the man of my dreams.

When we were first engaged we talked of our future family. We spoke of what type of parents we would be and what type of kids we would have. Some of these plans have worked out the way we hoped, and others have worked out to be even better than we could have ever imagined.

Of course we have met discouragement and frustrations along the way, and I'm sure we'll meet more, but generally speaking we are living those united dreams.

One sweet vision we shared so long ago was a perfect picture of a whole family asleep on our bed with us, our kids having climbed under the warm blankets in the early morning. We imagined this much. We never imagined the joy of watching their bellies raise and fall to the sweet sounds of their breath... the feel of their cold, little feet tucked under our bodies for warmth... the serenity in their sleeping expressions...

Then the gleeful giggles when we all awake together. I'm so glad for a husband who wished on the stars with me so long ago, and stands by me, hand in hand, as those dreams are made real.


Happy Monday in a life worth the living.
