Out of Town Appreciation

Scott has been traveling a lot this year. I think this is his 5th trip to Shanghai in 7 months. This kind of schedule causes sleepless nights for him, cranky mornings for me when he comes back and a toddler who thinks daddy works on an airplane!

One of the blessings, however, is that our time apart this year has made me appreciate our time together more than I ever could have imagined. It has made me take advantage of ways I can serve Scott while he's away - mainly, I've become much more diligent about bathing our marriage and him in prayer. We've both become more intentional about communication both while he's home and in China.

Today I'm so thankful for an amazing husband, and God's protection on our relationship. I'm so thankful for our circle of friends and family that look out for me and Timmy while Scott's away.

But I'm seriously looking forward to picking him up at the airport next week!
