the importance of loving each other

Noah has recently noticed when Jamie and I hug each other or show affection to each other. Specifically when we hug, he'll come up and stand looking up at us with a big smile and clasp one of each of our legs. It's really cute and always reminds me of the importance of mine and Jamie's relationship. Our relationship really IS so important to our family. If we aren't showing to Noah (and baby on the way eventually) that we love each other and want to be with each other aside from the kids, how will he ever know how a husband is to treat his wife and what kind of wife he should be looking for?
Most of all, I just love that I can get double the joy out of hugging Jamie. 1. Because it feels good. :D and 2. Because if Jamie or I happen to look over, Noah is undoubtedly watching us with a beaming smile on his face.


  1. mmm this was a cute post.

    i's not only how Noah (and le bebe) will know how to treat their future wives, but even how they'll learn to interact with God.

    i've been learning a lot lately about how i've often viewed God through the (incorrect) lens of my parents. My parents were never really affectionate with each other growing up (asian culture) or with me, so i've come to see God as someone who is kinda far removed.

    Anyways, all this to say... HUG AWAY!!!

  2. You are right Lydia and I actually meant to blog that but I think at the time couldn't figure out the words I wanted to use and then I forgot that I wanted to say that and then published my post and didn't realize until you just commented.
    Ha. Longest run-on sentence. But I agree. A parent's relationship with their spouse definitely influences how a child relates to God.


I love hearing from you!
