My Investment

There is a lot of talk these days of whether to invest or not. What to do with your money when your economy is in crisis.

Most people say that the best thing I could do financially is to hold onto my money and protect it.

But tonight, I'm going against financial wisdom. I am choosing to invest in my marriage.

Curtis and I have both been very busy. There's been a lot of stress at work with the new building. Lexi has been sick with a double ear infection. I've been doing my job plus preparing to lead at a different church this weekend. Needless to say...we haven't had any quality time together. (Unless you count me falling asleep watching LOST with him Wednesday night).

So tonight, we invest in a babysitter. We got out. We do this because time together protects our marriage. It reminds us of why we love each other. It quiets the noise in our lives and helps us focus on each other.

To me, that's the best investment I can make.

I am on your wavelenght tonight. I decided to leave the homework behind (a trend of mine lately) and sit on the couch to watch a movie with my hubby. We will both fall asleep but we will be all snuggled up together and reconnecting as best we can under the circumstances. Sometimes you just have to let go of control and enjoy the moment!

This is why every Monday when the girls go to school we invest in "Monday Date Days". It is my favorite day of the week.
