everyday is a blessing

I think it says something about a person (and/or the marriage) when your husband thinks that the toughest day in the past year of marriage is ALSO the best day (aside from our actually wedding day, that was the best!). We made a hard decision, did some hard things and are better from it! WooHoo! We are tough, the thought that keeps coming to my mind is:

"Pray always, that you may come off conqueror; yea, that you may conquer Satan, and that you may escape the hands of the servants of Satan that do uphold his work."
Doctrine and Covenants 10:5

Satan might not have had anything to do with our day yesterday, but he is waiting for us to fail. To fight, to be impatient, to turn our back on the Lord or just to give up...he will not win!
We are happy to be together and happy to be growing together. We feel blessed for all of our experiences, easy and tough, they can all be good. The Church is true. The end.


  1. James here - I know these sound like we are in lala land and most of the time during the journey it is gritty and grinding and we wonder why life is so busy and we toil. But Alicia and I at most times are one or the other eyes-wide-open, meaning we know its a test and we feel better for it--more enlivened, more adrenalized, more alive. Thanks baby.
