Our Trip to Austin

What a week it was!
Trying to get away
and into just us two
for a couple of days
and everything was trying
like hell
to stop us.
I mean we fought and cried
and made up
and nursed three sick kids
and our souls (we’d never done anything quite like this before)
in the end we tried
and still the fight from snowstorm
logjams delayed flights that almost sent us home
we made it to an evening
of sitting with no where to go
except into our hearts
into each other
and to find the love we hold so close
that sometimes we can’t even see it.
