Friday's Favorites


Well, it's Friday which means Susanne's hosting her Friday Fave Five carnival at her site Living To Tell the Story where participants post their five favorite things of the week. For me, my favorite things about this past week would be...
1. Friday
2. Friday
3. Friday
4. Friday
5. Friday
Oh, I have other favorites too. Like a Friday morning where I did not have to get on makeup and get out the door, the only such morning this week (don't you feel sorry for me). And how especially good the coffee seems to be this particular Friday. And making myself French toast for breakfast in celebration of it being, you know, Friday.

Can you tell it's been a busy week? Well, it's May, what do I expect? Busy, yes, but there really were good things about the week. Open house in my son's classroom. A luncheon honoring volunteers at the elementary school. Getting my hair cut. New shoes. Attending a fundraiser and laughing at the lengths various members of our community will go in order to raise money for the school foundation. Sharing the gospel at the crisis pregnancy center. Finishing up Bible study and experiencing the Lord's gracious condescenion (and, who can get over it?).

But, today, this morning, I am glad for Friday, for the end to a busy week, for the opportunity to drink coffee and take a deep breath, and for a weekend (thus far) free from obligations and commitments.

Happy Friday!

  1. That's definitely something to celebrate. I treasure the days when I can just stay home. Even if there's a long list of work to be done, it's nice to be able to do that in the clothes that are uncomfortable (but that I'd never wear out of the house). Enjoy!

  6. Love that list!! We've had an extremely busy spring, too, and we're just getting to the point where things are slowing down. For the first time in a long time I have nothing scheduled for the week ahead (besides the usual everyday stuff) and it feels so good!
