This past week Michael and I had the opportunity to attend a pro-life event in San Francisco so we decided to take a few extra days as a little vacation. Arrangements were made for everyone at home to be cared for and off we went.
On this get-away, I realized how much I missed my husband. While doing all the things tourists do in San Francisco, we found ourselves doing things we used to do while dating and as newlyweds .... holding hands while walking down the street, sharing our hopes and dreams over dinner, enjoying sunsets and sunrises ... and laughing.
Family obligations, ministries, my writing and his job are very important in our lives; however, I am determined not to put our marriage on the back-burner again. God blessed me with a wonderful husband - my rock and best friend - and I will no longer take that for granted. We don't have to be away from home to reconnect ... we just need to make sure we set aside "Us Time"...even if it's just sitting on our porch looking out at the horizon.
Have a Blessed Day!
