My husband and I are buying our first house!  We are not spring chickens either.  We are both very excited to be buying a house.  We want to live in it together for a long time.  We are in our late 40s now so we see ourselves being in the house forever.  Or until we can no longer take care of ourselves.  I think the process is exciting for anyone, but I think when you wait longer to do something, it sometimes feels like a bigger achievement.  Like going to school later in life.  It often means that you got past various hurdles and are finally achieving a goal or dream.  Please pray for us!  We have our inspection tomorrow.

So you may have noticed that I’ve been missing lately.  About two months ago I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer.  As you can imagine, this threw me for a bit of a loop.  Cancer changes you and until today, I haven’t felt like blogging.  I feel fine physically but emotionally I didn’t have the energy or resolve.  Someone just subscribed today, and another friend said she’s missed my blog.  So I’m back.  I can’t promise I’ll blog every day but I don’t want to just throw in the towel.

I can’t tell you what having a husband has meant for me the past two months.  Here’s this person who told you that they’d be with you through sickness and health when you got married.  And them you get sick.  And there they still are!  A miracle!  A blessing!  Marriage.

I had my thyroid removed two weeks ago.  I was in  the hospital for one night and there was my husband on a cot in my hospital room with me.  He is a blessing.  Marriage is a blessing.  Appreciate yours, and your life!  Nothing is promised.
