Woke up Saturday morning with mixed feelings. Went to her crib and she wasn’t there. My whole body was just shaking and I didn’t want to call or bother anyone at the time I woke up. I had lunch in the afternoon with a dear friend of mine so I took my mind off on how I was feeling and went to get ready. We had such a great time fellowshipping together.
Once I got ready putting on my makeup, I came downstairs, grabbed my keys and off I drove to pick up my princess. Yes! Kizzy didn’t spend the night with her parents for two days. For some of you, this might be a piece of cake, but for a new mom like me, this wasn’t easy. I had to tell myself “Adaku, you got this” several times this past weekend. I missed her so much. My routine with her was off that her absence was noticed. I really don’t want to highlight just the sad part because that’s not the point for all this. The whole reason for Kizzy being away with her lovely grandparents was for my husband and I to spend time with each other which we don’t get to do often. We both are so blessed to have our parents live in the same states as we are, which makes life easier when circumstances like this arise.
I would like to encourage all the couples out there who want that fire to keep burning in your relationship. Don’t let anyone come between your marriage or the love that you both have with each other. Take some time off your busy lives and do what makes you both happy. Laugh a lot and make lots of memories with just the little time you are given. I remember, when Kizzy was born, my husband looked at me and ensured me that we will still continue to have date nights. His words were “I didn’t get married to a baby, I got married to you first before a baby showed up!” He kept his words and still, to this day, he’s living up to these words. I encourage you to make time for each other regardless of where you are financially. Sometimes we wait until we have money to take our loved ones out but it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s not about the money or the fancy restaurants or the over-the-top dates that matter, but it’s about the simplicity of life.
Here are some pictures from this past weekend and I hope you’ve enjoyed this blog. Til next time, stay inspired beautiful people
