Friday Fave Five

It's the weekly review of your favourite things as hosted by Living to Tell. Visit Susanne for more details or to link your fav's to Mr. Linky.


1) Getting Compliments: On Saturday I helped a friend move, along with several of their other friends and family. The last item to be moved was a big couch that had to be lifted to the second story and taken in the sliding door. Well, since I had no intention of lifting a couch I started playing with the movees neice and nephew (ages 5 and 3) The children's mother saw me with playing games with the kids and asked if I worked with kids. I don't work with kids so knowing that she thought I did is quite the complement to me.

2) A trip down memory lane: My mom has been cleaning out the attic this week. On my visit to her I had a look though a bunch of old "stuff", keeping what is good and throwing out the unimportant. Things like childhood books, toys, and school work. There were so many things that brought back good memories. I look forward to more of the same, as mom is creating a box for each of her kids and when she is done we'll each get to look through our own box of special memories.

3) Being asked for: Sunday at church G&L were visiting with their one-year old daughter C. Although she doesn't usually go to just anyone when she saw me she held out her arms and wanted me to hold her. She did this several times during church and the social time. I made me feel so good that she trusted me.

4) Potluck: We had a potluck/games night with my bible study and a good time was had by all. (And my cheesecake when over very well.)

5) Digital camera: My new camera is definetely a favourite new toy for me!

What a sweet fave five!

I love going through old photos, notes, etc, from when my kids were little. I have a box for each of them but still have things scattered here and there.
