I sat across from my husband tonight at Magleby's and enjoyed my Blackened Chicken Linguini and some good conversation. We talked about people we care about that are struggling. A bit of helplessness, mixed with optimism, as strange as that sounds.
Later, snuggled up on the couch after dinner, Geo, #4, and I watched The Fellowship of the Ring. I have seen it before, multiple times, but when you hear truth through ears and a heart that have had new experiences, you hear it differently.

The most we can do is to do the best we can with the time we have been given.
Two truths. Two reasons to cry, just a little. And two reasons I think Gandalf is one cool wizard.
