The Little Precious Things That Make You Breathe

Saturday, November 28, 2009
It is time again for another Friday’s Fave Five hosted by Susanne at Living To Tell The Story.
She says:
It's a place to come on Friday's and think back over your week and just post about 5 favorite things from your week. It can be anything that tickled your fancy over the week. Favorite quotes, posts, happenings, scriptures, recipes, pictures, great internet finds, etc., etc.
I really like the thought of thinking back over our weekly life. It is a good way to reflect and find these hidden gems of blessings. I'm a day behind, but here is my Friday’s Fave Five for this week:
1. Being able to wake up early in the morning to begin with my daily house chores, especially when the morning looks like in the photo below. I think I have mentioned his before, but I just love to see the paintings of the sky.

2. Better health. I am so relieved that I haven't been suffering from severe sinusitis and electrolyte imbalance lately. It is difficult to breathe and get around with all my daily activities when they decide to strike on me. One of my friends has told me about dates honey, and it seems that I'm better off consuming it.

3. We received news of two upcoming weddings in our big family. Both are very special events for my sisters in law in law brothers. Okay, I admit that might be confusing. My husband has twin sisters and they both have brothers in law who will get married next month and at the beginning of next year.

4. We finally got a better Internet connection. At least it seems so right now... I'll see what happens in the upcoming days or months.

5. Last but not least, it's a national holiday here in Indonesia. It's a special time of sharing. The meat of lambs, goats, cows, and bulls are distributed to the ones in need. To all who celebrate, I hope everyone had a Happy Eid-ul Adha or a wonderful time on Thanksgiving.

This is my 8-year-old daughter's list for this week:
1. Playing with her brother (I had to chuckle on this and asked her if this was a sincere answer. Sometimes these two can be like cat and dog. LOL)
2. Riding her bike
3. Reading the BoBo magazine
4. Having family meals
5. Finding out more about her favorite books on the Internet

This is my 5-year-old son's list for this week:
1. Playing with friends
2. Drinking chocolate milk
3. Watching the movie UP.
4. Reading the BOBO Junior magazine
5. Playing (again!)

I appreciate every visit and comment, but love even more to become good friends. Have a wonderful day, everyone!

How wonderful that you share the things that your children are thankful for as well. I think we need to always teach our children to be thankful.

Glad to hear you are feeling better.

Thank you Rosidah, for dropping by.
I also appreciated the fact that you shared your children's five highlights. It helps them to focus on the positive things in life.

Honey from the local bees is a natural and effective way to fight allergies because your body gets those allergens in small amounts in the honey and you build a natural immunity.
