"What is the hardest thing you have ever had to deal with?"
I wish this question wasn't so easy to answer, truth be told. Hands down, my nephew's departure from this Earth and arrival into Heaven. Please click the link to read more, quite honestly, I have no desire to expand on that tonight. There is also when Peggy told us she had cancer, and when she entered Heaven's gates. And there's always the fact my mother in law had a stroke one month after our child was born, and her circumstances have not changed. Life is hard. Plain and simple. But for all the grief this Earth hands out, the hope of Heaven will forever outweigh it. Hope that says there is something better awaits, that we will get through the storm. The storm may not cease, but we will see it to the other side. For all I have been through, will go through, I know it could always be worse. I know I am blessed far beyond what I deserve. And I know there will always be heartache as long as I am on this side of Heaven.
On another note, I want to thank our country's soldiers, and their families today (Memorial Day). Thank you, for everything. For the time spend away from your families, for the ones who long to hold their loved ones one more time. Thank you. Thank you for sacrificing, for choosing to serve when most would not consider such a thing. Thank you for believing in this country. Today, and every day, I thank you.
