We have some friends who divorced a few years ago.
This past year, due to so many little turns of events, they have “found” each other again.
And they are suddenly sweethearts and dating each other again. It is pretty sweet to see.
One night when I was explaining the latest happy developments of this relationship to Dave, he looked at me earnestly and said, “do you want to date me?”
And I said YES with a big smile.
Because sometimes don’t we kind of forget, in the hoopla of the passing of life, the interruptions, the trenches, how incredible those “dating” days were?
The twitter-pated ones where you just can’t get enough of that person you’ve fallen in love with?
I’m so grateful for this man I get to date every time I push my distractions to the side. Who gets me better than anyone else in the whole wide world.
Who sees the pig picture of life. And who wants to date me:).
May I continue to remember that he, not those distractions, or even our children, is my #1. (Although those kids are a pretty close second!)
TODAY is his birthday!
He isn’t a huge fan of sappiness, so I’m keeping this short and sweet, but he does make our world go around.
