This week, I give you this quote from the meticulous Jane Austen:
There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better; we find comfort elsewhere. – Mansfield Park.
I chose this catchy number as I felt it speaks to the process I have slowly been undergoing – relaying probably the most difficult time of my life to you. I count myself so incredibly blessed that this is what I can say has been the most difficult, as, going full circle, I am in the happiest time of my life.
Know that I am praying everyday for all of you in the midst of your most difficult times.
Looking back at our journey so far with Henry and Ethan, I am trying to recount every moment and find myself realizing I had forgotten things here or didn’t capture a photograph from a moment over there. Perhaps the human condition? Blocking out the most difficult moments and focusing on the more positive ones… this process has actually brought up more emotion in me than I would have thought. I am so thankful that I can turn around and see where we are now and how far we have come.
