I Surrender!....

Have you ever felt like you just want to surrender from the challenges of life, throw down the white flag and just say I give in?  That's how I feel right now, I just want to surrender and get a break.  The last couple of months have been the hardest times for my husband and I and I don't understand why.  We have had so many car issues that are constantly breaking down we have had 11 cars in the 4 years we have been married.  A couple of days ago we just found out we owe taxes, $600 worth.  I hate taxes, I just don't understand them and I hate that we have to pay.  It's funny though if you think about it, when you have to pay taxes you hate them but when you get money back from taxes you love them.  This year we hate them.  Then to top it all off my husband, Derek, just got laid off from his job yesterday.  I just don't know how much more I can handle from all of this.

Then this morning, I came into work to read my Bloglovin' feed and I read this wonderful blog post from Mallory from 'From California to Kansas' had a great post that is exactly what I needed today.  Head on over here to read her post.  I just wanted to share an awesome quote that she had on her blog that spoke directly to me.

I hope you all know that challenges will come and they will go but they will help you.  It could be that Heavenly Father could be lining things up in your life to make your life better.  I hope know things will get better for us.  However, sometimes it just sucks going through it.  Until next time!

I know how difficult it can be when it seems like the world is fighting against you, just know that you are not alone, that it might not get better tomorrow or even next week, but day by day, it WILL get better. Stay strong, you can do it.
