The New Hutch Lunch

Yesterday was a harder day for me. The girls were throwing tantrums and the social distancing of COVID-19 was exhausting me. As 5:00 pm rolled around and Chad came downstairs from working, he kindly, but firmly, kicked me out. He told me to go do something just for me. I love him so much.

I decided to call Ryan and we ventured off together, just the two of us, for the first time in years. We didn’t do anything fancy (because remember, COVID-19). We grabbed In-N-Out and then hung out at Jaclyn’s place in Alpine. We talked, laughed, and had sibling time that we haven’t had in ages. It felt so good.

After dropping Ryan off, I braved Target. It was near closing time and there weren’t many people out. It was the best COVID-19 shopping experience I’ve had in weeks. I found things for the girl’s birthday and Easter and some crucial grocery items I haven’t found lately.

This simple night was the BEST, most rejuvenating evening I’ve had in a while. Thank you, Chad. Thank you, Heavenly Father, for being aware of what simple things would make my night. I’m incredibly grateful for the power of relationships and connection at such an uncertain and scary time as now.
