18 years!

this was the most bizzarre image i could come up with to honor our anniversary this year. it made me laugh. i can't tell if it's a candle or just a tacky knick knack - either way i knew it would make liam smile.

we both turn 40 this year, it feels like we're entering the 'next stage' or as stephanie wrote this yesterday it really sang to me:

"So when I read the following quote by Carl Jung "Stages of Life", it grabbed my attention:Wholly unprepared, they embark upon the second half of life. Or are there perhaps colleges for forty-year-olds which prepare them for their coming life and its demands as the ordinary colleges introduce our young people to a knowledge of the world and of life? No, there are none. Thoroughly unprepared we take the step into the afternoon of life; worse still, we take this step with the false presupposition that our truths and ideas will serve as hitherto. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the programme of life's morning - for what was great in the morning will be little at evening, and what in the morning was true will at evening have become a lie." pg 9 When the Heart Waits - Sue Monk Kidd"

we are heading into our 'afternoon', our autumn-time - and we are doing it together. i couldn't be more excited and full of anticipation to see what god has for this next stage. i truly am so thrilled to be walking this path with you liam - i can't wait for the next 18! happy anniversary!
