A lovely weekend

Love it!!! Seriously "normal" weekend... This momma had a four hour coffee date yesterday with a dear friend, we coulda say there for another five hours easy! Loves that time spent! Then came home to drag hubby out for a sushi date, then the menfolk went swimming while M and I stayed home w a movie, then an easy evening in with littles to bed and just sort of being in the house together with the bigs. Loved it! I am still weak. My body is slow and wobbly and needs lots of rest, but I am able to do stuff and I celebrate that!!!!

This morning we were able to go to church (these are not-germ-super-careful days and I feel good) and that was just awesome! Sunday morning "home" is our amazing church! It was so nice to see friends and to be seen! Then home for buns/meat/cheese lunch which I was able to make (!!!!!), and some amazing discussion with the kids about heaven based on a very interesting concept/ thought our pastor shared.

This evening was dinner at mom&dad's to celebrate Shawn's and my birthday. Thanks to Keri for the yummy desserts to accompany mom's awesome roast beef dinner! And the gifts... Well my sisters have me all decked out and spiff now with an entire new outfit!!! I'm super excited about their picks! Thanks girls!

Ahhh, home again. Amasing Rase with the bigs, heartfelt bedtime prayers done with the family, a really good weekend!

Thank you, Lord, for strength and health. Thank you for family and friends. Thank you for the blessings of community.
