My dear mom and dad left Ohio today.  I tried so hard to hold back tears because Brian’s family had just arrived and I didn’t want to make a scene. I almost made it until I saw my dad from behind the windshield as they backed out of our driveway… he had a half smile, lips pursed and was nodding to me in approval.  As if to tell me that everything was going to be alright. That he was proud of me. That I was enough. That he believed I could handle my world without them.

I hugged the new baby I was holding and ran up to my room and just started crying.

This experience reminded me of a loving Heavenly Father who has allowed us to come to earth and experience life. He knew we would face trials beyond our capacity and He knew we would experience joy beyond measure.  Just as it was hard for my own dad to say goodbye, knowing I’d be left to deal with so much alone, I am sure it was the same for our Heavenly Father.  I know that we are never alone and that we can be lifted up in our trials if we seek Him.  As we turn to the Savior in faith, I imagine a loving Father in Heaven looking down on us with a half smile, lips pursed, nodding in approval. As if to tell us that everything is going to be alright. That he is proud and that we are enough.

Never forget — you are always enough.

  2. Thank you for sharing! This was so encouraging. It’s a great reminder of God’s love and affirmation as I’m facing trials that feel too big to handle alone.

  3. Thank you for that! I need this reminder occasionally… especially when I’m stretched thin at work and feel like I need 20 hour energy to get through the remainder of the night at home. Don’t get me wrong, I have the most amazing and gracious husband that does more for me than I deserve but sometimes I feel like I can’t handle this crazy ridiculous life and that I’m not adequate for my family. So, thanks for the reminder. 🙂

  4. Thank you for sharing this, Abby! Your words brought me to tears and they are specially important to me today as I decided to accept a new job offer yesterday and I’m so unbelievably scared.
    But, I know our Heavenly Father is with me as He is with you and your family.
    Thank you so much!
    Sending you lots of love all the way from Brazil! ❤️❤️

  5. Just wanted to tell you thanks for your sweet spirit! My 9 year old daughter has some very serious anxiety. I downloaded your songs of iTunes and found her listening to daughter of a king. She knows it by heart and it brings tears to my eyes to watch her sing it, knowing she is truly listening to the words. Thank you !! ! Also My 3 year old wants to listen to abide with me tis even tide. Seriously you got a voice girl!!

  6. I absolutely love this! Thank you so much for sharing. I’m getting ready to move away from family again, and this reminded me that it is all going to be okay, not necessarily easy, but I can do it 🙂 OH and you are so beautiful!
