This week flew by fast. There were some life challenges that I managed to overcome each day this week, but through the process of active positive thinking and it should go without saying, prayer, I found time at the end of each day to discover things that made each day special.
Here are the five things I give a high five to this week.
1. Song I enjoyed listening to the most: “Everybody Praise the Lord,” by Lincoln Brewster.
Music is always going to be part of my high fives...
If you have never heard this song, get ready to hear the most “rocking” Christian song ever. It will have you wanting to get up out of your seat and dance.
Everybody praise the Lord
Everybody praise the Lord
2. The best thing about being a mom: My children are amazing people.
When I first became a parent, I wondered if my parenting skills were good enough to raise little humans to function well in the world. Years later, my little humans are all grown up and active contributors to society. I'm blessed! I have children who are the most extraordinary people I know. They are beautiful inside and out. They are thoughtful, caring, loving, and so much more. I am blessed… very blessed to have them in my life. That’s worth "in the sky" high fives!
4. What I am watching on TV these days: "Alaska the Last Frontier."
When I first started watching this show, I wondered why in the world people would want to go to the bathroom in an outhouse. Why would people not want running water? Part of me realizes it is a reality TV show and these people get paid to show us how it is to live in the wilderness, fending for themselves. But, after a few episodes, I found it extremely fascinating to see how they grow their own food and make their own remedies. Through watching the show, I learned that Cottonwood Buds are great for making an antiseptic skin ointment. I learned how to make my own soap. I learned how to store food for the winter. Now, when I watch an episode, I watch to see what I can learn from it. It’s not just a TV show to me anymore; it’s a learning experience.
5. Funniest commercial I saw: State Farm Aaron Rodgers Commercial 2015.
I normally fast forward through commercials, but this one caught my eye. In fact, this commercial was so funny I replayed it to get another laugh. It's about a referee faking the call.
If you like funny referee jokes, you’ll get a kick out of some of the other referee commercials. Subway and Budweiser also have funny referee commercials. You can find them on YouTube. Just type any number of queries – (funny, referee, commercial, Subway, Budweiser). Their commercials are hilarious!
That's it, friends!
Thank you for reading about my high fives for the week. Hopefully, you are encouraged to take time each day to see that, in spite of anything that is going on, your life is truly wonderful.
Next week, I'm going in for surgery again and I already know that I will be out of commission for a while. The best thing I can do to speed up recovery is to take complete rest and relaxation. I will be off my computer for a while, but I will be thinking of all my family and friends. You mean a lot to me. I pray for you every day.
I pray that you have lots of love and many blessings.
You need not worry about anything in life.
Trust that Your Father in heaven will take good care of you.
