We read this book for book club this month.
Now, I had a few issues with it. Most of them had to do with Mormon women in general but I did get one thing from it.
Hard times make is what we are.
Hard time remind us we can get through.
Hard times make us grateful for the easier times.
Also, reading about other people’s tragic events reminds me of two things:
1. I’ll take my own trials, thank you very much!
2. So many people have “sorrows that the eye can’t see” and we need to be a little more fragile with everyone. Who knows what’s going on behind the scenes.
And so I am grateful for the things I have gone through. I am grateful for the people who helped us, who prayed for us and were overall amazing when we moved. I’m grateful that God had a whole new home set-up for us here. I feel very lucky.
And while I want to die at the thought of doing it again, I know that fear isn’t going to help it, and that God always has a plan for us.
Do your hard times make it easier to be less fearful? Tell me about it. Write a blog post and send me the link!
