Friday June 10, 2011 Can you name five blessings from your week? Susanne from Living to Tell the Story hosts Friday’s Fave Five each week. Click on over and see her if you’d like to join in!
Here are my favorites for this week:
1. Holding that brand new babe. I wrote about this sweet little one on Tuesday, but his little life is a definite favorite of mine this week. A grandmom with a grandson who’s states away is dangerous…I’m anxious to go hold this little guy again, already!
2. Family time. Our numbers are reduced greatly around here – gone are the days of 6 at the table! But having the college boy home is a joy, and we’ve had fun this week, the three of us, at dinner, watching television together, you name it. We like a silly summer show called America’s Got Talent and when it’s on, we sure have fun watching together.
3. Crossing items off my summer list. I finished editing a book this week (big project!) and submitted a couple more things. I love that feeling of accomplishment as I cross things off. And I love getting to some of those items that are lower on the list, that I’ve been anxious to do.
4. Pictures of Aiden. This little boy is growing so! I just had to share.
5. A quote.
“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
I’m certainly feeling this sentiment now, in the summer. Ask me in late November, and that might not be my response. But I want it to be! That’s my goal – to live in the now, to find the joy in the present.
A little bonus fave: My dear hubby brought home the most beautiful baby pink roses one day this week – just being a nice guy. I love that – and him!
Wishing you joy in your week,
