Decided to hold off until the start of the week on the topic of physical intimacy in marriage - it's a big topic. Plus, readers are still finding my Soul Mates devo from this week and responding to it ... glad I'm not the only one who has trouble getting to all their emails on a given day. Or maybe people are just forwarding it to friends. I'm praying it reaches everyone who needs it.
Tonight darling daughter was invited to an end-of-school-year party from 4:00 - 8:00 pm and then, surprisingly, a neighbor offered to have our son over and take him to the movies during that time. Which meant a 4 hour window for a spontaneous Saturday night date night! Rick and I were ecstatic.
We stopped in at a gourmet shop we go in from time to time and the owners there recommended a fabu French restaurant to us. Yes, it was a bit pricey. More expensive than we would have gone to on our own had we planned this date night, but we felt obligated to try the place they raved about. Oh, wow. I'm telling you, the food was soooo good I'm considering sending them a thank-you card.
Instead I thanked Rick for the yummy meal and the great conversations we had. Date night + French restaurant + laughter with Rick = super happy girl.
Off to tuck the kids in bed ~ catch y'all a little later.
