Eight

It is our eighth anniversary today. 

Usually this day fills me with dread because of all we don't have. 

If you asked me eight years ago what I pictured for us on this day, it wouldn't be childlessness. It wouldn't be the ability to sleep in. Or quiet. 

But there's peace today. 

Perhaps it's the home study being almost done -- come on contractor dude, come to my house and fix it so our social worker can see how safe it is! 

Or because I'm doing a fairly demanding Religious Ed course. 

Or because I have a summer cold. 

Regardless of the reason, I have peace. 

Taking a TTC break is good for the soul. 

And lessens stress. 

What I am going to focus on is how blessed I am to have such a wonderful, patient husband. IF has brought us together, not the other way around. 

I am so curious to see what The Lord has in store for us this year.....

  9. Happy anniversary! My husband and I are celebrating our anniversary today too! 2 years. And I agree that taking a break from TTC is actually something special. Enjoy a little less stress! It's a nice break. I can't remember how I found your blog... definitely through the IF blog circle somehow. Anyhow, many blessings to you and your husband in your next year together!
