I think the thing that I'll look back and remember the most about Houston someday will be the long walks with my wife. I am very thankful that we have a little park in the center our apartment complex and she and I walk everyday. During those walks we have come to some pretty amazing realizations about life, God and the people that he wants us to be.
In fact, I think those walks are something akin to what Eden might have been like if we hadn't screwed things up. (Accept I we don't walk around naked. (Well I do, sometimes, when she triple dog dares me at 2 a.m.)
Nothing feels better than a good walk with my wife, thinking, laughing, praying, feeling excited, or just a peaceful contemplative silence.
Couples don't get out anymore and go for walks and it is a shame. We are too scared to go for a walk or sometimes we think we are too tired and we can't. Hogwash. Get up and get going! Shoot, get a babysitter or take the kids with ya!
Because it is different than sitting and chatting. And be honest, when you were dating I bet you took a bunch of walks. Right? When I see old couples walking I always wonder if one of the reasons that they made to "old couple" status is because they kept taking walks together.
