84: I had a hot date tonight! We celebrated our anniversary early this year. Newsies! the broadway show came to Indy, so we had to jump at that chance to go see it. We got a babysitter to watch the kids and went out to P.F. Changs for one of the best meals I have had in a long time. Then we went to the show. It was absolutely amazing! I was blown away at the dancing and athletic ability of all those boys! It was crazy!!!
Anyway... I'm grateful so much that dates like this are possible (thanks to donating plasma and mystery shopping). And I'm grateful that our relationship is in a place that dates are fun, refreshing, relaxing and that they revitalize our relationship.
85: I'm grateful that we had a special stake meeting again. A member of the presiding bishopric was in town, and out of all the stakes he could have chosen he decided to come to our stake. I'm grateful for the impressions I got: that I need to gain a stronger testimony of the scriptures, that I need to make more of an effort to keep the Sabbath day holy, and that I need to recognize my importance as a woman of the gospel.
86: I'm so grateful for our kids relationship. Today Cambria started crying for some reason (I don't remember why) and Corbin came up and started rubbing her back and putting his head on her shoulder. It was so cute! On Saturday, Corbin started loosing it when we were getting ready to go. We had asked Cambria to be our helper and to help Corbin feel happy when we left. As soon as he started crying she went over and gave him a hug and was still holding him when we left. They have such a sweet relationship. Although it's often hard to have the kids so close in age, it's moments like this that give me hope that the way we planned (and how it worked out) was the right way.
87: I'm grateful that Jonathan is willing to take over kid duty when I have bad days.
