Keith leaves on another business trip tomorrow. He will be back on Friday. It’s not too bad. He will leave again a week after he gets back on another one for another week. He seems to usually go for about 2 weeks every month to different places all over the country. I think he likes the scenery but is getting tired of the traveling.
It’s hard to believe he turned 40 today. For almost half of our lives we have been together. When you really start to think about it that is a very long time. Over 95% of my adult life has been spent with Keith. Think about that: 95%. Not many people can say that.
What is even more amazing to me is our 17 year anniversary is coming up on February 18th, less than 2 weeks away. Through all the ups and down in our marriage, we will be celebrating 17 years. Yet as I sit here and think about everything, I am also sad at how hard of a time we are having in our marriage right now. We started marriage counseling with our pastor this past week. I truly believe that he will be able to help us.
I know Keith and I do not want our marriage to end and that we do love each other. I just want us to both be happy again.
