Have you ever used that old saying........... Don't throw the baby out with the baby water! I suppose these things do happen in blog land............ baby and bath water tossed right out! I just did not think it would happen to me. I know this sounds cryptic, but it feels wonderful to just write that much. Throwing out everything, rather than keeping what is important is hurtful and great loss is felt. I have learned to move on and am so happy with that decision. Enough! I have moved on.
I love one blogger's idea to write a note to her grown children. This note tells them that all the implements found when she and her husband are gone were used in fun. It does explain things sweetly even though we all know that sometimes sweetness was far from our hohs' minds.
We are now two and a half years in doing ttwd. With the passage of time, ttwd is how we live. Jack is leading and I am following, stumbling once in a while, but keeping in mind that he wants a peaceful home and the peace begins really with me.
I have had the good fortune of making some awesome friends and we exchange emails frequently. I love them and appreciate their friendships.
There are fewer bloggers writing and the ones who used to be here are gone. I do think that is the fate of all blogs eventually even this one!
I never read my old posts and think it's funny when someone new tells me that they have started at the beginning reading each and every post. I thank them and think that is a lot of reading!
Jack and I sure have fun with ttwd now that we are really working together to achieve his blessed peace. Yes, I stumble, but I am quick to lean in again.
The intimacy Jack and I experience is the very best thing about our marriage and the rekindling of us by ttwd is wonderful............... most of the time!
We have been married longer than most here. Since beginning ttwd, I love leaning into Jack as he makes decisions for us. Really, I do. Giving up the weight of making the big decisions is great. Now we talk things over. Of course! The weight lifted from me is so freeing. It did take a while to give up control and those first few months, years could be rough............
I email Stormy occasionally. She has the ability to make me laugh out loud over things that are not funny at all.
I enjoyed LOL 10 because many readers emailed and we are having interesting conversation.
Jack and I call one another Jack and Mere all the live long day. We do this when we are alone, but when we are with others, we call one another our real names. We never switch them up. So funny!
Do you know this tumblr site? Great photos and more! This is fun!
