I'll be honest, I'm really enjoying all of the time I get with Evangeline these days. In normal seasons I spend a full 147 of the 365 days on the road doing seminars for churches, running camp, attending meetings, or hosting events. In 2019 I spent a full 40% of the year in a foreign bed that was not my own without my pillow or stuffed animal or family nearby. As dark and foreboding as things feel right now with this sickness going around, it has really given me some much needed daughter snuggles and the space to take perspective on all of the priorities in my life. Even if this sickness is just a season, and things quickly return to what was normal, I cherish this time that I have had to get some clarity on what really matters.
