savor each moment
don’t let the good stuff pass by
take joy in small things!!
We met for a quick lunch date today to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. I can’t believe how fast the years are going by. I got married at 19… and now have been married for half of my life. And it has definitely been the best half 🙂
I thought I knew what I wanted to order, but then my hubby suggested we get the crab dip and pita chips.
I admit- part of me wanted to object, because I have been trying to stay away from bread and carbs- but I obliged.
And they were the absolute best pita chips I have ever had. Hands down. And the dip was absolutely amazing!! Babe- I’m so glad you love food as much as I do I told him as we enjoyed the feast laid out before us.
Afterwards, we went to get coffee. I usually order something completely boring. No sugar, hold the whip cream. The barista usually comments that I am no fun because of it.
Hubby said get what you love today. As I took the first sip of my iced caramel macchiato, I took in a huge swirl of caramel syrup. My eyes were as big as saucers- oh. my. goodness… this is the best thing I have tasted in forever- I told my husband.
He smiled and gave me some great advice-
don’t let the good stuff pass you by.
And as he said that, God flashed before me all the good stuff I have to be thankful for. There is so much good- far too much for me to ever dwell on anything else. I am so grateful for my husband and for how different we are- how we perfectly compliment each other.
He is the peanut butter to my jelly. The yin to my yang. He is my lobster.
He is good stuff.
Today was a great reminder to appreciate all the good stuff in life… it’s there in abundance if we open our eyes, focus on Him at all times, and take it in.

God is good and I am blessed!
