"It all works out"

"It all works out, don't worry. I say that to myself every morning. It will all work out. If you do your best, it will all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. If we will put our trust in him, if we will pray to him, if we will live worthy of his blessings, he will hear our prayers."

- Gordon B. Hinckley-

I know that there are some people who found our blog during the pregnancy and birth of our daughter, Aubrey. Alot of you are having similar trials to us. I have been thinking and I just want to say to all of you, things will work out. Kami and I went through hell after Aubrey died. It was the hardest thing ever. It wasn't really hard at the hospital or even right after. It got hard when everyone went back to their normal lives and we were expected to do the same. We wondered how life can go on when ours had just ended?!

If you are going through hard times, I'm sure you feel the same thing. A year, two months, and fourteen days later I can finally say that it will be ok... all will work out. Don't get me wrong, we still cry for Aubrey some nights. We still feel a hole in our hearts that will never be filled. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel for those of you going through your hard times.

If I can be so bold as to give advice... (of course I can though... this is my blog, right! :) ... my advice would be to let yourself be sad. In the scriptures, it says that Jesus wept when his friend died. All too often, people think that crying over trials shows a lack of faith... that's a load. Let yourself be sad, but then realize that in Christ, there is hope and there is a future.

Aubrey is in a wonderful place and in the best hands that we could ask for. Thank you all for your support over this last year-ish. It would have been so much harder without you. Please remember the quote at the top of this page. "It will all work out," we just need to be patient and sometimes go through hell first! Best of luck to all!

Life without music would be like life without chocolate!
