Welcome to Friday's Fave Five. Our little space on the internet to purposefully share 5 of our blessings from the past week and be thankful to God for them. In doing so, we hope to cultivate a nature of thankfulness so that noticing those blessings becomes easier and more natural even in difficult circumstances or times. Please join us.
~ moments of peace and quiet ~ if you are new here and don't know I have had a family dayhome for 30 years in my home. My days are filled with kids, noise and activity. So when I can notice a moment in the midst of it all and grasp a pocket of peace I try to savor it as much as possible. That moment of silence when everyone decides they want to color and are doing it peacefully at the table, that moment I get to take a few sips of hot coffee before my cup gets put down and I need to go redirect, the moment a little comes for a cuddle, well you get the idea. It is a bit of heaven in the middle of the day.
~ Barista Oat Milk ~ this fall I have been trying to cut back on my dairy because of some throat issues I have had. If you know me, you know I love my dairy, so this has been a hard thing. But I found this Barista Oat Milk that I really love to use instead of cream in my coffee. It has a nice rich, thick feel to it and the taste does not overwhelm my coffee like coconut milk products do. And when I shake it really well it give a nice foam in the coffee too. And if you are into steaming your milk for your coffee this Barista edition will not separate. Finding this has been a huge blessing for me because I don't enjoy black coffee no matter how hard I've tried to get used to it, yet love my coffee with cream.
~ face time chats with Mom ~ technology. Sometimes its a blessing and sometimes a curse but in the case of being able to "visit" with my mom in hospital it truly has been a blessing. Alberta placed more restrictions a couple of weeks ago and one of them was only one visitor allowed in hospitals and it always has to be the same person. Okay if the patient is only there a few days but going on 4 weeks with my mom it has been brutal. But my sis and I connect live on our phones and my mom and I can have a quick chat. Thankful for this technology in this case!
~ tree lights and coffee ~ I've been loving having my morning coffee sitting in the living room with just the tree lights on. It's so beautiful and peaceful. A perfect way to start the day.
~ costco money back ~ we finally decided to bite the bullet a year ago and get the credit card linked to this company and we are so glad we did. We use it all over and pay off what we put on it right away but at the end of the year we get a nice little check back to spend at the store. Helps with all those Christmas goodies!
I think Faith shared this thought on thankfulness somewhere and I loved it so much I saved it. It really does sum up what I strive for in doing Friday's Fave Five. I pray it is true in your life also.
What are 5 blessing from the last week are you thankful for?
