Date Night!

Friday, on our daily phone conversation at lunch time, my hubby informed me that I was not supposed to make supper and that he was taking me out on a date. It had been a while since we made an effort to go out and do something. We can be such homebodies! I tried to get it of him where we were going and what he had planned but his lips were sealed! Can't believe I didn't get it out of him knowing our track record with secrets! We went to my favorite restaruant, Olive Gardens, for dinner. Brad drove around to kill time, and pulled into the parking lot at Bob Evans. No offense to Bob Evans but it just doesn't seem like a date type of restaruant, especially with OLIVE GARDENS pretty much right across the parking lot! I tried hard not to look or act disappointed and thankfully I didn't have to try too long cuz pretty soon Brad bust up laughing! We enjoyed a yummy meal at Olive Gardens and then he said he has something else planned too. We went to Village Greens and went miniature golfing. They have, in my opinion, the best mini golf course in the area. We did the longer course. So romantic back through the woods and along a creek. Lots of spots for stolen kisses! Ok, they weren't really "stolen", it just sounds more romantic!
He did win the golf game but only by ONE point! It was neck and neck most of the game.
What a fun night it was. Brad knew I was dreading Sunday, being Mothers Day and all. We thought we would be parents by now. I thought I would be a "mother" by now. Yes, I still look at myself as a mother but in a way, I'm not really. My arms have not yet cradled a tiny person who grew inside of me, but yet, my heart tells me that I am a mother. Thankfully, I have the BEST husband in the world who can read me like a book and knows exactly how to draw thoughts out of me. Even though we long to be parents someday, we rest in God's plan and purpose for our lives and are convinced that in HIS time, our desires will be granted! I'm so thankful for a husband who is strong in walking this journey with me.


  1. I enjoyed reading this Mimmy! I'm glad you two had a fun evening. I can't imagine the pain you're feeling in your heart after having 2 precious babies go be with Jesus. I sat in church on Sunday just crying and I could NOT stop. It's so hard knowing ladies that get pregnant and have babies without thinking twice about it. It was hard going through another Mother's Day and not being a mommy. We pray God will bless you and Brad with children. God's plan and His timing is best! Continue to rest in Him. Love you~ Angela

  2. Love the post, Mimy! Had to smile at the "stolen kisses" thing. Too funny. And I'm so glad your husband knows just what you need as you walk through this life together.

  3. what a sweet husband you have to plan such a special evening for you; I know it is hard to get through Mother's Day when you desire to have a little one to cradle and love (we went through infertility and then adopted two children). I hope one day you and Brad will have the joy of raising children :)


  4. Village Greens - I almost forgot about that place, but I think it's one of the nicest courses. What a neat date night.

    Losing babies is no fun. And trying to get pregnant is hard. We can relate. Yet God gives grace and allowed us to go through that so we can relate to others. Don't get discouraged, God is with you. I can tell you are on the path to healing. love and prayers....
