When Something Bad Happens...

You Have Three Choices. You Can Either Let It Define You. Let It Destroy You. Or You Can Let It Strengthen You.

Alright so some of you may have noticed I have NOT been blogging as often as I usually do!...To be honest...my brain has just been elsewhere! But tonight I feel the need to get some feelings out there in the best way I know how!! To write them out!! ...

I love my family so much...that is NO secret! And I look up to all of them for the strength they have!
Recently though there are 2 VERY strong people that I have been such an example to me of not letting something bad destroy you but to let it strengthen you!

Erinn and Greg are 2 of my favorite people!! I have looked up to Erinn my entire life and have some really funny memories of her when we were little! When she married Greg I got a great look into the life of newly married couple and up until now I have admired their marriage so much. I know Erinn will say that their marriage is not perfect and of course I've seen the moments where Greg pushes Erinns buttons and lets be serious she does it right back...haha ....but this is also something I love and admire about them!...They get over it and they love each other so unconditionally!! In my opinion there is no better 2 people that were made for each other! :)
Recently Greg was diagnosed with a very rare brain tumor. I would be lying if I wasn't hurting and a bit angry when I found this out! Why him? riiight? Why the best guy ever and why Erinn? Oh how badly I just wanted to take that away from them!
As everything has progressed in the last few weeks our family and especially Erinn and Greg have seen nothing short of AMAZING blessings!! And what I have seen is 2 people rise above something terrible and let it strengthen them! I have really seen them take this one day at a time and just taking that time to spend with those that LOVE them so so much and spend time together also as just their little family!
Being able to see their strength on their own and together has been such a great example to me! And has shown me how important it is to spend time with family and those who love you! Also how important it is to not waste time and to do all things that will bring you joy and happiness!
I know that we can find blessings in trials and that everything will always work out!...Mostly I just want YOU TWO to know how much I love and admire you! Your strength amazes me and I love you both to the moon and back again!!

Also my prayers are with the family and friends of those 4 teenagers killed in an awful car accident a couple nights ago in my small hometown. Such a tragedy and a great loss. Those families involved, I cannot imagine that pain and I hope and pray that you will find comfort in this hard time.

Let us all be mindful of showing our love to those around us everyday! AND PLEASE PLEASE REMEMBER....

Happiness Can Be Found Even In The Darkest Of Times, If One Only Remembers To Turn On The Light.

Keep the Spirit close with you at all times and always remember and have faith in the love that Heavenly Father has for every single one of us! He is mindful of our pains and our triumphs, he will never leave you...even when you leave him....So have faith in Him...and His timing..
