In the winter I wrote a post about how looking at the barren trees in the winter time always gave me hope. That even though things are bleak now, they will get better soon. I asked you to keep the faith. And today I wanted to show you the proof of that! These are the … Continue reading I promised you hope! And here you go…
If you have lived with someone in a close relationship (not like a roommate, but someone whom you love deeply), chances are that like me, you’ve been so annoyed and frustrated by some small and big things that they do, that you've wanted to bang your head on the wall in frustration. It doesn’t matter … Continue reading The moments that make the effort totally worth it!
Isn't it just wonderful when you are faced with a potential difficulty, and not just the solution comes to you easily, but something even better?
