Not the best news

Oh man, today has been interesting. We didn't go grocery shopping on Saturday, so after some deliberation, we decided to go today, and I left my phone at home, like I usually do. We got back, put the groceries away, got the mail, checked email. We were going to get back to work, but first I had to go to the bathroom.

When I got out, Athena was on my phone with Celeste, talking about going up to be with family. I picked up my phone and saw that I'd missed two or three calls and had a voice mail. Athena checked to see if I'd heard what was said while I was in the bathroom; I had not, so I didn't know what was going on, but I kind of had a feeling I knew what it was about. Athena said, "48 hours," and that's when it all clicked.

Today I'm thankful for the good things we learned from Dad, my testimony of Jesus Christ and His atonement, getting to buy some daffodils at the store (and none too soon--one bundle is practically already in full bloom!), getting to play Splatoon with the kids, and getting to visit family soon.
