this date in history: 10.1.2006. spent in lovely norcross and atlanta, ga.
keep an eye on that top tier
i wrote last week about how our marriage has recently been getting the snot kicked out of it. well, of course, things arent magically better and wonderful and blisstastic and we dont have rainbows shooting out of our butts quite yet (stay tuned). but there has been some growth, some letting go, some cool moments and conversations and times of prayer (which had become shockingly RARE...hmm, connection?) that point towards the waning of this difficult season just as we were able to move beyond of the storms of our first year.
we reached the top of THIS climb and got to enjoy the view for a few moments. still climbing the next one.
so this anniversary couldn't come at a better time (as if it could anyway; its on the same date every year). we are hopefully getting the bug on a great new sleeping schedule which will keep us better rested physically which is so so so directly proportionate to MY emotional fuel tank and grace-giving reserves. and of course there is extra lots to celebrate this year because since last anniversary we have survived a pregnancy together, given natural childbirth together, and raised/nourished/loved a wee little 7lb 5 oz peanut-stranger, up to a happy, chunky 15 lb little baby boy who does all sorts of crazy stuff and fills our lives to bursting.
