To say I’ve had a busy week
Is definitely an understatement.
To say I would have gotten
The tiniest fraction of
What needed to be done accomplished
If my love hadn’t been on holidays
Would be an exaggeration.
I am over-the-moon excited that our friends
Are coming for a visit.
I am thankful that I am on schedule
With my client’s project.
I’m glad that I am ahead of
My usual timeline for this time of year.
What lifts me even higher
On the wings of thankfulness tonight
Is the fact that I can look around
And see a clean, tidy house…
Not because of my efforts,
But because of my hubby’s.
Many years ago,
I attended a ladies’ retreat.
The speaker had written
A book about marriage.
She referred to husbands and wives
As each having only one wing.
They needed each other
To truly soar.
That may not always be the case,
But I know it is
In our relationship of 30 years.
I want to publicly thank
My lifelong partner
And the One who brought us together.
May we soar together
For many, many more years to come.
Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate (Mark 10:9, NIV).
