Friday Favorite Things

friday favorite things | finding joy
These are remembrance of my favorite things this past week.

This is one of the best pictures of all times--not beautiful nor dramatic, but it is the picture of a miracle.  My grandson who was severely injured Christmas Eve, was in ICU for three days, now one week later standing by his truck.

What to do with those left over pears, why make a pie!  Added lemon zest, a touch of cinnamon to the flour and sugar, yummy.


  1. That is a miracle about your grandson! wow.

  2. Wow, he's up and about already - that's wonderful! And everything is better with pie. ;)

  3. Those are some awesome things. Still can't believe your be standing there a week later. A miracle for sure!

  4. Oh My Goodness! My heart leaped when I saw that was your grandson next to his truck! Praise God!

  5. Marti, the picture of your grandson and his car IS beautiful.

    I took photos of my husband's totaled car a couple days after the accident. The car looked worse than I remembered when I went to the scene to pick him up. When I saw the car the first words I uttered were "Oh thank God." It wasn't at all the damage to the car, but I was possibly inches away from being a widow. If the impact had been a few inches closer to the door, it would have been much worse. I think of it as a photo of God's blessing. So, with that thought, I think the photo of your Grandson and his car truly is a beautiful photo!

    And I can't agree more about the pears - the pie looks wonderful!

  6. PTL!!! I am so happy to hear your grandson is well and alive. Yes, a miracle indeed.

    And I LOVE pear pie! Wished I could taste some. [o=

    I am cheering you on with cleaning and organizing. We can do it YES we can.

    Blessings and ((HUGS))

  7. How wonderful that your grandson is up and around and doing well! So happy for you!

  8. The pear pie does look tasty! Pears are my favorite fruit, though I'm not sure if I've ever had a pear pie. So glad for the miracle in your family! It's wonderful to see your grandson standing beside his truck just one week after being in ICU and everything.

  9. It's so nice to see that your g'son is doing okay after the wreck!
    I've never had a pear pie, but it looks yummy!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. So glad to know that your grandson is doing alright...PRAISE BE! I love pear pie, but it's been far too long since I had one!

  11. I am so glad to see your grandson standing by his vehicle! What a blessing and small miracle!

    That pie looks wonderful!!! xo Diana

  12. One week and he is able to stand by his truck? That is a huge miracle.
    That pear pie sounds wonderful.
    Your sunrise and sunset are so pretty.

  13. What a great list of things to be grateful for Marti. sandie
