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. Then my husband went inside and I reclined on the swing, all wrapped up in my king-size Microplush blanket that I got on end-of-season clearance a few… Read More Day 244- Thankful for meteor showers and the joys of finding God
