This week in a nutshell was all about how we deal with the unexpected and how we choose to endure. I had a moment last Saturday where I just let it all go 😭😭😭. Trying to comprehend the devastating injury to my knee. After feeling sorry for myself.... I realized that I don’t get to control this situation and I have to surrender and humble myself.
Our family has had to make a huge sacrifice and we had to cancel all our summer plans. What I’ve also learned is my Children never stop needing their Mom, so even though I can’t cook, clean, drive, play, or shop with them..that I still need to make sure they know that my faith is unwavering and I have to be their strength, as they make life changing decisions, help them endure a physical illness, emotional let downs, financial losses, first 72 hours of getting braces.
This divine calling that I agreed to long before I bore these children has re-defined my earthly purpose and how much more I need to learn during my personal journey here on earth. I fall short everyday, but beyond grateful for this family of mine who has agreed to stick by me all the way to eternity. They most likely will have to carry me there to. #badknees #smilingthroughthepain #trialsaretemporary #iwillheal #italywillbetherenextyear #gratefulforfamily #sharegoodness #lds #familiesareforever #surgeryinsteadofvacation #lifelessons #gratitude #isattitude #cohenshugsarelife #thankfulformyward #kindnessiseverywhere #wecreateourownhappiness
