A Happy Journey

Cherie and I spent the last week slowly traveling down to Atlanta for training. We left on Monday and drove down to my brother’s apartment in Virginia and spent Tuesday hitting 5 museums in Washington, DC. Wednesday morning we were off to Chesapeake, VA, to see my brother, Buck and his family. Friday morning we drove down to Fayetteville, NC, to spend a couple of days with our son, Matt. It was a happy journey. Of the approximately 24 hours driving time, Cherie drove 22 and I drove 2. I hate to drive, it is boring and restricting; Cherie loves to drive. When we travel by car I get what I want—I can look around, read, count hawks (38 the first day) and generally not pay attention—and Cherie gets what she (sort of) wants—driving privileges. It is a happy union. Which gets me around to thinking about marriages. It is possible to have a good marriage and not share interests; my contention is that it is just harder; it takes more work and causes more conflict. When one shares interests with one’s spouse, or one’s interests mesh with one’s spouse’s (like driving for us); it makes for an easier go at marriage. In general there is less conflict. Which is all to say that God was good in giving me Cherie.

    Yes, and blessedly Krystal loves to cook because I don't! God is indeed good, and I'm so thankful He works these things out.

    Agreed! Although, what are you doing on weekdays this year? Lots of visits to McDonalds?
