It amazes me how difficulties come up daily. I feel like we finally manage a balance and things are going great as a family and the next thing you know something comes up and take you back down. When times get hard I usually wish the good times would last longer but then I realized we wouldn't appreciate the good things if bad things didn't exist.
Something I truly believe is that our happiness will be comparable to our suffering. We have to suffer to be happy, even though I really wish there were another way.
