You are always going to encounter trying times. Sometimes events seem to happen all at once. Having people around you that you can trust and that will hold you up when you need to fall apart is the key. We were hit with a few blows yesterday, after being excited about a leg of our trip. We are determined to find ways to make it through these next few days, until we get to our next destination. Had either of us been here alone, it would have been much more difficult to work through our feelings. For the right relationships, adversity makes you stronger and helps you grow closer.
