I Should Be More Awesome....an Anniversary Tale
I should be more awesome.
Seriously....couldn't we all use a boost in our personal awesomeness?!
Like today, the 8th anniversary of my nuptials to the Hubs, when he fully woke up the mildly fussing baby at 5:20am by messing with him (instead of changing his soaking wet diaper rapidly and getting the heck out of there,) I got ticked, waved my hand in the air at my Hubs, said something probably very un-anniversary-like, and marched down the hall to try my darnedest to get said baby back to sleep...so that I could go back to sleep and a few hours later remind myself to be nice the rest of the day.
I could probably use a boost in my awesomeness.
I could be more awesome too if instead of serving up leftovers for dinner, I'd take a trip around the corner to the fancy butcher shop and pick up something more impressive to celebrate.
That awesomeness is still in debate, but probably not likely since the Hubs has a basketball game tonight too.
I'm pretty sure that I could use a boost in my awesomeness.
If I were really awesome though, I'd get a sitter and go watch his basketball game at the gym and grab fun take-out afterwards....but I hate basketball, and the smell of men playing it unless I'm in the nosebleed seats at a massive stadium.
I'm nearly certain that I'm not that awesome either.
It's looking like my anniversary day could use a dose of awesomeness for sure.
But here's what would make me the most awesome of all....to actually honor this stuff....the stuff I said and promised on the day we got married:
I, Logan, take you Jeremy to be my treasured husband. By the grace of God, I promise to respect your spiritual leadership in our home. I desire to encourage you in your dreams, and to support you in whatever the Spirit calls you to do. I commit to walk in step with you, to admire you, to serve you in daily life, and to encourage you in your own walk with Christ as the highest priority. I desire to create a home where you are respected and esteemed, and I commit to joyfully submit to your authority . I give you my purity and I promise to be faithful to you, and you alone. All that I have, and all that I am, i now give to you. Whatever hardships or joys may come, may I keep these vows and strive towards the perfection of them, til death should part us.
I'm absolutely positive that I'm not always that awesome....but I do think it is pretty awesome that with all of me, I want to try.
Happy Anniversary to the man who married me 8 years ago....despite all of my unawesomeness.
