I love you, honey

If you've read this you know that time has changed the romantic notions I once had about marriage. Some things we've been through are too private and painful to tell, and definitely too personal to share on a blog. But I'm learning so much about what God can do in a relationship. I don't know why it should surprise me. When He created the world, He made something from nothing. Of course he can do things in my marriage that I never thought possible!

So one tiny thing that He has done is make us miss each other. Dan has been gone 9 days, and I miss him so much. I want him home! As a military wife, I get in the habit of just knowing I have to make it through, but these 9 days have felt like an eternity. I'm feeling like a school girl again because my hubby wrote me today telling me the same thing. It's felt like an eternity to him as well, and all he wants is to be home! He dug out this picture (that I didn't even know he had) to remind me of a night long ago when we were just happy-go-lucky single people falling in love. I couldn't help but share.

Aw, that is SOOOO sweet! I know that "real life" often gets in the way of those "warm fuzzies" of love. What a great reminder of those early days of new-in-love feeling. That's a gift!
