For the most part that heading is correct. Encouraging Words?
We have been sharing our excitement with most everyone who asks. (Well, to be honest, even those who don’t ask), and for the most part we receive encouraging words. BUT.... here comes the Question mark. We have had some surprises. People who we thought would be very encouraging and supportive have surprised us with that question mark. People who we thought would think we were nuts, (they probably still think we are nuts), but they at least had very encouraging words for us. ( to our face at least) I say this all in good,silliness. To be fair we have received a tremendous amount of good support and shared excitement but I do need to address the question mark.
So for my question mark friends and family. YES we are nuts!! Let’s put that rumor to rest right away. It is hard for me to answer that question mark because I myself have the same question mark in my everyday life. I just know that it is ok to question, in fact it is very OK to question. Just think what a boring life we would have if we never met that little curved line with a dot below it. We only get one go around at this life and I have been very fortunate to have a husband who continually jumps on this crazy Train with both feet to hold my hand. Yes, we maybe a little crazy, but I LOVE THIS CRAZY.
I love reminding my husband of a conversation we had after our girls were gone to college and our son was graduating from high school and moving out. Ernie,”Are you worried that we can do this ? Marriage? Life without the kids around? Our friends were their friends, we were go, go , go for years and years. Will we even be able to get along with just us?” What will we even do?” HAHAHAHAHA REALLY???? Me, “ I don’t know Ernie, I guess we will have to see” And fast forward 8 years.. We are more in love today than ever and to be fair, more in debt than ever before.. But here’s to the adventures we have had and will forever have. Yes Ernie, we are making it. We are very lucky to enjoy our time and life together. So why not buy a farm (question mark)
I LOVE and welcome all the question marks, but i love that ^ one the most..
