Thanks to all of you for your kind comments, support, willingness to take our kids so we could go on a date for a much needed break, and for your advise. It feels good to be surrounded with so much love from people we care about and love.
The past day and 1/2 have been sooooooo much better. Hooray! Life is getting back on track. We just needed to get into the groove of our new challenges and figure out the best ways to deal with them. We found our groove and now we are moving onward...much happier I must say.
Life threw us several curve balls all out once, some made public, some private, but either way, they were very rough ones. I am just so grateful that a merciful Lord has shown us the way to help our burdens feel lighter and has given us hearts full of hope and encouragement.
I am going into this next week with an uplifted spirit and gladness in my heart. And man, it feels so good!!!!! The past day and 1/2 I have felt so much relief and comfort. I know that the worst is over. I feel such a huge burden lifted, or at least much much lighter. Last week is behind us, we learned, we suffered, and we cried (well, I did), but we were able to rise above and become stronger from it, and that is what counts. I couldn't ask for a better husband and companion to go through this journey with. He truly is a remarkable man!
With that said, life will go on, and will go on stronger and better than before.
