Happy Saturday everyone.
It's been a morning of steady rain here.
One of those lazy mornings that you tend to stay in bed a little longer.
A morning that you put off getting dressed until it's almost noon.
A time of reflection, devotion, and memories.
The Mister and I had a "date night", last night.
We got out of our normal blue jean attire, and put on our "Sunday best".
We had dinner at the most expensive restaurant in town. (We live in a resort town, but we actually have a very nice restaurant for dining, when you don't want the usual resort kind of fare).
The atmosphere, and the menu was a pleasant change of venue.
When I woke up this morning, I started to think about how far the Mister, and I have come on our life's journey together.
The changes that have taken place.
The situations that have come, and gone.
The disagreements....soooooo many disagreements.
The obstacles that get in the way.
Pride that needed to be swallowed.
Learning to pick your battles.
Wondering "if it was all worth it".
And remembering......him laying on the cold tile floor next to the hospital bed after the brain tumor surgery.....all night.
How hard he squeezed my hand when the words uterine cancer came out of the doctors' mouth as we sat in the doctors office that awful day.
The day I walked into the garage, and found him crying over a situation concerning one of our daughters.
The times he reaches over in the night, gently lays his hand on my head, and prays for me.
It's true what they say, you know.......the good, far out-weighs the bad.
I just hope the Mister remembers that when he lays in bed some rainy morning thinking about me!!
