Thursday Thought

I hope your week has been going better than mine. This past week has been incredibly hard. You know the old saying, "When it rains, it pours"? Well it seems like the trials have been raining down on me lately.

I have been trying my best to keep my chin up, to smile, to be happy, to breath and not let these trials get me down. Sometimes its okay and even necessary to have a good cry and I have done plenty of that today.

I talked with a friend earlier and she said, "changes 2016." I started thinking about that and I realized 2016 is going to be a year of change, Andy and I have a lot of big plans. I am hopeful that some of these trials will pass as these "plans" come about.

If your struggling like me right now with trials in your life, know that they won't last forever. The storm will pass. In the mean time, try to learn what you can from your challenges. I know it might be hard to view trials as a blessing, but more often than not, they are just that. They are opportunities from our Heavenly Father to help us learn, grow, and become better.

Keep your chin up, smile, and know that this trial is but a small moment in time.
