Challenges now and ones to come,

This past year has been a challenge and its nothing I can't handle. But I wish that I could say that I have not got my hopes up with things that have been presented to us as family and to Jason. I am still trying to train my heart and mind to not get my hopes up if something doesn't go as planned. In my life there is no planning, its just go with the flow. I have a little bit more to go before I can just not cry about it and let it get me down. I feel like I have to have a heart and mind with no feelings cause they are going to get stepped on again and again. I know thats not the case at all, I just have to handle challenges with grace and look at it that it could be worse. It actually can be worse but hey its not, I am very blessed that its not worse. This past year has been one of the BIGGEST challenges that I have and there will be many more to come to experience.

Some of those experiences will be not so good ones and some that will be awesome. It"s just part of the adventure I am on called the Military life. I am just beginning to find out just how strong I am in this life and how am I supposed to deal with certain things that are presented to me and our family. I know that by the time that Jason is home I will have it all figured out and this life was mement for me cause god wouldn't have let me live it if I couldn't handle it. Also that I am so very blessed to be apart of it and to see where it takes us as a family.

  1. Hang in there, Scarlett! You are doing an awesome job:). But I would caution you to not fear disappointment to the point that you don't get your hopes up or count on anything anymore. You don't want to miss the good for fear of the bad. Also, one thing I've discovered is that the extremities of frustrating events are completely balanced in life by equally amazing blessings. You've had quite an introduction into the Army, but you are an amazing young lady and supportive wife and you're growing and getting stronger every day. I know Jason is super proud of you! So happy to have crossed paths with you and excited about the future for your family. Hang in there. Some days just stink, but don't let those days define ya! Praying for the three of you always!!
