a few things. well, mostly one thing.

things have been hard lately.
not knowing what to do with this life.
not knowing what i want.
not believing in what i can do.

doubt is hard.
he's a crippling companion.
and just when you think he's gone
and you're fine and you believe in yourself again,
he comes back.
he always finds a way back.

i will be forever grateful
for the blessing cory is in my life.
he's the one who listens when i cry,
believes in me when i don't,
and holds me together
when it feels everything i am is falling apart.
he is the one who helps me find the courage
to believe.

he is my strength.
he is my courage.
he is my person.

picture from my honeymoon. i miss the tetons.

You is kind, you is smart, you is important. But really. Brissa, you are incredible. I'm sorry that it's hard to remember that sometimes, but I'm glad you have Cory. (Especially since you don't have me and frogurt dates anymore. haha.)

Love you.

It's like you're in my head, Brissa. Thank goodness we have great husbands--it's like having courage on tap.

read this quote today:

"I testify to you that our promised blessings are beyond measure. Though the storm clouds may gather, though the rains may pour down upon us, our knowledge of the gospel and our love of our Heavenly Father and of our Savior will comfort and sustain us and bring joy to our hearts as we walk uprightly and keep the commandments. There will be nothing in this world that can defeat us.

My beloved brothers and sisters, fear not. Be of good cheer. The future is as bright as your faith."

President Monson is the man.

Just keep swimming! You are a bad ass and you've got a great partner in crime. And we love you.
