Date Night

Justin is sleeping. Jeff and I are sitting on the couch in the hospital room sharing a box of white cheddar cheezits (dinner?)

This is the first chance we’ve had for an actual conversation. We agree that when we think about what Justin is going through from his five-year-old point of view, it just breaks our hearts in half.

But then Jeff said, “This may be our only chance for a date in a long time.” A date. Sitting in a hospital beside our incredibly ill son eating cheese flavored crackers. The absurdity made me laugh.

Laughter through tears. Beautiful thing. Grace be with you, my friends.

  1. Love you both enjoy this down time as I am sure you will give Justin a hug from us if it doesn’t hurt him or tell him we are thinking and praying for him.

  2. Love this post so much. Love you both. Your boy was FANTASTIC at Capernaum tonight. He has a new special friend who took to him like a duck to water. ☺️
