When your whole day goes kinda rotten, you get to mid-evening and ask God, "Alright, what else do you have coming? The other shoe has to drop sometime, you gonna let it fall now so I can just get it all over with?"
And then He takes your symbolically Pepto-Bismol Icescream Sundae of a day and throws the cherry on top of it.
Joe broke up with me on a walk later in the evening.
And that's all I'm going to say about it. This chapter is closed.
I fibbed. I'm a writer, chapters don't close in our world. I will probably rehash it once in a while. Respectfully, of course. I mean, come on, we had good times. Joe's a great guy. I still have photos to share from some of our adventures!
There are good memories and life lessons embedded in this experience and to back me up, Spencer W. Kimball once said, "No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude, and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God."
