"Love is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day." - Nicholas Sparks
We took an all of a sudden road trip today! We drove to the small town of Heppner, which is about an hour and a half away. Mike and Rachel live there and I loved so much getting to see them today! Cale didn’t do so great on the drive though. We’re going to have to figure out something that he can do while I drive for all of our trips to Seattle. Either that, or I’m going to have to hire someone to come and I’ll pay with desserts! ;)
We went to lunch and had a super fun time hanging out and visiting! Cale was making us laugh a lot which isn’t too far from being normal. We met some more people that have been praying for us through this and that always makes me so happy!
Something REALLY cool happened on the drive home! I asked Cale to tell me about one of his favorite memories of us. It didn’t take him too long before he started to tell me about our first kiss! Oh my goodness! Talk about a heart warmer! If my heart was a Scentsy, the scent it was giving would have been called Mush! It was so incredibly sweet to hear him talk about it. Most times he still gets things confused, I didn’t have to help or give him cues at all! So neat! It's so exciting that some of his memories are coming back! If I can get him to remember we're married and we're home...that would be helpful! Heehee!
I was thinking while I was driving about the man next to me, a soldier. I’m so proud of him and thankful that he was willing to join the Army, leave his friends, and serve his country. He was willing to do whatever he could to provide for me when we became a family (happened a lot sooner than first planned!). I think he’s a pretty awesome guy and well, he’s a stud!
