Went to coffee with Chad tonight. =) Didn't last long though because Starbucks ended up closing at 8, but still enjoyed that time before he headed back to seattle. Anticipating going up there with his family and getting to see him on Saturday! In the meen time these daisys he got me will remind me of him=)
While listening to a youth sermon one time, the pastor started talking about his relationship with his wife. He talked about not only loving this person but liking them. You must 'like them.' Sounds simple huh? This means that you enjoy spending time with them. That you appreciate who they are. That you understand that they are not perfect yet you still want to be with them. When Chad comes home I am always reminded of how much I like him.
This morning I went to church and taught my second graders - tough morning. I'm pretty sure their parents gave them sugar or something before church =) I actually got to go to second service this morning since I didn't have to work till 1. It was on relationships. seeing a similar pattern? haha
I went to work and it was an extremely slow day. We started to reset the store tables and stuff. I enjoy doing this - putting together outfits for maniquins and organizing racks so that they will make outfits. I honestly wish I didn't have to work Sundays. I believe it should be that day off for God. But they kind of need me on Sundays.
As a result of working today I missed the super bowl party at the dickenson's house. Bummer.
I really want to try harder with my family. I do have a tendency to distance myself with everything else going on in my life. I would like to commit one night a week just to hang out with the family. Work around there schedules, not mine. I'm praying I can do this and I hope you'll pray for me too. This is really important to me, but I keep making excuses that I'm to busy. This week it will have to be Tuesday.
