My grandmother called me during my first year of marriage and frankly told me, “The first 5 years of your marriage will build the foundation for how you and your husband operate for the rest of your marriage.”
Confession. I don’t recall the last time I was in the Christmas Spirit…I didn’t want to wake up on Christmas morning only concerned about which foods to eat, what outfit to wear, and whether or not I purchased all the right presents.
Have you ever been in church singing a song like, “I give myself away” or “All I want is You” or “I love You with all of my heart,” and felt a tinge of conviction? Maybe I’m the only one who feels like this sometimes.
One thing that I was never warned about when becoming a new mom was that I would be saying “I’m sorry” to my newborn son multiple times throughout the day. I probably say “I’m sorry” about 100 times a day. No, I’m serious.
I was willing to do whatever it took to get this baby to come. I geared up mentally as if I were in the NFL about to go out on the field on super bowl Sunday.
