The State of our Union.

Hi Y'all,

Clearly I have not been blogging. No matter how much I swear I am going to blog it just somehow does not happen. I have to say that I do have a reason for not blogging though.

The hubs and I have been going through a deeply personal stage in our lives and honestly we have been wanting to keep our lives a bit private until what we want comes through.

We are learning that sometimes you cannot control things.

Sometimes work doesn't go the way you plan it and you have to work a lot. Sometimes finances are not in tip-top shape and you have to squeeze every little penny. Sometimes fun activities are not that fun when you have something on the back of your mind. But we are learning that we cannot control things. We are learning that no matter how much we want something to happen it is really all God's plan.

So what are we going to do about this thing we cannot control? We are going to continue to proactively do everything in our power to make it happen. We will be focused and motivated and excited and hopeful... BUT we will also be calm and collected. What we are going through is a test to our relationship as well as a test to who we are as people, and so far we are passing with flying colors.

What this difficult "stage" in our lives is teaching me is that I am part of a union that is so strong that not even the largest of relationship-quakes can shake us up. I am learning that I married the RIGHT man for me. I am learning that without my husband I would not be strong. I am learning that I am eternally grateful to God for having him in my life. My husband has become my miracle and after 8 years of knowing him I cannot fathom existing without him.

Today I blogged because I am Thankful for my life and the people in it and I thought my four readers should know.

Thank you if you are still reading. :)

Gratefully yours,

Mrs. Pink.
