I've been thinking a lot lately on how each one of us go through life's bumps on the road. I kept being reminded to look toward that light hidden at the end of the tunnel over and over again this past month. What stuck with me mostly though, happened about 2 weeks ago. Tyler and I had just received a letter denying us for medicaid. I knew it was out of my control bubble, and that we had tried but boy was it hard to grasp at that moment. For a while all I could think to do was cry. So I just sobbed. I felt like such a bad mother already for not being able to provide something so simple as health insurance for our baby. The instant that I had managed to stop all the crying, Tyler hugged me and told me to get ready. We ended up driving to Target since I had a gift-card that my wonderful sister in-law, Tasha, had sent us for maternity clothes. As we walked around Target, I continued to feel guilty to be even considering shopping for clothes while I still hadn't figured out a plan for insurance. So instead we walked around the home section. That's when I saw this picture:
here. I strongly encourage you to read it I just love it so much! I feel so blessed to be a part of such an amazing organization, with leaders who guide me each way possible. I am so grateful for my husband being able to not only see but point out to me all the good things life has to offer, no matter how small that thing may be. I am grateful for the power of prayer, and for a Heavenly father who loves me. I am especially grateful for this picture, although a bit gray and lacking high quality, it has a special meaning to me. I will forever remember that day.
Tyler here, just thought I'd say a few things cuz I want my family to remember me out here in va. I'm that guy thats married to your favorite daughter-in-law. I just wanted to add that after we searched out a price scanner with this massive eye chart, Debbie decided that God wanted us to get the message, but not buy it and bring it home since we were so worried about being poor for the previous couple of days. Also, we did find an insurance that will waive the "pre-existing condition" that is due in Nov. as long as we show them that we had other insurance, so we're pretty sure we're in the clear there. Debbie has been hard at work making headbands and necklaces and all kinds of stuff with her new-found crocheting skills, and when I laughed that she had brought it to my doctors appointment, she just smiled and said that she would be a happy old lady. Well, I better say now that I'm going to be a happy old man married to this one.
