Bitter Sweet | Mostly Sweet

Yesterday I trekked through a snow storm to head to Salt Lake City.

I headed to Salt Lake to celebrate Chance's wedding {extra bonus : seeing Adam}.

It feels like an end of an era.

And it is a weird feeling.

I have always felt we were quite the dynamic trio. That's okay to admit, right? To admit together we were dynamic? ;)

They came into my life at a time where I was completely heartbroken {that's what happens to little Aggies living in Provo}. So many things in my life had been turned upside down and my heart torn into a million little pieces.

I contemplated the "whys" of my situation a lot during that time and received no answers. However, on a trip to New Mexico with my boys {to visit Chance's family}, part of an answer came.

We were sitting in Church. Adam and Chance were practicing their musical number {Adam singing and Chance playing the piano}. As I sat there watching my two best friends share their talents, I had a moment I will never forget. Admist all my sorrow and grief, I was overwhelmed with my gratitude for these two men and my association with them. 

If things had worked out the way I had wanted, it would have been a life absent of their friendship. And that isn't what a loving Heavenly Father wanted for me. He wanted a life for me that included both of these men. 

My life didn't turn out the way I had planned. 

It had turned out better. 

I just didn't recognize it until that moment. 

In the last six-and-a-half years, all three of us have grown up.

Yet, while our relationships have changed, we haven't really grown apart.

And for that, I will always be grateful. We fit into each others' lives exactly where we are meant to. 

And maybe one day, if Hell freezes over ... we can all meet up again for my wedding. ;)

But I am not holding my breath. So, you shouldn't either.

Sure do love ya, Chance. Sure do love ya, Adam. :)

Please hold your breath... Your hope and optimism is the hope I hold onto as all my hope is gone.

I love your sparkly skirt! You are amazing, Mindy! And I am also totally holding my breath. BTW the hotel we stayed at in SLC was the Sheraton.
