Perhaps this should be a different post, but I am associating my wonderful Sunday with Brett with the reading I did at church on Saturday evening. It was form the book of Job and our priest said the most wonderful homily. He spoke of the story of Job and related it to people living right now and struggling with the economy. So often we ask "Why Me?" when something bad happens. Job asks God this question but he does not answer. Eventually Job realized he needs to have faith in God because God has a plan. Brett and I have been struggling with talks of selling our house and ways to save money, etc. I get bogged done by what we don't have and what we want, but on Sunday I managed for an entire day, to step back and be so thankful for what I have in my life and it turned out to be the perfect day!

Sundays...it doesn't get any better than this!
Sundays are our favorite day of the week. Whether it is getting ready for a day of football, working out in the yard or just enjoying each others company, Sundays have always meant something to us. I think it has something to do with when we were living 8 hours apart and Sunday was always the last day we head before heading our separate ways. Yesterday we had the most pleasant day. We slept in a bit and then ate breakfast. One thing I love about out house is the way the morning light shines through the big window upstairs right into the dining room. It sets the perfect tone for sipping coffee and reading the paper. We lingered for a little too long and laughed at the dogs sitting our laps and in their own chairs. Brett left and went to Lowe's and I did some grocery shopping. Ironically we pulled back into the driveway at the exact same time. After working a bit around the house, we had a snack (healthy of course), and took the dogs for along walk. Everything is still melted and mess! Needless to say we ended up bathing both dogs together in the bathtub. We ate a wonderful dinner of pot roast, carrots and potatoes and finished the night doing out taxes. May sound dull, but it was one of the best days I have had in while.
