A huge thank you!

I am beyond words today. Your kindness and boldness and caring is overwhelming. I thank you.
I look forward to reading through all this with Rob this weekend. I tried last night but it is difficult with kiddos needing to get put off to bed. I ended up spending over 2 hours in the bathroom. I bathed both children and dog. I was pooped out! Then I took a nice hot bath and meditated on all that you said. I am comforted by your prayers and suggestions. I also needed to hear some of the things you were so bold to share with me. It helps, knowing that I (sort of) know each of you, then to hear how boldly you walk with your man. WOW. It's like I never thought about being president until somebody went first...
Rachel, what you said, I mean you should teach a class, you are very informed and I thank you.
Sara and Carolynn thank you so much for your candidness. You women rock.
To give you an update of sorts, Rob and I are in the middle of scheduling dates. (Which is so NOT like romance the movies teach us) Part of the problem is he works a paper route from 1:30 AM-3:30AM 7 days a week and then heads off to regular work at 5:30AM m-f. So he is wiped out in the evenings. Nooners are out because his work is 45 minutes from home. As we all know, I'm not a morning person, and NO I can't just lay there...
So we are working on strategy. We have a date this Sat. I am looking forward to having the children picked up and taken for the day. YES!
Thank you dear friends for the inspiring encouragement.
