I will be the 1st to admit that I am not perfect. Not by a long shot. Neither is our life perfect. But then again. I believe that no human being can be or is capable of perfection. Only our Saviour is perfect, and so very thankful for that reassurance.
I also will be the 1st to admit that this past year hasn't been the easiest. But at the same time, it's been one of the happiest time/years for me/us. Confusing I know, but it's the truth. Living in 2 different places over 850 miles apart isn't exactly ideal or easy with 4 lil kids. Saying goodbye to family when we have to return is... very hard. Growing up we often had 2 choices in a matter: "Take it or leave it." Since this IS our life at the moment, we deal with what is on our plate. And make the most of it.
Because of certain sacrifices we've had to make, we've been given so much more in return than we could ever imagine was our portion. This whole 'experience' has been a very good lesson for me. I've learned to realize what is truly important. I've learned (and this is quite hard for me) to disregard things that don't and never will matter. I look at things in a whole new light. I focus on what I DO have, rather than on things I DON'T have. But more importantly, I've learned that being happy is much more important than having things perfect and/or perfection. I'm so thankful that I truly am happy. Even if things aren't perfect.
