Date Night Friday Turned Into Saturday
Dh and I ended up not having our date last night. Instead, we went out for lunch today while we were out running errands. We do manage to get out together once a week, and it's usually on Friday . . . but sometimes lunch on Monday . . . or like today, lunch on Saturday. And every now and then it's DINNER!!! Our dates usually don't cost us much, if anything at all. One night we went to a mall, looked at the puppies and kittens at the pet store, got a Coke at the food court and went home. Just some time to be alone together as people, not as parents, not as pastor and wife - but as Wes and Susan. Keeps that relationship alive. When we come to the end of our lives, our parenting stage will be over, our pastor-and-wife stage will hopefully not be over but most likely not as active, but Wes and Susan we'll still be. When all is said and done, it'll be just us. We're almost 21 years into "us" and looking forward to . . . ohhhh . . . 60 more or so???
