A few days ago I talked about the memory of Valentines Day Past. My Valentines Day Present is that D and I are taking off for a marriage retreat tomorrow morning through the entire weekend, and oh, I am so glad!!
It is funny how these things work...we signed up for this months ago as a favor to some new friends who love this retreat center. We thought it would be a "nice" thing to do! Nice to hang out with this couple some. Nice to see this retreat center. Nice to hang out with each other uninterrupted by the needs of our kids. Nice to miss a Sunday morning. Blah, blah, blah. God knew better. Forget nice and try necessary!! He knew we would need a break from the routine just about now!
So off we go and try not to be too jealous, my friends!!
