Quote Friday

Posted in Infertility, Life, Marriage, Quotes at 8:03 am by lifebytheday

I was reading some back issues of Real Simple on the train this morning, and found a quote that I wanted to share.

“The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive. You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity. Such knowledge is a true gift…”
~J.K. Rowling, 2008 Harvard commencement address

Reading something like this reminds me to remember (and believe) that God never gives us more than we can handle. Life isn’t always easy, there are up and downs around every corner, but step by step, we’ll get through them, and be stronger for it. The past few years have been a constant struggle for S and I, but we’ve learned alot from them, both about ourselves and our relationship. I know that he’ll be there for me through anything – whether that means cracking jokes in the ER, or just doing a load of laundry – and that we can survive the darkest days, together.

Wishing you all strength, hope, and peace as you face whatever challenges life throws your way.
