How long does it take for a married lady to get used to her new last name (assuming she takes her husband's name)? It's like the well sought out answer of "how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie roll pop"? How much time does it take for you to say your new last name and let it roll off your tongue? I do a pretty good most of the time saying my last name is Hixon, but I will admit that I still want to default to Adcock sometimes. I know Casey and I have been married for less than 6 months, so it's still new. I had been saying Adcock for a little over 28 years, so it takes time. I wonder when I will go straight to the H's at the registration table of whatever event that is now somewhere near the middle rather than the first stop at the A's. Where in the classroom will my kids sit if the teacher assigns seats based on alphabetical order? I realize that when it comes to the church potlucks, I will still be with the A's most likely and not have to adjust there. I'm not going to lie and say I wasn't excited to move further down the alphabet just to compare my experiences at the front of the ABC's. I've learned that whatever your name is people will still mispronounce and misspell it,but such is life. So far I'm enjoying my time in the H's. You're not at the end and you're not at the beginning still, but situated in the middle. It's beautiful!
"Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.
I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you." Psalm 63:3-5
