Ahhhh....a peaceful evening out for a few hours, but sadly not with my husband! I met with some homeschooling girlfriends for dinner last night and it was so refreshing! We really didn't talk much about our homeschools, but we did get a glimpse into the "real" women that we are apart from teaching. You know sometimes its nice to know more about your friends and not just the things you have in common. I was surprised by so many things that were shared, but more impressed with the way each lady handled themselves in each situation. I have a much greater respect for each of them and now I know a little bit more about who they are and how God has used them. It was a wonderfully enlightening evening!
Although my dear husband was at home watching our precious children (and a few extra), I did so enjoy the time away, but missed him dearly. I wish there were ways to find time away with him. It seems that we never make time to go anywhere just the 2 of us. We are always too busy serving the other one that we forget to serve our marraige. Surely someday we will see that we need to stop serving each other with restful times away from the children and chaos of our lives to realize we need some time together.
