Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

Twenty Years Ago

Twenty years ago today, I made a great decision and married my husband, known here as the Dad.  On one hand it's hard to believe it's been twenty years.  Yet when I think of all the water that has passed under the bridge of our marriage, it does seem like we've lived a lot of life together.  

We're taking a weekend away soon to celebrate this milestone, but tonight we'd planned to go to a nice dinner at one of our favorite restaurants.  We'd hired a sitter, made a reservation, it was going to be great.  Then, yesterday, Maggie spiked a fever and this afternoon I cancelled the sitter and the reservation.  Tonight we shared a take out spaghetti dinner with La Nina (Maggie slept through it) and that was that.  

But you know, it's okay.  One of the many lessons we've learned after twenty years of marriage is patience.  Patience with situations, patience with the kids, patience with each other.  So even though the night didn't go exactly as planned, we still shared a nice evening and toasted the past, the present and the future in fine style.  And if nothing else, we had a little reminder, life may not go exactly as planned, but you can still enjoy the journey.  And to my dear husband, the adventure continues... Lord knows, it's never dull.
