Today I’m thankful for a date with my wife.
Nope, it’s not today, it wasn’t yesterday, and it’s not tomorrow. It’s not until November 6. But I’m thankful for it today.
Our lives have been crazy busy – I know – I’m preaching to the choir on that one. Last night one of my friends was just making the same comment about how life is just flying by at such a crazy break neck pace and it’d be nice to slow down. Sometimes I forget if we’re coming or going or just where we’re supposed to be when and what was supposed to be done in advance. And that’s just the family stuff. Throw in the craziness of work and I am one exhausted puppy. Don’t get me wrong, it’s all fun, enjoyable, satisfying and of my own choosing – it just gets busy.
So this morning as Becky and the boys are about to head north for a wedding and I have a couple of old friends coming down for the day we’ve got another weekend of busy & fun ahead of us…
And for some reason out of the blue I thought of the date that we have set for November 6. A day for just the two of us. No work, no kids, and no plans. Just time for the two of us to kick back, relax and enjoy each other’s company. In the midst of all the craziness that sounds like a slice of heaven to me and is enough to keep me smiling through the insanity. I’m thankful for our upcoming date to recharge our batteries and enjoy some time together.
