I've decided to start doing this again, and wow what great timing. Our host at Living to Tell the Story has been doing this for 427 post and in her latest post she explains why she started doing this.
Life gets busy and that's true for all of us. I get caught up with just wanting to get things done and keep on moving forward.
So by doing this I hope it helps me in my quest to slow down, to live simply and a desire to cultivate a heart of gratitude.
So here's my Fave Five for this week:
1. Having my older daughter home in Kazakhstan.
It's been 4 months since she's been with us. The last time I saw her was last Christmas. She's lived and gone to school in London on her own while we moved back to KZ. And she's not even in a boarding school. She's grown up and she's managed to keep her head in her studies without us. I'm proud of her. She's almost done and then she'll be moving onto the next chapter of her life.
2. having all my kids under that same roof again....... even if it's not for that long.
3. Juicing. Grapefruit juice to be specific.
For over a month now I have been drinking grapefruit juice every morning. When we went to Malyasia I tried one and really liked it so I decided that when I'd get back home I would make them for myself. It's not a fad or anything like that. I like the juice I make but even more pleasing to me is that it has curbed my desire for sweet food.
And that's a positive I'll take!!
4. Spring Time.
I love seeing all the flowers popping up around the camp. It's beautiful.
5. Last one for this week. Social Media and the internet and Large Families.
It's expensive to call home (Papua New Guinea) so I'm grateful for the different social media platforms that are available to me so that I can keep in contact with my family, back at home.

Share your Fave Five with us.!
Happy Friday, Happy Weekend.
