Goodness I need to keep up with this blogging habit a bit more often. I do so well for awhile and then slowly fade until it has been months since my last post. Actually, Ben and I have not been at home for a full weekend since my latest blog entry, back in January. What a wild month February has been, trips to Nashville, Toronto (more then once), Kitchener, music video shoots and all usually taking place over weekends.
This morning though was glorious. Ben was considering going in for overtime at work, but seeing as this is optional, bed was more inviting. So we slowly woke up around 10 and actually took time to chat and stretch before rolling out of bed. We had time to cook ourselves a wonderful breakfast and act like 5 year olds with Saturday morning cartoons by throwing on Tarzan and doing nothing. Today has still been productive as we trekked up to Kitchener for the evening and day tomorrow so Ben and Bori can get their creative minds together for some song writing.
I honestly have to say the best part of my day was lounging on the couch, snuggled under Ben’s arm, singing along with Phil Collins with a tear in my eye. I was so at peace knowing Ben was relaxed, not feeling the pressure of being rushed somewhere right away. What a strange feeling I always took for granted. I treasure those quiet moments, just the two of us, even if we are only giggling at our favourite Disney characters together. Because the key is being together. Knowing you are safe, protected, free to be vulnerable and silly but also allowed to share any serious thought or concern weighing you down.
Yes, so much will be changing in the next few months with our beautiful child joining this world, but we will still have each other. We will always be a team, a chord of three with our Lord. It will not always be as quiet, relaxed or peaceful as this Saturday morning, but in the rush of life, with the distractions that will come, there will always be an underlying truth, that my husband is my best friend, my support and my teammate. We are what the other one lacks and I am so excited to pursue the rest of my life with him.
