Like all married couples we have our ups and downs, and I am the first to admit I am not the easiest person to deal with - much less live with. I am emotional, temperamental, hormonal (ha!), with the tendency to get side tracked with "house work" when I am getting ready for work, church or any thing for that matter. We both deal with insecurities that creep up at times and we've had our share of arguments, disagreements and colorful discussions - but I know the love is there. And this is how I know.
I work on Saturdays - and yesterday I knew I had tons of paperwork/copying/sorting/filing to do and such-and it has to get finished. I was feeling weepy and ill - didn't want to go in. I asked my husband to come to work with me and he did. He stayed there the whole time - and helped copy close to 600 pages of documents. He never complained - he made my day. No amount of flowers or jewelry could have meant more.
My daughter lives in the wonderful world of 16-year old girls. And she is having a rough time of it lately, though some of the problems are of her own making - others are not and she is hurting. I wish I could stop the pain. I cling to the fact she will be more stronger and wiser tomorrow than she is today. She has a bright future ahead of her.
He has a hamster.......
My sister, the evil woman, called my son, "Hey Sam do you want a hamster?" Well, what do you think he said? You guessed it, we have a hamster. Oh boy.
I am just about the same age as "man walking on the moon" I will be 40 in a few weeks. And there are days I feel it and then there are days when I look in the mirror...and say hey, "I am not 40!." Whew.
Back to teaching...
Steve and I are teaching 2nd and 3rd grade Sunday School. I missed all the kids and it is fun. The cool part is we are "co teaching" meaning we teach every other Sunday- giving us and the other couple teaching a time with adults - but still serving.
