I stared at the sky for a little while today. It was nice to have some time to be able to do that. It is one of my favorite things to do. Especially on a sunny, 75 degree day. While the rest of the country is having cold weather and snow storms, I enjoyed a beautiful blue sky.
I visited a friend today and also had a presidency meeting, then took two of the kids to run some errands. I have not taken the kids with me to run errands for quite some time. When I do take one with me it usually because they have something they need while we are out. We chatted as we drove and I wished that Max could have been with us for old time sake, and because I missed him.
In the years since the kids were too small to leave behind I have felt like it was easier to leave them home. I enjoyed my quiet trips and nobody asking for extra stuff at the store.
Today while the sky was blue and perfect, the kids were pleasant company, and I was thankful for such a special, simple day.
