What a week! On the heels of Father’s Day, our son Andrew had another surgery this week, and our team is making us proud in the NBA finals. And what is this about telescopes? Hang on for a great quote in my last favorite.
Linking up with Susanne for Friday’s Fave Five today. Come on over and join us.
My five favorites this week:
1. Celebrating Father’s Day. So proud of my husband – especially this year, as he has been the very picture of selfless and unconditional love. He’s just the best. And celebrating with two boys home was great.
2. An incredible surgeon. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Andrew’s doctor. He took so much time and care with Andrew this week. And what a great job he did. We’re so thankful for him.
3. Our Miami Heat—NBA champions! What an exciting last game! It was fun to see the boys watch this series with their dad and text the other two brothers during the games.
4. Free Kindle books. I know I’ve said this before, but I do love a real ink and paper book. They’ll always be my preference. But my Kindle has been great to have. This week I ran out the door without my huge Rutherfurd book and when I realized, I was so disconcerted. Then I saw my Kindle in my purse and I knew I would not be truly bookless! It helped me pass hours at the hospital.
5. This quote:
“Tears are often the telescope by which men see far into heaven.” (Henry Ward Beecher)
This week has been a little difficult. Andrew’s surgery was successful and will make things easier…eventually. Right now, the pain is pretty challenging. Things he could do before the surgery seem difficult now, and that can be disheartening. But I tried to remind him that this is just a minor step back before a big leap. Physical therapy will help, but it will be constant and intense. So you can see why I reference those tears—a telescope that helps us see into heaven. I’m a sucker for an encouraging quote.
Hoping you see far this week,
