Ryan heading off to work this morning... Is it crazy that I miss him already?
These last 2 1/2 months have been amazing. We count ourselves so blessed that we were given so much time together - something most couples never experience until retirement. Yes, it will be nice having an income again. ;) And yes, a daily job will give us both a more structured routine, which we've been missing. But months of having Ryan by my side hour by hour, whether we were reading the Bible, working on details, playing with Hadassah, singing, stressing a little about all the crazy things going on, trying to catch up on sleep, or visiting with family and friends was amazing. Not to mention being able to kiss him whenever I wanted! He truly is my best friend. Never in all those weeks did we ever get annoyed with each other or want some space - we were truly made for each other. :)
So, he looks snazzy on his new electronic bike, and is excited to get to apply his mind to a new job. But while grateful for all of the new opportunities ahead, both of us will miss the sweet season that has just passed. Thank You, Lord.
