Friday’s Fave Five (10/16/15)
“I dove into the ocean of gratitude and I never found the shore”, (Patch Adams).
I recently wrote a post about Patch Adams and the above quote is something that stuck with me. Today, I am swimming and looking for five blessings from last week.
ONE. Walking partner. A couple of months ago my daughter put up “wanted walking partner” notices around my apartment complex. Last week I got a call. Now I have a partner with a schedule and stride that match mine.
TWO. Celebrated a niece’s 14th birthday. We had the traditional waffles and ice cream for breakfast and met again for a birthday dinner (lasagna). It was awesome to celebrate Emily. She is a talented, friendly, and godly young woman.
THREE. Three laughter dates. I am on a roll. (1) I spent time in the church nursery last week. I worked hard to get some of the kiddos to smile. And when there was laughter, I felt like such a success. (2) I interviewed Lorna for my series Finding Laughter. I always laugh and laugh and laugh around her. (3) At Emily’s birthday celebration we also played Telestrations. This is like the Telephone Game played through drawing instead of talking. There was LOTS of laughter and lots of head scratching.
FOUR. Decorated a pumpkin. It only took me 15 minutes (once the pumpkin dried from being painted brown). And the other cool thing is that I already had all the supplies.
FIVE. Jog-a-thon volunteers. Last week our church was asked to help at a local elementary school’s jog-a-thon. 16 volunteers in total were there – 12 were PEPpers (age 55+). Their counting and encouragement skills were appreciated!
