Hailey and I seem to just be in the weirdest funk. Have you ever felt like there was this big black cloud hanging over you? Lately that is how life has felt. It feels like with every good thing that happens, a bad thing follows. The latest bit of bad that has happened is almost… Continue reading Being Thankful for Trials
This post has taken over a week to write. It is one that has been really hard, and has felt pretty personal.
