Sometimes I don’t even recognize my life anymore. I’m glad–this is a good thing. But it hits me at odd times and I think what a difference a year makes.

We all took a ride in the country on Saturday afternoon. As we rode along, James decided he was bored. I reminded him that this time last year we couldn’t all 3 go anywhere together.

“Oh yeah” he said.

I’m SO glad we can all be together for lots of reasons. Driving is one of them–I HATE driving. But Lee loves driving. It’s so nice to RIDE in the car and knit or read or flip through a magazine–or snooze!

This adjusting has been HARD. I mean really really really hard. We’ve had a lot of rough moments and I’ve shed some tears. I’ve wondered what in the world are we doing and why is this so hard.

But when I remember that this time last year we couldn’t all be in the same place at the same time, I remember to be thankful. At least we’re together in this process of adjusting.

We were apart for SO long. Being together is a very good thing. Even if it’s rough sometimes.

So today I’m thanking God for pleasant Saturday drives–all 3 of us under one car roof!

    Amen Lizzie….. Sometimes we just need to look
    back and remember all of the things the Lord
    had brought us thru…..

    I haven’t been where you are, but I can understand what you are saying. I’m so thankful God is so kind and patient with us when we forget, and that He reminds us of all He’s brought us through. You are a very blessed lady!:)

    i’m beginning to believe that life is lived in the ‘hard’ … sometimes it’s lived in the really harsh, but mostly, it’s lived in the ‘hard.’ joy comes when we have breaks from the hard, get to look back, and see how we’ve grown and how it’s been worth it on some level or another.

    just b/c “this” is better than “that,” doesn’t mean that “this” is not hard 🙂
