Thankfully, my husband was wise enough to know better, and for the sake of our mental and marital health, took us out to get some healthy dinner foods at this wonderful place called Cheffie's. We should have taken the food to go in our state... but we needed a date. We stuffed our faces with the most delicious salads and then got some ice cream. Driving home, we watched the sunset and held hands.

Being cooped up and sick is not romantic, so I was particularly thankful for the little outing. Few things make me as happy a just relaxing and watching the sunset hand-in-hand with my husband. That little date allowed me to step outside my sick foggy stupor and really be thankful for the many blessings in our life.
From what I hear, it's quite dreary everywhere. Are you taking the time to pause and reflect on your blessings despite the more obvious gloom?
