|On Isle Mujeres Mexico 2012|
Our lives here at home, like yours I'm guessing, tend to get pretty full. They are all good things and priorities are in order but there is still not a lot of connect time.

Now I know, tools help with this. Having a planner, making lists etc... but still the thinking goes on.
We try to do dates sometimes to make time for one another but they often still become more of "planning dates". By that I mean, which problem needs attention be it relational or physical. What we need to accomplish in the ministries we do together. What prayer requests or concerns we've heard of from friends we need to tell one another and haven't had time yet etc... It often is not a "go out and enjoy each other, have fun together" kind of date.

On this last trip we just got home from we went to Akumal Beach and Isla Mujeres both in Mexico. For the first five days we snorkeled with the Turtles and fish every day, it was fabulous. The second 5 days we did a lot of resting but also toured the Island in a golf cart which was a highlight for Chris. He was laughing and singing and making the Mexican people watching laugh. It was so good to see him so carefree and happy. It was good to see my best friend I fell in love with again. At home is Michigan he gets buried under illness,stress, you name it sometimes.
So we are back, healthier and happier to tackle life again. I'm just wondering when it's too soon to start planning the next trip!
