Yes, I am so longing for those weekly dates every Thursday. We have not gone out in a while and lately, it seem hard for Joey and me to spend time with each other. There just has been so much to do, no one would look after the kids, there’s rain every afternoon… so many reasons, so little time.
I can honestly say that I can feel that there has been tension between Joey and me. The major reason would be that we have not spent time in prayer together that much anymore, and that we have not really spent quality time just talking and listening to each other.
I hate missing Sweet Saturdays, but for now I have nothing to share, really. So I am hoping we could have that regular schedule again and for sure, my post would be a lot sweeter! Haha!
Joey and I have always wanted to go on a date at least once a week. When we were in the Philippines it was so much easier because we have family to take care of the kids while we go out for at least 2 hours. Since we came to Thailand, we have never done that because we have no one to leave the kids with. So we end up just having coffee together in the house, or watch a movie in the computer together.
Last Thursday, though, a friend of ours volunteered to watch over the kids for us. Yay! What a treat. We went out of the house feeling “kilig”– we held hands while we waited for our ride.
We went to a restaurant that was not that far from our place.
I loved the white tables and chairs.
And here’s us! We talked about our good old days and laughed a lot. In our dates we do not allow ourselves to talk about other people, bills and problems! Great idea, eh?
I am so grateful for that time of just being my lovey. 10 years of marriage has allowed us to experience so many things together. All those pains, trials, hardships and even sickness has drawn us closer to each other and to God. And yes, after all that we have been through, Joey still remains to be my favorite man!
I wasn’t really a coffee drinker until I got married to a coffee-holic.
One very warm afternoon while we were doing community survey (work-related– we are volunteer teachers here in Bangkok, Thailand) , Joey saw a tiny coffee shop where we could rest and yes, drink coffee!
