(12) Some Things Are Not Meant To Be!

When you make really big changes in your life, the journey can be both exhilarating and disappointing…sometimes both at once.

We would soon be living the life we had dreamed of for so long. While we still had a long way to go, we were ahead of schedule and feeling full of momentum! Little did we know, disappointment was lurking just around the corner. (more…)
