This weekend Marci gets to do something that she looks forward to every year: Time-Out for Women. It is essentially a women's conference sponsored by Deseret Book. She loves going and re-charging her spiritual batteries. Usually she will go with a fairly good-sized group of friends and they will all get a hotel room or two (or 3, or 4) and stay Friday night together.
This particular time around Marci is particularly happy because her best friend is coming in from Vegas to hang out with her. Alisha Brandon is here for the weekend and will be staying with us till she goes home on Sunday. I'm not sure which Marci is more excited about, going to the conference, or hanging with Alisha. I know our kids are excited to see her.
So, today I am grateful for my wife having the opportunity to go and spend some personal time doing something she enjoys and looks forward to, and I'm grateful for all of her friends that help make it such a fun experience for her.
Have fun, babe. Oppa Mormon-style!
