stretched.

it's been an emotional week.

strike that.

it's been an unbearably emotional week.

i've been pressed and pulled in more directions than i knew was possible. it's like i'm one of those stretch armstrong toys; i'm being pulled in different ways just to see how far i can go.

it's been unbearable.

...

it's been an emotional week.

strike that.

it's been an unbearably emotional week.

i've found myself relying on others to take some of my burden. i've clung to my faith with white knuckles. i've found myself lost in prayer, asking for wisdom, patience, understanding, and comfort.

it's been unbearable.

but it's the trials, the hiccups, the roadblocks, the days where the sun struggles to break free of the clouds that we find growth. it's then where we find happiness greater than we ever knew, just waiting on the other side.

i'm not to the other side. not yet. but daily i'm getting closer, with john by my side, hand in hand.

and that makes all the difference.
