Gift of Time
Many people might say this is the recipe for wedded bliss, and a few years ago I'd have agreed with them, but in reality we miss each other and we're loosing the special connection between us. Add to this a slight issue of belief and life priority differences and the fact that I give my life to God's work and you can see that time together, connecting and enjoying mutual experiences, is a very good idea indeed. All we really need is time together.
Of course none of this would have happened without a very firm shove from someone who knew what I needed to hear, spiritual direction is such a tonic.
So this year we gave each other joke presents from the pound shop and have instead arranged to cook a meal for each other once a week, go out together once a month and have a weekend together several times a year. To get things started I've booked a night of comedy for March and arranged Rachel to have a sleep over in January.
The gift of time is truly what we need and I look forward to enjoying it.
