Yesterday I sat across the table from Joe in the parklet at Lola’slistening to the laughter and chatter of our children in the backgroundwho love to tell secrets these days.
I recognize in myself the emotions of awe mixed with a twinge of disbelief in the blessings God has bestowed on me.
Sure there is plenty of miscommunication, frustration, and chaos in my life. But when I pause long enough to recognize the milestone of one more year of marriage (eleven is our total) and the sheer grace God has shown me, I shake my head to see if I’m dreaming, because at times it can feel very overwhelming and undeserving.Just like my early dinner, in life, I am discovering how easy it is to pick up my fork and dig in because it is delicious.
Happy Anniversary, Mr. Sullivan.
