I had this vision for a grand, epic, earth-moving final post, but I was obviously fooling myself.
My wife and I were praying with friends of ours tonight, and it reminded me that it was never promised to me or my wife or anyone else that life would be easy. As I age, I get to know more and more people facing all the life circumstances that I never thought I'd see. I never wanted the "it'll never happen to me" bubble to be broken, but it was a while ago. And by "happen to me", I mean either myself, or friends and family going through stuff. Divorce, cancer, death, miscarriages, infertility, and a host of other things have shaken us and the people around us to the core.
Life isn't all bad, though. Challenging, yes, but not all bad.
I don't know where I'm going with all that. Just some thoughts.
Thanks for reading, everyone. It has been a slice. I'm sure I'll drop in from time to time and update you on what's going on.
Love you all. Thanks again.
