Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Our Weekend Away

Let's see. Daddy and I made it home yesterday afternoon after a wonderful weekend. We had such a great time in Des moines. We left on Friday at about noon and started with lunch at our favorite Chinese restaurant in town. Then we were off on our weekend with no kids. I love my kids so very much but sometimes it is nice when mommy and daddy can get away. We figured we hadn't been away since April of 2006 so this was a much needed weekend. I had such a great time and felt like I was laughing all weekend. The first night we were back in the hotel at 9:30 and lights were out by 10:30 , I think we are getting old. The next day was filled with shopping and a movie and a wonderful dinner at a little Italian restaurant that hubby had delivered to before. We had a wonderful evening and I was beginning to miss the children but didn't focus on that and just focused on enjoying my hubby. Sunday morning we got up and headed home. Had a great afternoon playing games with the children. I really needed this weekend.

Sounds like it was a good time of refreshment and relaxation! I know what you mean about missing the children though. Some days you just want to get away from it all but when you do, you miss "life" terribly! So glad you had this opportunity! Blessings!
