|A note from Mike to me, written on the table at date-night dinner.|
On another occasion, Kelly and his wife Corey came over and we headed to dinner and a concert (John Prine). Much to Shelby’s delight, Aunt Corey even brought over all the goodies to make Christmas cookies. Since I’m away a lot, I don’t like leaving the kids. And when I do leave them, I prefer it’s with family. I appreciate my in-laws and all the help they give us.
If I’m being totally honest here, Mike and I have had a tough few years. Really tough. And I would assume that the goodness that has settled on our world as of late is only sweeter because of the storms. I am grateful for that as well. I am finding greater appreciate for our time together, whether it’s sitting at home, getting the kids ready for school or out on a date.
I am grateful indeed.
