We had a very nice Christmas. Quiet. Low key. Almost boring (in a good way.)
For our gifts to each other, Harv and I decided, well before Christmas and well before we knew what was going on in his body, to give each other a year's worth of dates. He planned six dates and I planned six dates -- which we each put together differently. He wrote his out as if he was the announcer for a prize-winner on "The Price is Right." I went the "crafty" way with cute stickers and paper.
We like the hopefulness of these dates. It gives us some fun things to look forward to throughout the year. We don't know how he'll be feeling when "date night" (or "date day") comes around each month, but my prayer is that we can do every single date before the year is over. We might have to switch things up and go out of sequence, but I'd like to do all of 'em. (The ones I planned shouldn't really be a problem. "sit around & drink coffee date", "sit around and watch a movie date", etc.)
Please pray with us that we make the most of this year as a family.
