Calm After the Storm – Day 91
By Renee Bodkin
On Day 73, I wrote about being grateful for the “Calm Before the Storm”. The past couple weeks have been pretty stormy. Between Philip’s radiation treatment, organizing the Pack’s Blue & Gold dinner, and a myriad of other commitments and stressors.
So today, I am grateful for the “Calm After the Storm”.
Philip and I went out today. Just him and I. We went and bought furniture (shh, it’s a secret until it’s delivered later this week). We’ve been talking about this and planning for this and just waiting for the “right time” for what feels like forever (realistically it’s been since summer). He convinced me earlier in the week that it’s time. Now that I’m sold on it… I was so excited. Then we went to an early dinner at Applebees – we had a gift certificate from Christmas. It was nice to just sit and talk and enjoy time together without having to rush or worry about time. So grateful. Then we went to the grocery store for the food for the week. It’s been so busy my refrigerator and cupboards are empty. Such a simple thing yet I am so very grateful.
