It was that part of the year for preparing corporate planning reports for the next semester in my husband’s workplace. For a month, all the managers treated every day and hour as a scarce resource. He worked hard during the regular days of the week. But he never failed to be present at our mission work in the province during the weekends. He and I would leave early dawn and arrive home at around the same time the following day. Because of the workload, I caught a cold and was coughing badly for two weeks.
