Welcome to the weekend, my buddies! As I start at the moment’s publication, I’m overwhelmed with thankfulness to be the place we’re in Sean’s restoration. (Backstory right here, right here, and right here.) He’s dwelling, solely utilizing supplemental oxygen at evening, and general he’s doing nice.

Within the larger image although, I’ve by no means been reminded extra of the truth that we’ve hope for a future. Whereas I grew up in a household of religion, believing in heaven and an afterlife with Christ, I do know that everybody studying this doesn’t share our beliefs. Nonetheless, that religion has gotten me by means of every day, typically every hour lately.

“Though I stroll by means of the valley of the shadow of demise, I’ll worry no evil, for you might be with me; your rod and your employees, they consolation me.” Psalm 23:4 ESV

Whereas I’ve by no means hidden the truth that I’m a Christian, it hasn’t all the time been on the forefront of my writing on the web site. And let’s be actual right here, I write about meals and sometimes our travels, so it isn’t all the time essentially the most related addition to a recipe for the perfect ever ranch dressing. I’m all the time open to sharing extra about my religion if somebody is , however it’s by no means been my factor to be preachy or to beat somebody over the top with all of it.

That mentioned, it’s been an honor to wish with you all this week as I’ve learn your emails and heard your tales. My coronary heart has ached together with a lot of you. It’s been a tough couple of years for everybody, and this 12 months has began with an additional serving to of ache for therefore many. 

If there’s something I can pray for with you this week, hit reply on this electronic mail or depart a remark to share it with me. It is going to be my privilege to affix you in prayer.

Shifting on to the deliciousness in life, right here’s what we’ve been consuming these days: all of the soups and grilled cheese sandwiches! We’ve had Lasagna Soup, Rooster Tortilla Soup, {Busy Day} Potato Soup, Inexperienced Chile Stew, and Italian Vegetable Soup already this 12 months. 

We’ve additionally had the perfect ever tomato soup, not less than 4x already. I can hardly wait to share that recipe with you, as soon as I get away my digicam once more. Oh! And my pal Gaby introduced us a terrific sausage and fennel pasta for dinner and I already requested her if she’d share the recipe. You may guess I’ll be enjoying with that one to share with you as nicely.

My FAVORITE THING this week is that this Epsom salt bubble tub. I’ve been utilizing this bubble tub for nearly three years now, ever since we moved to Ohio, and soaking within the tub at evening turned one in every of my favourite issues.

There aren’t many issues extra enjoyable than a scorching tub after a worrying day and let me inform you, I’ve by no means appreciated it greater than I’ve this month. This bubble tub smells unbelievable, feels superb, and it’s tremendous inexpensive too. That’s a triple win and I all the time have a backup bottle or two stashed within the closet.

What I’m READING / LISTENING TO: 1984 by George Orwell. We’re truly listening to Steve Parker’s dramatized audiobook on YouTube. Whereas I’ve learn the e book earlier than, this audiobook is new to me and I like to recommend it. It’s wonderful with the sound results.

What I’m WATCHING: Free Man. This was such a enjoyable and ridiculous film. Ryan Reynolds did an amazing job with it and the children and I laughed and laughed. It was a much-needed break from days spent on the hospital.

I’m fairly positive we’ve by no means watched this a lot television or this many motion pictures in our lives. Buffy, Twin Peaks, Yellowstone (I used to be assured that it mellows out after the primary few episodes, I’ll maintain you posted on that one.), Stranger Issues, and Yours, Mine, and Ours (the unique) to call a number of. Some are long-time favorites and others are new to us. 

Whereas doing our greatest to take it straightforward and never do an excessive amount of too quick, we’ve been spending quite a lot of time in entrance of screens. I can’t complain although, what’s to not love about snuggling with Sean on the sofa greater than ever earlier than?
