Just for fun Friday Link-up Party!
(for those of you who are worried about my sanity, I am aware that this is actually Thursday... I just fear that tomorrow I may not be getting out of bed!)
Welcome to the weekend! I hope this week has been a blessing to you. There have been some pretty major ups and downs in my life since last Friday. I spent an amazing weekend with some college friends, and then came home to the flu invading our home. I am currently the one under attack. Thankfully, germs are not contagious via Internet.
Here's a few things that have made even the flu seem a little better....
1. Sweet friends and fellowship.
2. A "restart" in the weight loss/healthy living competition that I help facilitate.
We started January 1st and have all seemed to be falling away, but this is the month we kick it in gear! I blogged my declaration of failure here, then posted my plan for April (after the flu retreats...). Love the saying "A goal without a plan is just a dream..."
3. My daughter started her first journal this week.
I bought her an inexpensive notebook and told her she could write her thoughts or anything she wanted in it. I heard her lying in bed say "I'm quite the journalist" with a sigh and her notebook on her chest. She's six, it made me smile.
4. The lead up to Easter.
The lead up to Easter is always a time of reflection for me. I usually observe Lent but this year I felt no leading to, so it's been a bit different for me. I try to spend the week reminding my children about why we observe Easter and what it all means, doing books, lessons and videos. I'm having to give myself a lot of grace this year, with this whole flu thing - it's wiped out our whole week so far. I'm just praying it goes away so we can actually GO to worship on Easter!
5. My husband
I have to give some huge thanks to my wonderful husband who took over total childcare and household duties for five days so that I could go spend sweet time with my friends. He's very glad the flu waited until I got back.
Now it's your turn! Why don't you share a post from your week with us! Link up as many as you like and make sure to back link here (steal the button if you like!) so that we can all find each other. Happy Linking!
