Friday’s Fave Five (9/17/2015)
This week I watched a TED Talk given by doctor, clown, and humanitarian Patch Adams. He briefly described how he went from suicidal to emotionally thriving. Part of his answer had to do with gratitude.
He said, “I dove into the ocean of gratitude and I never found the shore.“
Right now I, too, want to dive into the ocean of gratitude. Below are bright spots from last week.
ONE. I am grateful for good sleep (most nights) and my favourite pillow.
TWO. I love working with the ministry team to the Seniors (55 year and up). We had our monthly meeting this week and boy do we laugh (besides getting a fair amount of work done).
THREE. I am part of a secret sister program at church. Those who participate pray for one woman and she doesn’t know who that is. I am.appreciative of my sister. She is thoughtful, wise, and good-natured. It is a pleasure to pray for her. And of course I am grateful to have someone praying for me. Our reveal party is Nov. 7th.
FOUR. My grand-daughter facetimed me this week. Hurray! That kind of news makes any day BRIGHT.
FIVE. I was a Bunko substitute for a friend’s group this month. . . . Delish dinner, fun ladies, easy game to play, and we donated all the winnings to a friend’s sister who lost her home in one of the fires here in Northern CA. I am grateful to be around this group of generous, inclusive ladies.
Your Turn . . . C’mon, dive into the ocean of gratitude with us Friday’s Fave Fiver’s. Link up at Living to Tell the Story or please share a highlight (or two) in the comments.
