On Fridays, I link up with a group of bloggers for Friday's Fave Five, a meme that encourages one to look for 5 highlights that happened in the past week for them. You can join in at Susanne's Living to Tell the Story.
Little splashes of joy in the midst of a gloomy rainy week:
1. Sitting in the drive-thru line at Hardees on our one sunny day this week, I noticed this bird on top of the menu board. He, along with some of his feathery friends, were singing. There's just something about bird song that makes me mindful of spring.
2. We are now a two-van family! Jim got his own van this week. No more taking me to work when he needs the car! We've let the girls have our second vehicle over the years, so it's nice to be back where we started before having kids - a two vehicle couple ... I thought of challenging him to a contest on who could keep their van the cleanest ... but I figured I would probably lose ...
3. Friends - This week I've received a card and some emails from various friends letting me know they are praying for me. It means a lot to have friends go through trials with you.
4. Quote of the week:
"Failure has been identified as the line of least persistence." Zig Ziglar
I love Zig Ziglar. He is very "quotable" and I agree with his philosophy on life.
5. Anticipation: The hubs and I are going off to a bed and breakfast for the weekend. It will be nice to get away and do nothing! Plus, I always enjoy time away from the kitchen.
