Friday Fave Five

Friday again! 🙂  So nice to reconnect with so many of you last week! 🙂

We started this past week of with a bang…….literally!!!!  A bang to the head.  SportTman got a concussion at the youth group barn party! He was throwing a football with friends and went back for a pass, someone came up behind him and jammed a finger in right above his eye.  Eye was fine, head was not!  SportTman and I spent 5 hours bonding together at the emergency room on Sunday night!   He still feels some of the ramifications of the nasty blow to the head, I mean eye.  It all seemed like such a bizarre way to get a concussion!  He will be out of sports for another week.

But it made my Friday Fave Five, since I am so thankful it was not worse.   Here he is enjoying a visit from Hubs and the Inventor in the ER.

I also cut loose a bit the other day….things have been a little stressful at our house as of late.  So I decided I needed to get out and play!  I actually jumped in a leaf pile with The Inventor! 🙂  I have such fond memories of jumping in the leaves as a kid, and love the smell of a leaf pile. 🙂  So I just jumped in, felt great!!! 🙂

Candles this time of year.  There is just something about  a simple Pumpkin candle lit on a fall night that brings a calmness to our house!

These vitamins!!!  I have been taking them daily for several years, and I am convinced they do give this active, busy mom the energy to get through the day!

And the prayers of ALL of you dear blogging friends!!  Means the world to my family as we walk the path of a very unexpected journey that lies ahead for us.  Many of you have sent me a note on fb or emailed me asking how to pray……THANK YOU!!! 🙂

  1. Made me smile and cry all at the same time! Your names on our our lips and in our prayers…so much. Jessica prays often. I sneek up on her an listen in sometimes and I can hear her praying for all of you. So dear! I LOVE YOU!

  2. Sandy I admire your strength… please know that you and your family are in my daily prayers!

    I love leaves too…jump away! And I finally lit my pumpkin candle last night!
    Blessings my bloggy friend!

  3. Yikes. Sorry to hear about your son’s concussion. Glad he is okay though. You look like you had fun jumping in the leaves. Good for you! Maybe I need to switch to your vitamins to give me enough energy to jump in the leaves. Ha. Still praying for you so often…

  4. whoa…that IS a strange way of getting concussion but sure am glad he’s ok!
    i LOVE jumping in leaves, too and plan on doing that this weekend once they’re raked…my “baby” of 11 still likes it, too!
    And I have lit a candle almost every afternoon or evening this week……it’s so comforting and calming!
    Happy FFF…enjoy the weekend…..

  5. Sandy, so glad to hear your son wasn’t hurt worse! I love the photos of you jumping in the leaf pile — that was one of my favorite things to do growing up. I’m praying for your family. Take care.

  6. That sounds like a painfully weird way to get a concussion. Glad to hear he is on the mend.

    Leaves are a totally relaxing thing for me too. Nothing like the crunch and smell. As are candles, as you see from my post too.

    Praying for you and your family. I don’t know the specifics but the Lord does.
