Afflictions

The weather has been changing.  The air is getting cooler.  I can't believe how fast time has flown.  We have lived in Ohio now for 3 months now! 

And yet, every now and then, I think about our time in Utah and what a blessing it had been.  
We went through much happy times and also much hard times there too.  
From our tiny little apartment as newly weds that had hardly much insulation during the winter, the birth of Ciel and the continuous adventure as we moved on from there.  

Every now and then I cannot help being nostalgic.  
Today maybe more so because I had to give a talk about afflictions in church.  
I am so grateful for so many wonderful experiences we were given in life.  Be it hard, or even easy.  
I have said I can be quite a wimp in facing hard things, but then when I look back at it, after all has passed, it actually wasn't so bad after all.  

What makes it even better is having someone to share it with.  Our spouse, family, friends, and even sometimes strangers!  

So here's to life and everything that there is to offer.  :)
