Harder Than This

"It's so great that you can write through this, Tricia. I mean, honestly, it's probably the worst year of your life."

Oh, I hope so. I hope this is the worst year of my life.

I hope it doesn't get harder than this.

I suppose it could. I don't know how.

I had a "This is the worst year of my life" realization in 2009. So far, it's been 100% true. I know I'm young so it probably sounds dramatic for me to have thought that, but then it really was a horrible set of circumstances. I look back and see a marked improvement thus far. I think you will be able to see the same.

Tricia I too hope this is the worst of what's too come. I've had a pretty rough couple of months and I just keep telling myself that it has to get better. Trying to stay positive. Please know that you and your boys have been in my thoughts and prayers.

I just found your blog earlier today and I became your newest follower. I read several of your posts (including the one on the death of your husband) with tears streaming. My, what an awesome love the two of you shared together. Most people never experience that kind of love in their lifetime; you have been blessed. I am praying for you my new friend; that the Lord will lift you up and draw you ever nearer to Himself as He walks you through this painful year.

May our only thought be to follow Scripture and "plead for the widow" (Isaiah)--in whatever way our dispositions provide and allow. Our prayers for you continue to be the most powerful thing on which we can and will expend our energy. Rest assured, those have not ceased.
