And then it hit me.
What about cherishing these sweet days of being married to my best friend?!
The first love that made us want to stay up all night talking. The first love that overlooked those annoying little quirks. The first love that squeezed onto one side of the restaurant booth so our shoulders would touch through the meal. The first love that showed you what is really felt like to be unconditionally accepted.
This love, sweet friends. This is what we can't forget. Because just like our days of raising our babies are number, so are our days of being married to our best friend. As much as I hate to admit it, none of us are promised 75 long happy years together. We only have today. This moment. This chance to patiently overlook offenses. This chance to cuddle up close at night and warm each others cold feet. This chance to live out a great love that reflects Christ.
So let's not waste it with this all consuming passion for motherhood.
