I don't mean to be cheesy in this post, and sorry, there are no pics. But I had a great day yesterday! I have to share, in hopes that you will do some of your own reflecting on the state of your contentment.

  • I woke up finally being able to walk on my mysteriously swollen knee, so the day was already starting on the right foot. (HA! I couldn't resist) 
  • The smell of different household cleaners was a sign that we were being productive, and that I won't have to use them again for a week!
  • Although my boys love to yell at me, I was happy to be able to get down and play with them again, realizing I had missed it the last 3 days.
  • I was so happy to be going out with Dan, to the temple and to get some yummy Chinese food.  (I have to say here that I was overwhelmed all day with feelings of gratitude for Dan, our friendship, our marriage, and for just knowing how strong we are together.)
  • I was able to have a wonderfully spiritual morning, on a Saturday!
  • Could the weather BE more perfect?!
I just felt so good, and still do today. I love my family and the things we do together. When a respected woman in our stake was asked how she has kept her grown family so close and happy in the gospel, she replied, "Just have fun together." 

I love that!

Always being able to have fun is one of the things that I love about you guys! I think that these moments that you described are some of the ones that we will treasure, even if they were just "Saturday" moments.
