Life is good...

I have to continually tell myself that...Life IS good!!! I was having a sweet conversation with my husband today, we've both been struggling with almost being finished with this chapter of life (Matthew's school, my job, etc.) and some days it just gets you down. We're both ready for a change, a new season and a new chapter in life and I know it will be here before we know it, so I just keep telling myself to enjoy it while it lasts. His sweet text reassured me of this:

"We'll get through this. I know it. I wouldn't want to be going through these challenges with anyone but you. It's hard sometimes, but I'm sure we'll look back and say that these were good days".

I have an amazing husband who's in his last semester of his undergrad, working diligently for our future and our little family. I thank Heavenly Father every day for the opportunity I have to be with him, to share this experience together and know that all things have a time and a season. This chapter will soon be over and a new one will begin, with new challenges and new opportunities. Life IS good! :)

You two are soooo adorable together! I definitely agree that it's hard to see others in chapters of life that you'd like to be in (hi, I was the last to get married of all my friends... and last by like 3 years!). But learning to love the moments closest to you will make for a lifetime of sweet memories! Thanks for the reminder.. life, wherever we're at in it, is good!

I remember that time, almost done with school, almost done with work. Stressful but so rewarding in the end!!! You guys are such a great couple. Good luck with everything!

Yes Nemmy, Life IS good! Different seasons bring different joys and they are each appreciated and loved. I know you will do well in your season of change! I love you now and always. Mom
