FB Update: 3/2/14

Here is Dallin's FB update from 3/2/14.


This past week we have learned another great lesson. We have learned that life continues on. Sure we’ve had this terrible car accident and endured all the difficulties that came and will still come with that, but we will continue to have challenges and struggles. Amy on Friday tripped and fell and broke her arm. She does so well but it is not easy to take care of a 2 month old with only one arm. She was getting a tent ready for a surprise date with me. It was going to consist of grilling hotdogs, games, and a movie in a tent when she tripped. We have to admit we were very sad about this at first as Amy has been in a bit of pain and we will have to really work out our schedules to make things work taking care of Clay. However, we firmly believe that God is aware of our situation and He knows we can handle it. (With His help and the help of wonderful family and friends) As we’ve seen with my accident, when God allows us trials He gives us opportunities to see miracles and learn compassion. It didn’t take long for us to adjust our attitudes and remember that faith in God includes faith in His timing. Come what may and love it. We are not done with living life and all that comes with that. We have so much to learn and experience here on Earth.

There’s a quote we love in my family, “Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body. But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up,totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming .... WOW what a ride.” –Mark Frost

If you are struggling right now with something you feel is a little more than you can bear, hold on, keep going, and we promise things will get better. You will come out stronger and wiser and hopefully with a little more compassion.
