A week ago I was pretty down in the dumps about life and marriage. God was really revealing a lot of things to me about myself. It was good but it was hard. I was able to share those thoughts with Kevin. And we had a great weekend as a family, including a date night out. Who cares that we just went out to eat, Target, Lowes, dessert, then home. It was just the two of us, and during that time we talked about what other dates we might do. I really want to try for every two weeks if we can at all POSSIBLE squeeze some time in, even something little. I left the weekend feeling excited, excited for a growing relationship with my husband, and feeling hopeful for what's to come. Gosh, sometimes I feel like I'm bipolar cuz now this week I feel zest for life. I gave Kevin a simple card, thanking him for his hard work over the weekend and of course telling him that I love and appreciate him. And I've also got some ideas brewing for how we can better connect with other friends from church, since Kevin is often gone on Sundays. Lots of growth coming for all of us, I hope. So cheers to this new week!
