Friday Favorite Fives

Happy 1st day of Spring everyone! What a great day to have on a Friday heading into the weekend :) 

Well, today is the day that I have been writing about my favorite five things of the week. Thank you to all my encouraging readers that send me notes and continue to support my ramblings and writings. I am so glad that some of you have picked up on this idea of looking at your blessings in life as opposed to what is wrong or missing. It definitely makes a difference for me and I hope that it does for you as well :) 
Favorite fives from this week;
  • a good restful night of sleep! Anyone who knows me can attest that sleep doesn't come easily to me. Since we started watching what we eat and I started getting some exercise, sleep is starting to come much more easily to me now.
  • a good haircut! For Spring, I went a little shorter more angled and had a great time being pampered by one of my best friends who happens to be my hairdresser :)
  • homeschooling my kids! St. Patricks Day this year was one of the best days that I have had with them in a while. Definitely one to go in the memory book of their school portfolio
  • Pandora on line radio! I can listen to the music I chose all day long without commercial interruption! 
  • Loving and gentle reminders that even though I have just a few actual, blood related family members who even show any interest in my kids and my family at all, God knew all about it and keeps bringing in just the right people into our lives to help fill voids and make us all feel loved just the same. God is good and His timing is perfect as usual!
I hope that your weekend is beautiful and wonderful and that something makes you stop even if just for a moment and appreciate all that is around you.
