1. Happy mail! Last weekend, a friend on Instagram (@justbeeing_maryjane) offered some of her unused journals to followers -- she posted pictures of the journals with a number on each one. If we saw one we liked, we were to message her ... the first one to reply would receive that particular journal. I chose one and Mary Jane messaged me when it was on the way. I expected a journal in a mailer ... wow, was it ever so much more than that.

To say that this happy mail made my day would be a huge understatement. Thanks again so much, Mary Jane!
2. Buttercup squash from a friend's garden, dropped on my porch this week. She had five extra and asked if I could use some. Not wanting to be selfish, I asked for two. (I had one on hand which I'd purchased at the supermarket.) My husband's take on this: "I would have asked for all five." We love buttercup squash -- it's our absolute favorite.

There you have this week's Friday five. I could have shared much more. It's such a blessing to see God's goodness in our lives each and every day!
