This weekend Brad and I were able to get a short little breather. It’s amazing what some comfort food (while it’s still warm) and a couple hours away with some good reads will do to recharge your spirit. Uninterrupted conversation and riding in the car, rather than a van filled with car seats, was a welcomed retreat. Funny how holding hands can feel a little more like high school again. And how you could care less about traffic or waiting in a line, because you’re not rushed for once. And although the time passed too quickly, and responsibilities awaited us at home, we feel more empowered and energized to make it through the week.
It always amazes me how even a little taste of absence can make the heart grow fonder.
It does the heart good, doesn’t it?
(Special thanks to Brad’s parents for giving us a much needed recharge.)
