I’m certain the Lord has been trying to reveal something to me, but,
My husband is out of town on an extended trip.
He travels frequently but I have to admit that its getting harder as the children get older.
They miss him and I can see it.
He misses them and I can hear it.
I am overwhelmed and I feel his absence.
There is no one to share the nuances of the day with.
No one home who will “get the joke” or find it so precious that our twin sons both say “constructions” instead of “instructions”,
our daughter calls polka dots “cocoa dots”
and the baby is starting to say “dada” at 1:30am.
In the midst of feeling sorry for myself, I came home to flowers
Two for me and one for our daughter—-who also had a bad day when two of her friends failed to show up for a playdate that was just for her—all little girls.
It made me feel cherished and loved.
It made me see the beauty in the day and not the “failures”.
It made me realize that my husband still courts me.
And I need to start courting him.
How do you court your husband?
Have you stopped just because you are married?
