Hubbs: "ok" (I have LOTS of ideas so he is used to this)
Me: "I have been thinking that maybe we could do something fun and different this summer"
(in my mind I am picturing ideas from here, here, and here)
Hubbs: a little hesitation than, "what do you have in mind)
because let's be honest, sometimes my ideas are WAY out there. Like how I think we should live in Australia. No job there? BAA! Who cares! Let's just go
Me: "Summer starts on the 21st. That's in a few weeks. So, I was thinking that everyday until the end of summer we can do acts of love. EVERY DAY. "
(I can't see his face since we are laying in bed but I can only imagine...)
"It doesn't have to be very big. (because I know he is adding up the costs) But just little things each day, like a letter or leaving a note somewhere or....
Hubbs: "That's a great idea!"
Me: "Really?" I mean, "yeah, it is a good idea. If course it is!"
And thus begins our summer of love. Are you going to participate?
“Our most important and powerful assignments are in the family. They are important because the family has the opportunity at the start of a child’s life to put feet firmly on the path home. Parents, brothers and sisters, grandparents, aunts and uncles are made more powerful guides and rescuers by the bonds of love that are the very nature of a family.”
"In terms of priorities for each major decision (such as education, occupation, place of residence, marriage, or childbearing), we should ask ourselves, what will be the eternal impact of this decision?"
