- A challenge with the odds of success stacked strongly against
- A struggle against unfavorable circumstances.
A "struggle" a "challenge" and "unfavorable circumstances"-- that's how I would describe the last 2 months! But I realized that each and every day I have a choice. I can choose to be miserable or I can "count it all joy" (James 1:2) that I am facing circumstances that challenge me and make me stronger. I just need to remind myself of who God is and be prepared for anything.
With confidence, I can say that Brett and I have grown closer through it all in addition to learning to deal with circumstances beyond our control. I believe it is all a time of prepartion for us (hopefully for those twins that I want to have!) :)
And it has also been a joy caring for his father who is so dear to my heart. I just love that man. He has been a wonderful husband for almost 60 years and an excellent example to Brett. For that I am eternally grateful and willing to give back!
