Friday favorites

This week went by in a blink of the eye!

A few favorites which come to my mind immediately. . .

  • A warm smile from a complete stranger as I was running errands in the car.

"Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing."

-Mother Teresa of Calcutta

  • A  welcome full night's sleep from a daughter who has been sooo uncomfortable from the chicken pox.  I think the brown malt vinegar baths (1/2 c to lukewarm bathwater), which I read would lessen the irritation and help heal the lesions, did help her.


  • The warmth of the sunshine and the kids playing on the swings.


  • Reconnecting with an old friend and knowing now how to pray for her family and the challenges they are currently facing.


  • A new geography website the kids have loved this week.  The fourth graders are learning their states and capitals.  They love the competition and even my second grader scored 100% by the end of the week.  Check it out HERE.


  • A new quick lunch favorite everyone enjoyed and the older ones can make themselves:   Whole wheat English muffin (toasted), topped with pizza sauce, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese and mushrooms.  Bake at 425 until cheese is melted.


Hope you had a few favorites this week too!

Happy Friday,
