The day it all began...

Yep, one year ago today began the beginning of our year of........well..... you know. Things had slowly been moving down hill for a while now, but on this day it took a nose dive! Really, it has been the most difficult year of Chris and my marriage. As I reread my post from a year ago it rekindles the emotion that I had that day and throughout this past year. I only pray that we have learned whatever lessons there were to be learned and hope that we won't ever have a redo of this year.

Here's to answered prayers, finding humility, forgiving those that hurt us, realizing who your true friends are, Christmas Angels, family members who poured out love and support and discovering that we are both much stronger than we originally thought we were.
I am grateful for the trials that we have faced this past year and for the strength to overcome them. I am grateful for an eternal companion that took this journey along side me.... and through it our love strengthened. I love you Chris!

Beautiful post!

I remember hearing your testimony about your Christmas angels. And once in primary Tae talked about it too. What a growing experience.

I love to hear your reflections and the LONG list of things to be grateful for. I know it was a cruddy year but you sound wiser for it!
