Yesterday I told my husband that I had a free movie ticket that was about to expire and that I was thinking about going to use it. He said that I should. He knows how much I love to go to the movies by myself. He knows that every once in a while I just need to take a break. So he told me to go. He would take care of the kids and feed them dinner. I ran a few errands on the way into town and called on my way to the theater to make sure everyone was okay. I told him that I was feeling a little guilty. He told me I shouldn't. It helped a little. I had a nice time watching The Traveler's Wife. I laughed out loud at the previews. I drank my Diet Coke all by myself. I cried at the movie and didn't worry about who saw. I enjoyed it so much. Then on the way home, I thought about my dear husband and how well he knows me. And how much he loves me. And what a blessing he is to me every single day of my life.
