These last couple of months have been quite a challenge for us. Because of this rough economy my husbands' business wasn't able to make it, which left him unemployed for quite some time. No longer being able to make ends meet we had to say good-bye to our home and move in with Rob's parents. I've really struggled with finding the words to write about our circumstances (hence the month of absence). I didn't want to write about it until I was in a place of complete acceptance for fear I would come across as a whiny victim. I have found that the path to that acceptance is a lot harder and longer than I had expected. Our world has been turned upside down. We've been stripped of our comfort and have been deeply humbled. Our faith is all that we have now. The faith and knowledge of our Savior. I had never had a full understanding of the depth the Atonement can have in my life until this experience. I have had to surrender most everything to Him and find peace in His comfort. At times I allow the loneliness and despair get the better of me and even in those dark hours I feel my Saviors arms around me. Before I had felt lost in the crowd and now I know that I matter. That my challenges and struggles aren't unnoticed. That I am loved. Everyday is still a challenge... but everyday it gets a little easier... and everyday I find more to be grateful for.
