Grace points

Friday Fave Five is brought to you by Susanne at Living To Tell the Story.  

Here are five ways my family has been blessed this week:

1.  My husband has a new job!

2.  My oldest son found an apartment that is close to his work AND has a nice, big backyard for his dog:)

3.  Younger son found a truck to buy.  He is one happy boy.

4.  I had the sweetest phone call from my daughter.  It left me smiling all day long.

5.  This morning I met a friend for breakfast.  We go way back, to high school days, and I only get to see her once a year or so.  We talked about the changes that come about as kids grow up and leave the nest, rediscovering ourselves, what happened to all the plans we made before life came and swept us up into even grander plans.  It was a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning, over coffee and omelets and toast with marmalade.

How was your week?

Wow, what an exciting week you've had! Congrats to your hubby on his new job!

Wonderful news for your oldest and younger sons. My girl is looking for a new place, has to be out of the one she's in by the end of the month. New owners raised her rent by 56%! I'm trying not to stress right out!

Congratulations on the job for your husband. Hope all goes well with it.
I saw your comment on Mari's blog about being in drought and out of curiosity wondered if you were from Colorado, so stopped by. We live in a small farming community in southeastern CO and are desperate for moisture.
