"Come What May...And Love it!"

     I can't believe 2011 is already here! Where did the time fly? Isn't the world suppose to be ending next year in 2012?? haha... 2010 was definitely a crazy one. It sure had it's ups and downs! 

     After Tyler lost his job from Adobe Juvenile Correction Center he went to school and got his EMT while looking for another job. Unfortunately he was unable to use it because he took the first job opportunity that came along, which happened to be a Bank Teller at Desert Schools. He has learned two things from this job so far...one, how to save better and the many different ways you can invest your money (which is a plus!)...and two, that he HATES being a Bank Teller haha. Tyler definitely needs a job that will get him up and doing something with some action! 

     Then in August I found out that I was pregnant. We were very excited! It was total luck, we weren't necessarily planning it. However, when I was 11 weeks along I miscarried. That was really hard for both of us. The good thing is though, I know now that I can have kids! =) I have wondered about that in the past, so now I'm glad I don't have to worry. So for now it will just be Tyler and I and our little puppy! 

     Thanksgiving was really fun! We were able to get together with Tyler's family over at his parent's house. The WHOLE family came so it was a blast! I was able to meet some cousins that I had not yet met! =)

     Christmas was also very exciting!! Tyler was an awesome Santa this year...meaning I got everything I asked for and more! Too many presents actually haha, but it was fun! My family was able to come visit the week after Christmas!! I LOVED having them stay at my house! My grandparents also came down. It was nice being able to see them. It's not very often that I get to see my family in Utah. Unfortunately it stormed here the whole time they were visiting, so that wasn't very fun. New Year's Eve was AMAZING though because my brother, who is serving his mission here in Mesa, was performing that night along with all the missionaries in his mission and we were all able to go watch him!! They did such a beautiful job singing!

     Now onto 2011...a week ago my boss at my Physical Therapy job told me he would have to let me go for the time being because they are just too slow and can't afford all the bills right now. So sadly I had to leave. It was really hard not just because I lost my job, but because they were like a second family to me. The good thing is that I have a second job. I do taxes for people. Luckily my other job found enough hours for me to still be full-time, but they don't have insurance. So let's hope that I don't get sick or in an accident or something! The really bad news though, is the same day I found out about my job laying me off, Tyler's job notified him that in March they were going to be laying people off also. So next month he will lose his job. 

     This brings me to the title of my post..."Come what may...and love it." It seems that hard times never stop coming, and yes I know they never will. It all depends on how we look at things, how we react to the horrible things happening around us. I know everything will work out even if I can't see the light at the other end of the tunnel yet.  What ever comes my way I will learn to love. Then I will always have a happy wonderful life no matter what! Love you all!
