36 years ago today TheWife and I were married. If you have been with me for awhile, you know that we were seperated for three years. Now back together for two, I’m mixed on how I feel. Without going into great detail because of the time I have right now, I remembered yesterday, forgot this morning.
No gifts exchanged due to money matters. I’m wondering what I would have done if that wasn’t an issue.
Well, I running out of time…maybe I will finish this later.
I have more to share…
Today is the 34th wedding anniversary for my wife and I.
There was nothing special.
She actually forgot…that surprised me.
We are not the same couple that fought the battles of the past. Don’t let the picture indicate fights between us…just the struggles of marriage.
We seem to have risen above that level of communication.
Of course even before we separated, we didn’t argue much.
The three years apart doesn’t seem to have any affect on how we live as a family. In fact, things are better than before.
Will there be a rekindling of the hearts?
To be honest?…I have no idea. I’m just taking this one day at a time. We have a lot going on here and there are other things of priority that need to be addressed.
I’m not sure where to begin…I’ve started this thing four times already.
The drive…the friends…the aches and pains…or the need for more sleep.
Well, Reg and I got the majority of the truck loaded Saturday night. There were just the last minute items that seemed to take forever to finish on Sunday.
Sunday morning we all head off to church. New Life Worship Center. It had been…oh gosh…I believe at least five years since we were all there together.
It was as if we had never left.
There were some people in the church who knew we were coming that morning and we figured the word had gotten out, but to our surprise, the ones who knew must have kept it to themselves. The look on the faces as we walked in were priceless…really priceless. As we began to find a place to sit, we were greeted with handshakes and hugs.
As I sat in the pew, listening to the singing, memories began to flood my mind with the moments I had enjoyed when we attended…the worship, the fellowship…that too is priceless.
It still has that at home feel to it. It was really nice to catch up with what’s going on in the lives of those you haven’t seen in years. They were having their Christmas program and a dinner afterward.
So I make the call after my post last night and I do small talk, checking to see if the packing is almost done and getting things finalized.

It will be nice.
I bet you can’t wait to see pictures…
I know it’s too early, but I’m sitting here about ready to call it a night and you know how they do the weather bytes…well we’ve got snow on the way. A twelve hour trip is turning into an even longer one.
I was hoping that we would at least have a stretch of dry pavement. It doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.
At least I know ahead of time and not going to be blindsided.
Gotta go now, I have a phone call to make.
