I really hate writing about hard things, especially here, because I like this blog to be a place where things are hopeful. But I feel like it would be dishonest of me not to share some of this, and to instead present only our sunnier days.
Anyway, it isn't any one thing that's been particularly hard. A few months ago, it was easy for me to name our challenges: hospitals, unexpected bills, new babies, etc. Now, it's just a something. It comes, it goes. Some days are harder than others. Whatever it is, I just haven't felt much like myself lately.
But God is good. He is present in the good times, the challenging times... and even better, He makes good out of our bad. It's encouraging to know that during days like these.
I'm hoping that now that this is all out in the open -- that it isn't always all sunshine and roses over here -- I'll be less hesitant to post around here.
