Yesterday was awesome in the marriage department.
I got home from work, and my husband and I went to a counseling session at our church. We discusses many things. Among them, we set up the date for our baby’s dedication/baptism. It is going to be right after the Christmas Sunday service. I’m so happy about that because my sister from out of state is going to be here with her family, and my brother will be home from college. We will all be together…well most of us, but that’s another story.
We aired out some things, and pretty much all agreed that we looked better and felt better. We also set up some informal counseling for J. He has been testing the limits and doing some things we REALLY don’t approve of, and I’m thinking perhaps some informal counseling would be beneficial. If it gets worse, we will seek out more formal counseling, but that is in the future.
After we got home and had dinner as a family and talked about our day, we finished decorating the Christmas tree. It was really nice. We watched Jeff Dunham’s Christmas video from a couple years ago, and pretty much spent a few hours just laughing.
After the kids went to bed, we took a bath together and just talked…something that is becoming somewhat of a ritual between us…and I like it. Then we watched “The Christmas Lodge” together in bed. That is a great movie that sparked some tears and a bit of conversation. My husband got really sappy and said all the right things about how much he loves me, is blessed to have me, and can’t imagine life without me and my kids. It made me cry happy tears.
As a lay there cuddled up in his arms all I could think about was how far we have come, how much I love my husband, and how much I wouldn’t trade my life for anything. I am so blessed.
