Friday's Fave Five

It's been an up-and-down week. When things are rough, I think it's the most important time to focus on my blessings. So here's my list for this week:
  1. My husband is always at the top of my list, even when I don't specifically include him on my FFF list.  He's a great dad, a fabulous husband, and a wonderful provider.  I know it's no fun to head to work when it's still dark and cold outside, but he does it every day.  I also know that it's a challenge to deal with the unpredictability of my medical condition, but he's always there for me.  Even though he can't fix everything, he is always willing to do all that he can to help.  Even when all he can do is hug me and assure me that I'm not going through this alone, he's right there to do just that.
  2. We had an especially wonderful Sunday morning.  The worship, the music, the message, the fellowship ... it was exactly what I needed to get re-centered before starting a new week.
  3. On Tuesday, a friend recommended the daily devotionals from In Touch Ministries.  On Wednesday, when I was having a difficult morning, the title was The God Who Rescues.  What perfect timing!
  4. This week we had three freezer meals and two easy-to-prepare dinners.  Real food with minimal work is a blessing!
  5. My son and I were on the stationary bikes again this week.  I was about to exercise on my own, and I had the MP3 player in my hand.  He came over and said, "I was going to ride with you ... or would you rather listen to music instead?"  That's easy to answer:  I can listen to music anytime.  We didn't take a world tour this time, but we still had fun!

  6. How sweet of your son to accompany you on the stationary bike. Exercise is easier when he have company.

    A wonderful husband is truly a gift.
