Do you ever have those days where you're more thankful for your spouse than other days? I had one of those days today. Even though Dan isn't here, I still feel his love and support all the time. He calls me every time they get a 15 minute break in between lectures, he makes sure that we read scriptures and say prayers over the phone every night, and he is always willing to listen to me whine and give me advice.
I went over to a friend's house tonight to have dinner and to say goodbye since we're leaving and it just made me realize even more how lucky I am to have a man like mine. He is so helpful with Evie and everything else around the house that it never feels like that's "mine" and working is "his", but that we're partners in everything. He is optimistic, handsome, charming, incredibly funny, and smart as all get out. How did I get so lucky? I get to see him in 6 days. I'm starting to count down the hours (almost).
