A little later this month, my wonderful wife and I will mark our 15th wedding anniversary. In some ways, it seems like a lifetime ago that a fresh-faced 19 and 20 year old walked down the aisle of a church in small-town southern Alberta to make a commitment that we scarcely understood, but have grown into together. We’ve spent over half our lives together now, which is a marvelous thing. I doubt and second-guess many things in life, but the decision to spend my life with Naomi is not among them. She is one of God’s best gifts to me.
Anyway, enough with the sentimentality… This afternoon, we are heading off to spend a glorious week of celebrating marriage and friendship with ten very dear friends in Mexico. We’ve been planning this trip for over a year, and it’s finally upon us. Childcare has been arranged, passports secured, flights and hotels booked, checklists examined and re-checked, and we’re on our way!
So all this is to say, I will be gloriously absent from this blog for the next 9 days or so. I look forward to resuming conversations mid-November!
