Well that week went fast! It must have had to do with Monday being a holiday here. It just made the week zoom by. Good thing Friday's Fave Five helps me to slow it down and take note of some of the blessings along the way. Won't you join in?
~getting to see Mom~ after more than 2 1/2 months of not being able to see my Mom because of COVID restrictions at the hospital I finally got to see my Mom on the weekend. But it came with a bit of a price. She was moved to a Community Service bed in a town 30 minutes away. She'll be there until she can be placed in a supportive living place. I was so happy to see her that the drive seemed like nothing. I'm just praying there will be good weather every weekend so I can keep making the drive out for as long as she'll be there.
~valentine's day fun and comments from the kids~ Friday we had the dayhome kid's valentine's party. They were so excited and so cute throughout the day making the cutest comments "This is the best day ever!" , "This is so good, best snack ever" (nothing they haven't ever had before except I threaded it onto a kabob stick), "I love this craft!". I think they just like anything to celebrate.
~movie evening with hubby and pizza~ We usually get pizza at least once a month but this time we paired it with a movie we rented. It was just a really nice quiet evening together.
~ this song~ I've always love songs with lots of harmony. I can't sing harmony worth a darn but I sure do love listening to it. And I really like accapella and this guy does all sorts of enjoyable stuff on youtube. But this was a song he wrote himself and posted for valentine's. I thought it was so nice! Best listened to with headphones to really hear the harmonies.
~Valentine's dinner take out~ Eating out a couple times a month used to be something that Hubby and I looked forward to pre Covid. But since Covid it has been super rare. But someone had given us a gift card to one of our favorite restaurants so for Valentine's we did a takeout of our fave meals from there. In Alberta they just re-opened restaurants a couple days before (they've been closed for dine-in again since the beginning of December) with mega restrictions and we don't usually go out on big days like that anyway because we don't like the crowds. But the takeout was just as good. Grateful for the thoughtful gift cards.
What were your favorite blessings this week?
