Five Fact Friday – This week was kind of a hard and heavy one. I’m so grateful for five fact Fridays to help me find the happy. Happy weekend, friend!
About the time I’m done with that thought, Milo usually wanders in and asks “have you seen my spider?” #sendhelp
As I process my own feelings about the hard things going on, I’ve been reminded of the quote I heard a few years ago: “Adversity is mandatory; misery is optional.” We all face challenges in life–some that are relatively small and some that feel soul-crushingly heavy to bear. I so admire the hope, optimism, and gratitude that these people have demonstrated this week in the face of such real and true adversity, grief, loss, and pain. It renews my drive to do more of the same. Life is hard. God is good. Love wins.
The weekly newsletter goes out tonight around 6pm MST. This week, I’m sharing some favorite healthy slow cooker meals (so perfect for this time of year!), plus some weekly favorites, and more! Be sure to sign up so you don’t miss out!
