I'm a day late and a dollar short, but didn't want to miss out on Friday's Fave 5. Because if I can't take a few minutes and write about five nice things that happened last week, well, what good am I? 1. I went to see The Secret Life of Bees with some women from my book club. We went to the 11 a.m. show and it was only $5 and it felt truly decadent to be sitting at the movies munching popcorn in the middle of the day! The movie was very well done and Dakota Fanning deserves an Oscar, IMHO. 2. I had two book discussions this week, one about The Invisible Wall and the other The Shack. Both were excellent books for discussion. If you've read The Shack, there are some excellent discussions about it on the amazon.com book site. Look for the book's page, then scroll down to the comment section. 3. The Paint Lady came to help me choose paint colors for the house, and we came up with some wonderful ideas. I can't wait to get
4. On Thursday evening I attended a dinner for our local Real Choices Pregnancy Care Center and had the privilege of listening to a woman's very brave story of how she faced an unplanned pregnancy and carried her baby to term. This is an organization that is non-political and religiously ecumenical, and with these barriers aside, they are accomplishing great things.
5. I bought a new book this week, Loving Frank by Nancy Horan.
Hope everyone had a good week! Thanks, Susanne, for hostessing;)
