So Grateful For Ben...

You know, marriage must be ordained of God as the scriptures say! Of course, I am still really bummed about the house- Paul accepted the offer yesterday and they close on the 24th of June. Unless financing falls through, our dream house is gone. Anyway, Ben has been so positive and has kept me thinking positive as well. It's funny, because usually he is the negative one and I am the one looking on the bright side of things, but I have found (and am very grateful) that when I am having a bad day, he is not, and when he is having a bad day, I am not. We balance each other out, you know? It's really nice to be married to your best friend and confidant- even if the dream house doesn't work out!

P.S. This is a picture taken right before Audra was born of Ben's Birthday present that year- a flight in a WWII fighter jet. Very scary for me, but he loved it!


  1. sorry about the house. there are so many out there, you'll find one!

  2. You were really pregnant in that shot? I totally couldn't tell. You suck. Geez. I looked like I had a beachball in there at like 6 months.
    Don't worry about the house...something will work out, and I'm sure Michelle and fam will love the company in England.

  3. Yeah, I guess I got lucky- I carried really low, so I didn't show a whole ton. I am certain the next one will be quite different...(IF there is a next one!!!)
