Hive Five for Friday!

With vacation behind us, it's time to get back to the high fives on Friday. I'm  going to combine the last few weeks so I don't miss anything.

1. Of course vacation deserves a high five. It was a beautiful week in Cancun. There were no agendas, no emails, and lots of sun. It was so nice to wake up and have nothing to do. Every morning, we would wake up and Adam's dad would call some chairs under an umbrella. We would eat a little breakfast, and it was the beach for the rest of the day. The resort had a wonderful pool and the Ocean felt great.

2. While on vacation, I read the book Kisses From Katie. Have you heard of it? It's an amazing story of how God uses a woman (a teenager, at that!) to do his work in Uganda. Katie Davis shares her story of how she moved to Uganda and adopted 13 girls, started Amazima Ministries (amazima means 'truth' in Lugandan). It is a truly inspiring story of adoption, faith, and God's incredible love. I highly recommend reading it.

3. The weather. I think I've talked about the weather in the last few weeks, but you guys, this is getting serious. I think, think, that the weather is finally warming up. For good. We've had days in the 50s and 60s this week. It's supposed to get a little chilly this weekend, but I can handle 40s, too. After Daylight Savings last week, it's staying light until after 7 at night. Summer is coming soon after a bitterly cold winter.

4. A classmate from high school is getting her Bachelor's degree in psychology and asked if she could interview Adam and me for one of her classes. She has to interview a couple who's been married a year and a half, and apparently we're the only people she knows! It will be fun talking with her again (we haven't talked since high school), and helping her out.

5. Adam and I are meeting with our pastor on Sunday to talk about adoption. He and his wife adopted from Ethiopia a few years ago, so we're hoping to get some insight from him. Since our church is pretty big, we don't know him very well, so we're excited to talk more with him, too.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Blessings to you!
