all alright.



What a week. We're in the midst of making a big decision and I might be having a tough time. With all of this trying to see the big picture, dwelling on details, waiting and hoping for inspiration, and making sense of every thought that crosses my mind... I am exhausted.

Thankfully there were several bright spots over the weekend that offered some much-needed distraction: an evening spent with Clint's sweet grandparents, my good friend Bonny who stopped by to keep me company one night, yummy Vietnamese food and great conversation with Kristine and Matt, then visiting with family all day today.

Oh, and the moment that came while standing in a room full of windows and sunlight — a tiny reassurance that things will work out for the best.

  1. it absolutely will work out for the best! Sorry it's been a rough week for you! If you're still going to be my friend even if my feet get really ugly, then I'll still be your's no matter what you decide:)

  2. decision making is right up there with going to the dentist, cleaning the house, and dieting, on my "do not like list."

    good luck! all will work out for the best in the end.

  5. I hate making big decisions. Especially when I feel like we always make the wrong choice. Looking back I can see how every decision has worked out for the best but sometimes I feel like there was probably a much easier path. Good luck!

  6. I HATE big decisions. I would like to hire a decision maker...I think they could make big money. Everything will work out. You know what is best for you and your family. Hope you are feeling better and get to start this week off fresh!

  7. Here is my two cents, cause I seem to be doing a lot of that lately:
    - whatever you choose, be happy with it.
    - even if something is harder than what the other choice might have been, that doesn't mean you made the wrong choice. Right choices aren't always the easy path where everything works out like perfectville.

  12. For some reason reading your words and sensing your anxiety reminded me so much of our choice in adopting Eden. It was the hardest decision We have ever had to make and at the time it was an hourly struggle, back and forth. I tried my best to hold on to faith and know that I could be directed. I also learned that I first had to choose and then would feel whether it was right. It was so difficult but looking back I can see how it helped me to be closer and better.

    I do not know what choice you face but I hope you will feel peace. Because I know all too well during a time such as this, you need peace!

  25. oi, good luck. i made a big decision last week and i realized that the best big decisions i've made lately have been made really fast and weren't over-thought because they just felt right. i was usually deciding between two really good things but once i just let go and let things be it really worked out for the best.

    p.s. that confetti is so pretty
