Next Wednesday, the Coach and I will celebrate 14 years of marriage.
Well . . .we won't actually celebrate ON Wednesday. I mean, that's a week day. And a school day. And there's NO way we could get away ON that day. Even for a minute.
BUT. . .
We will celebrate.
In our own way. We aren't exactly the "trip to Cancun" type. Not even "resort in the mountains" type.
We're more like the "take-out and a movie without the kids" type.
After all, one of these days we'll be able to go and do whatever. When our house isn't full of little people.
But for now, a quiet moment, a movie we haven't had the time to see, a roaring fire - it all sounds divine. (and I'm open for movie suggestions, by the way)
And I'm already looking forward to it.
In the meantime, it seemed appropriate to wrap up the last couple of parts to "How the Coach Won My Heart."
Which is kind of a sad prospect.
However, the truth is, he continues to win my heart each and every day.
*Putting all of the little ones to bed for me? I melt.
*Bringing the kids home from school? I'm putty in his hands.
*Writing me a sweet e-mail to tell me I'm beautiful? I'll follow him to the ends of the earth.
So you see, the story isn't OVER for us. Each day it continues as we learn to live and love and grow together. Raising the eight children that God has blessed us with for His glory. Growing in our understanding, our patience, our determination to seek the Lord in all things.
And along the way, having a whole lot of fun.
So join me here in the next few days for the temporary "end" to our story.
"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." I Cor. 2:9
