Yesterday evening I was driving my daughter to her youth group meeting, and I opened up to her about how I’ve been feeling a bit down, uninterested, and even sometimes irritable.

A few nights ago I went outside with my husband and watched the Leonid meteor showers. We enjoyed watching together for a while and saw a few meteors.
