All the feels.

When I sat down in front of the TV last night, I settled into the couch with my laptop by my husband and praised the heavens that somehow, miraculously, all four of our children were asleep by 9 o’clock. Because that NEVER happens.

It felt like a rare treat to actually have some time alone with my husband and work a little bit on the computer in peace. I switched on the TV, anxious for my favorite show “This Is Us” to premiere, and in the meantime, tuned in to President Obama’s farewell speech. I expected to listen with one hear while browsing Facebook, thinking it would just be some nice background noise for me.

Um, no. One does not simply sit through that speech without sobbing. And if you’re anything like me, there were plenty of tear-jerker moments throughout the whole speech.
