Welcome to Friday's Fave Fives, where thankfulness takes the forefront. Please join us as we look for blessings and good things from the past week and share 5 of them.
~Extra day off~ Because Remembrance Day fell of Saturday this year I got Monday off in leiu of. It was really nice to have that extra day of rest. A little sleeping in, a little extra reading and computer time, an extra chore or two done. Was a great day.
~Painful tooth gone~ While this may not seem like the best of blessings, when one has basically had an ongoing tooth ache for about a year and a half to two years (even after an expensive root canal!), it is so nice to finally be pain free. I tried a new dentist and found her to be really kind and compassionate which was awesome.
~Caring friends ~ I've had a few friends check on me to make sure everything went okay with the dental appointment. Such a small thing, these texts and calls were, but they sure did make my day and made me feel cared for. I pray I am that way for other people too.
~Dentist ordered milkshake for supper~ Gotta love when the dentist's aftercare instructions are to have only warm broths, ice cream and milkshakes (no straws allowed!) on the first day. Like my daughter said, when the doctor orders it becomes void of calories! LOL.
~New dayhome family signed on~ It's been a stressful 4 months trying to replace 4 of 6 child care spots in my dayhome. Children leaving all within a month of each other for school, parent transfers, parents staying home and pregnant mommas really put a hole into the numbers. But a couple wonderful families have signed on one to start December and one January so it's a nice staggered start. Whew. Only one more spot to fill.
What have been your favorite blessings this week?
