Back when we were dating, it was so hard to not constantly think about when Chris would propose! I tried to be content in that season of boyfriend and girlfriend, but it was always a battle. I was READY to plan that wedding 😄 Then when we got engaged, everything became ten times harder because I just wanted to be MARRIED. I was constantly reminding myself that each season is a gift, and I should enjoy it while it lasted! Now we have been married for over a year, and it’s the greatest thing EVER. But it’s still easy to wish for things you don’t have. I feel like over the last year it’s finally started to sink in, a feeling of joy and contentment in whatever season of life we find ourselves in! I don’t want to get lost in the waiting and the wishing, and find myself missing out on the present of today! Someday we want kids, we want to buy land and build a house, we want to have ducks and cows, and these are all such wonderful things to want! But TODAY Chris is going to come home from work, I’ll give him a kiss and put his lunchbox away, we’ll eat dinner together, talk about our days, he’ll read a book while I watch another cheesy Hallmark Christmas movie, and we’ll fall asleep beside each other. And that’s the greatest gift in the whole entire world ❤️ Today is such a blessing, and tomorrow and someday will come in it’s fine.
