Next time I harass myself with cares, I will remember the bright days I usually wake up to, the dread of commute which I do not have to experience because workplace is just a stone’s throw away, the son who has improved so much since being diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder, the beautiful places I have been to such as this field of sunflowers which took my breath away….
You will leave this place feeling like you have been blown a kiss from heaven.

Friday’s Fave Five is a meme about the week’s highlights. Host Susanne describes it as “time to take a look over our week, recall blessings great and small and pick our five favorites to share.”

I have been counting blessings more diligently than previous weeks and I realize there are so many. But these are the top 5 –
i. Helpful people. Late, rainy Tuesday night my finger scan would not register which meant I was stuck outside. I eyed the couch in frustration, resigned to endure mosquitoes and a soaked skirt until technology would change its mind on me. A co-resident who was busy on his phone and about to get into his car noticed my predicament and swiped his finger for me .
ii. Alumni who turn up and tell me “we miss you, Miss H.” One handed me a box of goodies from his trip abroad and smiled like he’s so happy to see me. I fancied a tease, “did you get an A in my class?” *grin* Alright I held that and thanked them with a smile to match theirs.
iii. Accomplishing an immigration report. It’s routine but still daunting so when it gets done and in just a few hours, it’s a relief to savor.
iv. Quote. Keep your face to the sunshine and you can not see the shadow. It’s what sunflowers do. – Hellen Keller
v. Visiting a sunflower field and gaining new friends
