Sitting in my Teller Window...

..or cubicle as some peeps call it...

the song by Trace Adkins called "You're Gonna Miss This" came on the radio.

I'm a sucker for music..and relating lyrics to my own life.

I'm constantly wanting something...whether it's materialistic or something in my life emotionally.

Lately as in the past year, it's been starting a family.

Listening to the words..I immediately felt a calmness, almost like pure peace came over me.

'Cause You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this
...

For so long, I have wanted my husband and myself to be on the same exact page of starting the next chapter.

And of wanting that so badly, I admit.. it started to turn in to resentment, and frustration that he was never, ever going to be ready.

Last night, my hubs and I finally had one of those heart to heart talks on our way home from dinner.

Ya know, one of those talks that were long over due.

He told me that he wanted to be emotionally, physically, mentally, and even in a much better financial spot than now.

(Yes, I know you can never be financially ready, 
so please don't say that...I know.)

As he told me his times in his childhood of growing up with out a lot of things, he began telling me how he wanted to be able to provide for his family things he never had. He said he didn't want to have a baby just because it was the next thing to do.

And that right there...made me realize he was one, smart man.

Thank you, Lord.
