This morning, my husband invited me out for a walk with him. The weather was a typical beautiful New England morning in February. I posted a few photos to share with you the importance of making time... to make time with each other.
Sometimes we take each other for granted...not today. I felt like a teenage girl with him on a date before we were married & we became overwhelmed with...well life.
It was so refreshing to feel comfortable just walkin, & noticing Gods critters runnin for shelter once they heard us. I was either quietly expressing my gratitude, saying a couple of prayers, or cracking up at my husbands wit and spin on life. We werent tweaking out about what we didnt have, we were actually expressing to eachother the peace we both felt for having all we do.
Heck...we even held hands with each other!!!!
We both shared about the odds we as a couple in todays world, and especially in recovery, we have so far beaten, & prayerfully intend to beat the hell out of some more. Ronnie & I have been legally married for 11 & a half years but have been together for 18! that in of itself is a downright miracle. No siree...marriage isnt for cissies.
But I think the older we grow, the wiser we become....we pick our battles a little more carefully,we ask ourselves, how imprtant is "this" going to be in a month???....year???
I feel so blessed to have come to a place in our relationship where we worry less about things that used to make us crazy, and more about things that didnt. Does that make any sense at all? It will if youve been married for any length at time, or youre at least into your 40s.
Anyway, I just wanted to share our date with you. Im sure once the Superbowl game begins later today, our peace & quiet will be long gone...my husband isnt a quiet fan, but sure is an enthusiastic one. So Im off to prepare the buffulo wings, snacks, dips, and dinner.
