Friday Five

January 15, 2010 friday five 9


I can’t even remember the last time I wrote a Friday Five! A list of 5 things in this past week that I am thankful for!!!

1. I’m so thankful that warmer temps have returned to Florida………watch, it won’t be 4 months and I’ll be whining about the heat……….someone please gently remind me.
2. I’m thankful that we managed a week of school, work, sports and most of it without incedent or argument.
3. I’m thankful for a new book I’m reading, and that the author, Barabar Delinsky, did a live web chat on her blog……what fun it was, what an opportunity to learn more about her creative process. She’s doing another on in February.
4. I’m thankful for my dad’s slow but steady recovery………..I pray daily for his health and to have him with us longer.
5. I’m thankful that I’m part of a country that is so compassionate. This week was horrible for the people of Haiti, and yet what an outpouring of love and support from the US. I hope you have each found a way to contribute to the relief efforts…………a little goes a long way.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!!!

    A lot to be thankful for…maybe I’ll end the day with a gratitude list in my journal.
    Enjoy your weekend, too!

    Wonderful list! Sending best wishes for a peaceful weekend. And some sports victories for the kiddos.

    I just can’t wait to meet you in person someday!

    Hi Anita, You sound like us New Englanders, we’re changing our tune about the weather every 15 minutes 😉 I heard Barbara Delinsky had a new book out, I’ll definitely have to check it out. Enjoyed browsing here!

    It’s so good to hear of your dad’s recovery. The older my parents get, the higher I raise the bar to old age. Right now I view the seventies as not really all that old, you know?

    As for the cold vs. heat, what a shocker this last week has been. While I’m happy about our warming temperatures, I’m not looking forward to the intense summer heat. There is nothing better during the winter than coming in and warming up…a shower…a bath…a hot drink…a favorite blanket. I love winter just because it’s so nice to warm up!
    Glad I caught your Friday 5~ It’s been a while.

    YAY for a Friday Five!!!!! (cue the marching band)

    I’m starting to think you’re back with us to stay, Anita! I sure do hope so.

    I’m most glad about your Dad. Praise God.
