I guess an update wouldn't be such a bad idea, since I'm writing. This last year hasn't been easy but it's been worth it. We have been so blessed and I have learned so much. I look forward to what's in store for us this next year. Rick is continually working hard and more often now that he's received a big promotion. We are in a position to build or buy a home which is exciting and stressful. We've already experienced getting our hopes up and having them crushed on more than one occasion but we are hopeful that we'll know what, when, and where; in time. Me, being the less patient one in the relationship, is maybe struggling a bit more with all of it. But, Like I said, learning a lot.
This last year, I've experienced what it can be like to be seriously depressed and confused about our worth and value in this life and I feel for Anyone who suffers from depression on a daily basis. Thankfully, I was able to come to the realization of a lot of things and find myself better from all of it, less judgmental and more open to loving and serving others. I feel happier and more blessed than ever before and I'm so grateful to my Heavenly Father for the insight He has provided me with.
Now, it is a waiting/enduring/progressing game and I'm sure a bit more strenuous along the way because with trial and tribulation comes growth. But I admit, I've had some major growing pains throughout this last year and I assume will have more within this year. So grateful to my Savior and the love he has for all of us. Happy growing everyone!!
