fourteen years


Yesterday was our anniversary.  It seems appropriate to mark the day, and there were several ways to do that.  He took the day off work, my grocery shopping was moved to this morning, and we left the kids with Grandma for a few hours.

The kids were happy for us, and seemed pleased that we cared enough about our anniversary to make a special day out of it.  On the way to Grandma’s we took turns telling them the story, “So fourteen years ago today, at this time, we were…”

Fourteen years doesn’t seem like all that long, and by long I mean impressive.  Five felt long.  Seven felt significant.  Ten was monumental.  Since then it’s been a blur of added years.  Honestly though, the years you are acquire not achievements, they’re gifts.

It’s the gift that changes things.

    • Thank you! And Happy Anniversary to you as well! I hope you find a way to make it special and to celebrate. We went and saw the new movie Dunkirk. I liked it because even though it was an intense, and a war movie, it wasn’t horrifically violent.

      Hope you guys are doing okay. I’ve been away from Facebook for the most part, so I haven’t been able to keep in touch as well with my Lutheran online internet sisters. I enjoy reading your blog updates though 🙂

      • I’m so out of the loop of movies that I haven’t even heard of Dunkirk. 😀 I’m glad you enjoyed it!

        We’ve been doing fairly well–I think we’re finally finding some sort of rhythm for life with 2 littles. It’s still crazy, but a more manageable crazy.
