me. I rarely have to go get gas myself. I'm very thankful for that. One less thing I have to worry about. And he also washed it for me. Acts of service is definitely one of my stronger love languages.
~ Father's day celebration ~ this year was very quiet in the Father's Day celebrating. Saturday we were able to see my Dad for about half an hour. We have to book a time to see him in the assisted living facility he is in because of COVID. There is only 2 of us allowed and we get all of 15 minutes to visit and it has to be outside, social distanced with masks. But they must not have had to many visits during our time because they ended up giving us over half an hour which was really nice. On Sunday, with only our youngest here we had a quiet lunch here at our house. He loves KFC and Tamara bought a big bucket. I threw together a potato salad and bought some coleslaw and he was thrilled with his father's day meal. We let him do the traditional Father's Day nap and just had a nice relaxed day.
