I'm sure there are many more stages to come (parenting teens is right around the corner - YIKES!), but we are so blessed to have each other. I am truly married to my best friend. We are currently attending a marriage class through our church and Tuesday night we had to each list what our biggest hope, dream, and fear was to each other. I was not surprised at all to see that our biggest hopes were exactly the same. To raise our children to have a relationship with Christ and to send them on their way so that we can enjoy our time with each other. As much as I love my children (which is a lot), I love their dad even more. We don't want to rush through these years with our kids, but we really are looking forward to one day enjoying the years of just him and me again.
We celebrated the night by going out to eat and buying a new shredder. Woo Hoo! We are ROMANTICS, I tell you.
