Time: 10:03 p.m., Saturday evening. Listening to the kids finishing up their video game upstairs before getting ready to go to bed. I just got back from a wonderful Father-Daughter Date Night at church. Kevin took Natalie, and Dad and I went, and we had a wonderful dinner served by some of the young men from church, and then we watched Epic. It was a lot of fun. Dad and Kevin even got Natalie and I corsages.
Thankful for: My best friend. For almost seven years now, Michelle and I and our boys have gotten together every Friday afternoon. I am fully convinced that God brought her and her family over here from the coast just for me. This week, I got an e-mail on Friday morning canceling our get-together, as her oldest was sick. I responded, and mentioned that I’d been stressing out over some things this week. Within minutes, she called and suggested we meet for lunch so we could still get our weekly talk-time in. It was just what I needed, and the immediacy of her response touched my heart.

Recently finished reading: The O’Connor stories! Woo hoo! I also finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon and Still Life With Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen this week.
Listening to: The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier and The Templar Legacy by Steve Berry
Watching: Last Sunday’s movie was my pick – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. It was o much fun watching that with my kids, and enjoying them enjoying the movie. We’ve also been watching the Olympics.
What are you doing today? Are you watching the Olympics? Reading anything good?
