A Weekend of Renewal

This weekend was a blessing. A couple of us were still a little under the weather, and I woke up cranky and grouchy on Saturday. But by the end of yesterday, the weekend had turned itself around. Lowell and I had a couple of deep talks about where we are, where we're going and how we want the ride to be on the way to our future. We talked about our dreams for the future and our complaints about our todays, as well as about how we can work on making our ideals of 'family' come true. We talked about our schedules, our priorities, money, time and discipline. It was a nice reminder that we are still facing the same way, still headed in the same direction and still holding hands on the journey. He's still glad that he's doing life with me and I'm still happy to be in partner in this adventure.
It wasn't a momentous occasion or announcement; it was just a day to remind ourselves that we're blessed to have each other and that we're blessed as a family. It was a day to re-focus on the positives and to have a long-term focus instead of getting bogged down in the minute-by-minute details that can be dis-heartening and frustrating.
I'm very thankful for my husband. And I'm happy to report that he still likes me too. :)
