Every now and then Gary and I run away from home.
We started this about six years ago, when the kids were 19.
One Friday in July his company was having an outing at the Mammoth Race Track. We secretly had packed our bags and planned to stay away over night. We didn't tell the kids because we didn't want word to get out that we were not home. When we returned all was well.
We have been doing this a few times a year ever since. Sometimes we tell them ahead, and sometimes we just go and leave a note. It is a very healthy thing to do for a marriage.
Thank You, God, for a wonderful marriage. Being happily married brings so much good in so many ways.
