Hugs in the Mail


I think I managed to thank each of you personally who left comments, but I want to say again, thank you SO much. It means the world to me to have such a beautiful support group. My husband and I had a great weekend away. Do you know how wonderful it is to have the luxury of doing nothing if you so choose? Being that I am home with the kids 95% of the time, not to be a mom for a couple days was a vacation indeed! We recaptured the magic of some of our first dates. We held hands at every opportunity, Sylmon opened doors for me, and we just enjoyed being together free of distractions. I am not delusional enough to think our problems are all solved, but I am more hopeful for our marriage. I would appreciate your continued prayers and encouragement.
I have to share the banners I got in the Christian Paper Artists Valentine banner swap. They arrived last Thursday and were like 6 hugs in the mail. I strung them up and hung them on my headboard. Makes me think of the scripture from Song of Solomon, "His banner over me is love".

Glad you had a great weekend away. I think it is so important to have that time alone, even if it's a few minutes here and there. A whole weekend would be awesome. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Hope you have a great week.

Oh, Nathalie -- I'm so very glad you had such a lovely, romantic, "first-datey" kind of weekend. I have a little smile on my face -- wish you could see it. I'd give you a hug and say "you go, girl!" and "In my thoughts -- every day."
