Thrill of the Hunt

Thrill of the Hunt, a short story I wrote, is in the October edition of the Christian Fiction Online Magazine. Check it out at http://christianfictiononlinemagazine.com/thrill_of_the_hunt.html.

Becky, I can't find it on the mag. Can you post a direct link to your story page?

That story is awesome, Becky! Did your hubby ever do that for you, or something similar? Or is this the story of one of your sons and DILs? It just seems so real.

I fully concur. If you're lucky enough to pick 'the' special one, then the game and the hunt only gets better and better. Think how ingenious you have to get to fit 'us' time in with teenagers staying up to the wee hours. What fun it is!!

Thanks, Eileen. When my sweet man read this he said, "I should have done that for you!" So, no, it didn't come from my own experience or anyone else's. But Bill shows affection and attention in so many other ways. My advice to the newly married (and parents of teens!): Don't give up in the rough places. Some day, Lord willing, you'll get to where we are now...36 years of history together and an empty house! I used to dread this stage, but I'm totally embracing our alone time now that we're in it. It truly can just keep getting better and better if you're willing to work, pray, laugh, and hang in there!
