This is us, at 5 in the morning, with all our children safely delivered to school or grandparents:
It was cold, that’s all I’m saying.
We headed out on our date before I had to see patients, and Nathan did his work on the road:
It was a gorgeous morning for the temple, and we were so excited to be there together at the same time!
We had a lovely date, getting back in time for me to finish work and Nathan to get his projects done and for me to be home in time to make spaghetti squash for dinner.
The grandparents joined us, and I loved the company while Nathan went to symphony rehearsal. They stayed for scripture study and dessert, and then read the good night stories to the kids before prayers and hugs. Grandma brought new Valentine’s Day books for the kids!
It was a very, very long day. But it was a good and peaceful day, gorgeous in the sunshine, the kind of day that nourished my spirit with much needed soul food. There is air in my lungs, and I am breathing the sweet gift of life again. I came home to sweet babies excited to see me, work I love, and parents that are kind to me.
And I got to hold Nathan’s hand the whole time.
It was a good day.
