I am so thankful this week for so many wonderful things happening in our lives right now. Caleb is trying to walk now! He took just a couple of steps going back and forth between my parents last night. He looked so proud of himself. I know it's just a matter of time before I'll be chasing his happy butt around the house! He's also started showing off in front of people. I think he's starting to know how cute he actually is! Ha!
Ryan and I started a new book together this past week.
This book focuses on including God in your marriage relationship to strengthen it. Ryan and I are trying to make some major changes in our life together in order to have a more fulfilling relationship. I am so thankful that my husband is making this effort with me and that we can all go to church as a family now. With work, it's difficult to pull off going to church on Sundays but since we're on winter hours we can go to the early service.
I believe we have been through more marriage crashing issues than your average couple. Having a blended family isn't easy. Learning to balance working together and living together is crazy. My hubby's ADHD and my insane hormones don't add up to marital bliss twenty-four hours a day! This most difficult part about it all is realizing that we aren't perfect and that we can lean on family for support and encouragement. In the first two years of our marriage, we have dealt with so much. I think it can only get better from here.
I am so thankful for some things that have started working out for us this week. A dream Ryan and I have had for our family is slowly becoming a reality. I'm praying for patience and guidance to make the right decisions to reach our goal.
Finally, I am so thankful that this week is almost over! The audit should wrap up today and that will be just in time for me to enjoy a nice weekend with my family!
