Last week was rough, but all is well.
Nick and I got up early this morning (on a Saturday 8AM is very early) We went to the local farmer's market to buy lovely veggies, fresh bread, meat and the best butter (you have to get there early or the good stuff is gone) then ran a couple other errands.
Back home at about noon, we were all peacefully enjoying the day - Nick on his laptop, Deven out adventuring on his skateboard, Emma and Christa reading, Ethan playing his computer games.
I was reading a church magazine filled with pictures of Temples.
"We should go to the Temple today."
I said, expecting Nick to say no, not today, too far, other things to do...but to my surprise he said, "OK. Let's go."
So we did!
It was beautiful and peaceful and just what I needed.
PS - Thanks for the encouragement, Denny. It means a lot :)
