Do you have a life motto?

Yesterday was such a beautiful day here. It has snowed so much over the last few weeks. But yesterday, the weather was beautiful.So we took full advantage of it. I packed lunch, grabbed my two toddlers, and headed outside.

We ran, laughed, and played. Enjoying the sun and warm temperatures.

Wanna know something funny?

At no point during our play did we complain about how cold it was just a few days ago. We didn’t even think about it. We totally surrendered to our present happy feelings.

This was a real life lesson for me.

When things are hard. It’s easy to think they will always be hard. But have faith. Everything happens in cycles. And just like bad weather, the heartbreaking moments will pass.

Today I talk with Ronnie Tyler. She is one of the founders and writers of the site Black and Married with Kids. Her life’s purpose is to show couples that they absolutely can overcome challenges.
