Happiness and frustration.

Do happiness and frustration seem to go together? I don’t think so. But that’s what I feel I am constantly having a tug o war battle of in my life. I don’t recall a time in my life where I have ever been more frustrated with a major aspect of my life(secondary infertility, obviously). But I also don’t recall a time where I have ever been happier with my little family and the many close people around me. It’s so hard to not let that frustration affect the happy parts of our little life we have going on here in the Simmons home. There are days and days of happiness with no frustration and then something said or something done around me quickly reminds me that something is wrong with me. That we are missing something. And, wow, does that realization stink.
But guess what? I have an adorable little girl to take care of and spend time with every day. I have an incredibly supportive and patient husband to spend my life with. I have a healthy body(for the most part right) to enjoy. A home to take care of. A knowledge that our Heavenly Father loves us and answers our prayers. Life really is beautiful.
I suppose we will always have some kind of frustration in our life. But we will always have beauty in our life too. And I am always going to fight like no other to focus on the beauty.

P.S. Doesn’t Lydia have a wide range of expressions?! It’s really quite impressive.
