What is predominately on my mind this week is Robert. I am so very thankful I get to share my life with him.
You know the phrase "Absence makes the heart grow fonder."? Well, it is so true!! Robert has been overseas on a business trip since Saturday and I miss my man!
I am so thankful he doesn't have to travel regularly and I have tremendous respect for wives who's husbands regularly travel. It takes a special women to hold down the fort like that on a regular basis!
Even though I'm counting down the hours for Robert to return, it's been good, too, while he's been gone. We've had a lot of fun with friends and family. And it's been good for Robert and I, speaking on my behalf only, to have the opportunity to allow our hearts to grow fonder. Does that make sense?
It can be so easy to get stuck in a routine in your marriage between work, kids, home, church and every other thing that pulls you this way and that way. But having him gone, gone to the point that I can't regularly talk to him even, reminds me how much I adore doing life with him. At one point this week I even told him I was addicted to him. Ha!
But really, apart from God, Robert is my rock. He's a wonderful hubby, an incredible daddy and my best friend. I'm thankful God chose me to be his wife. He knew exactly what He was doing! :)
