Five Things Friday

Can I get a drumroll puhlease....

Introducing a new series!
When I got home from school as a kid my mom inevitably ask how my day was or what I did. Like most mothers she wasn't satisfied with the standard, sullen answer of "nothing" so she instituted the five things rule and asked us each day to share five good things or five things we were grateful for that day.

The simple act of doing this made the negative parts of our day fade away. It's so easy to dwell on the yucky (and I am super guilty of this) but simply working to remember what is good or what we are grateful for can dramatically change things.

Each week I'm going to share my Five Good Things and I invite you to do the same. Write it in a blog post and link it below or write it in the comments. The following Friday I'll share mine and some of yours and hopefully we as a blogging community can help each other be grateful for the good things that are present in our life. :) Sound okay?

 This week:

 1. The husband got home safe from a five day business trip (I missed him but enjoyed sleeping diagonally on the bed.)
2. Super sunny weather, warm weather! Finally!
3. Chatting on googlele chat daily with one of my younger brothers. Honestly, it's been one of the best parts of my day.
4. Tomorrow is Friday, a dear friend's bridal shower and the promise of the weekend is ahead. :)
5. Being together with my family at my youngest brother's high school graduation.

What has been good this week? What are five things you're grateful for?

Link up!

"Here are the two best prayers I know: 'Help me, help me, help me' and 'Thank you, thank you, thank you.'" -Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies


  1. when we eat dinner in the dining room {which is usually do if the father's home in time for dinner}, we go around the table and say the best and worst part of the day, worst first so we can end with the good part of the days. :)

  2. I was too late to join in on the inlinkz button, but here's my Five Things Friday! :)
