friends, today I am heavy-hearted. first thing on the news this morning was a shooting at a grocery store. talked to someone who is in terrible pain at the hands of another person. man, I just don’t get it. It’s becoming increasingly clear to me that I probably won’t ever get it-at least not in this life.
what I do know (and cling to on days like today, when it’s easy to lose hope), is that even among darkness, there are still beautiful things to be grateful for. so here are some of those things that are getting me through today:
impromptu date night with this guy. I’m so lucky.
candied bacon, which is every bit as good as it sounds and waaaay better than it looks. yummers.
for eyeballs on my ice cream, snuggles on the couch, and a hubby who wakes up early to help me prepare for the crazy weekend I have.
also, for aubree and eric, girls night, celebrating upcoming marriage.
some days suck, but being married to your best friend is awesome.
