blessed.

The last few days have been pretty full around the Shumway home. Our perfect emotional high started at Christmas, and things just kept getting better! In addition to all the other great news we were getting, our house sold within hours of listing it, and for more than our asking price. The only explanation is that we are blessed. Now, we are 2 days from moving and the house sits untouched, unpacked. Recent loss has caused a slight delay in our family's progression, in more ways than one. At a time when stress, and heartache should be paralyzing I feel more at peace than ever. I am surrounded by blessings everywhere I turn. It's a funny thing, "trials", and how they really do make you stronger. I hope to always keep the gratitude I feel today fresh in my mind. Take a look around, the blessings that fill your life are quite empowering!

Good advice. Heavenly Father really does watch over us, and is always there when we need Him.
