As we watched Rachel and David go, it struck me deeply that she really wasn't mine any more. She was his and that was how it should be. It would be just the two of them together from now on--working it out and working it through.
I remember when Brian and I left on our honeymoon and "just the two of us" began.
Twenty-six years and four kids later, we are happy. It has not been easy. It has not been graceful. There has been much learning and growth, but I am glad that in the end it will be just the two of us. Our challenge is to keep it strong NOW so when all the kids leave, we won't look at each other and wonder "who in the world are you and what are we going to do now?"
