Noticing the Moments
Warm it Up
I had this moment the other day as I sat on my office floor cleaning out my closet. I came across this journal I wrote from the time Justin and I began dating until our first Christmas as a couple. It was about 2 1/2 months and I documented all of our significant moments, along with just the day to day events.
I turned to a page dated November 4th, 2006. I wrote, in great detail, about the night Justin told me he loved me. It was dripping with sappiness and romance. I flipped ahead and read about when we started talking about getting married.
And I took this brief pause.
There I sat, pregnant with our first child, reading a journal I wrote 7 years ago to this guy I really liked, packing up our townhouse in order to move into our very first purchased home.
It was such a crazy realization to look back and see the many, many blessings God has graciously given us.
And I’m glad I took a moment to appreciate this wonderful time in our lives.
