Friday's Fave Five




Gee the week went by so fast!  And I'm even late with this Fave Five, but 'm not going to let that deter me from sharing with you all my fave five for this busy week.

1.  A Calm River View.
It's been a crazy kind of week for me.  A busy one too.  Hubby and I were busy preparing an 'Amazing Race' for the middle school kids here in our small school.

There's a lot of work involved.  From thinking up the challenges, going through the logistics of the race and then collecting everything we need for the race.  Let's just say I'm thankful it's Sunday!  The race was yesterday and the kids had so much fun.  And seeing that is rewarding.
And as for the calm river view from my bedroom window, well it was a great place to sit for a couple of minutes just soaking it in and then getting back to work - refocused.



2.  Receiving that word........
I've subscribed to this website as I suspect many of you are probably familiar with.  Anyway what she shared on 1 Real Cure for Burnout.....well that message was for me and I read it just at the right time. Don't you just love that...receiving an encouraging word just when you need it.
It's time for me to remember that there in only One Person I need to be concerned about.

3. Words of encouragement
Last week one of my faves was social media platforms and well this week it was there for me.  In the way of a friend sending me an encouraging message through messenger from the other side of the world.  It was very thoughtful of her.

4.  Music
Most days I'm home alone for a good part of the day.  And music is my companion.  Whatever my mood - there is a music genre for that!    And I love it!

5.  House help.
I'm so thankful that I can have help in the house. As I said this has been a busy week for me so to have Asem help me stay on top of those daily chores is a blessing.

Hope you all had a great week too.  looking forward to visiting your blogs.

I remember having house help in RI. It was truly a blessing especially since I had fewer conveniences. I'm glad you have Asem to help you.

That amazing race sounds like great fun for the kids! I'm glad it went well.

And yes, encouraging words from across the world are wonderful!
