Friday Favorites

friday favorite things | finding joy

While this has been a tremendously hard week for me I have witnessed God's Goodness in the process:

Praying friends...friends who do not know me IRL.  I have total faith that they are at the Throne lifting up Sabrina and her family

Sweet encouraging words from those same friends...they have truly meant a lot to me

Seeing my church truly come together as a family

My Pastor's humble attitude...he introduced himself to my friend as "Kelli's friend from church."

Watching my children

Being OK with Caleb preferring to play his DS rather than watch the parade...he's so content

Spontaneous trips to the movies (even though I saw a terrible movie...Bad Teacher, not so good)

Cinnabon after the movie...I can only get them like twice a year because they are so bad...yet so good.

Three's Company (it's right up there with The Golden Girls for me)

Staying up after my bedtime to watch Three's Company

Being able to see fireworks from our front porch AND hear the booms

Making plans to do the same thing next year, but with snacks

My friend Lyndsey's photography...this girl has a great eye

Hearing Lyndsey's excitement as she called me to tell me that a shot she took was featured in a local magazine...I'm so excited for her

She took this shot of Jamison at the parade on Monday...I love it.

Having my favorite vacation spot featured in Rachel's post today...I adore Destin

That shot of Jamison is awesome! And I had to laugh at Caleb playing his DS with his Capri Sun hanging out of his mouth:) I know you have been having a tough week...I hope you have a nice relaxing weekend Kelli!

There is still much to be joyful and happy about in the face of such grief and sorrow. I'm so happy you were able to find it.

My prayers continue. Hugs.

I love Three's Company. And I love that you were okay with your son playing his DS--that is something I need to work on.

The blog community, people of faith are truly a gift from God!

Sarah said...

Glad you and your friend have a community to fall back on for support. I can't even imagine what she's going through...

And now you've made me want Cinnabon!

Love these photos. Especially Caleb with the drink on his chest. Haha. I'm your newest follower. Havea great weekend. :)

Becca @ R We There Yet Mom? said...

That hair is so sweet... you know I've been thinking of you and praying.
P.S. If I lived closer I would make you another Casserole of Spaghetti and Meatballs and bring it on over-

Rachel said...

Thank you so much for sharing your love of Destin with me. Your picture was gorgeous and your words totally told of how much you love it.

I think your Caleb might be a clone of mine. My Caleb would totally be playing the ds instead of watching the parade. :)

Blessings friend!
