Life just Happens



In the end everything will be alright, and if it's not alright, then it's not the end.

This quote was given to us in church this sunday and I just loved it. Little did I know that it would come into play in my life immediately after, and that I would be living it. Yesterday morning my boss came into work and informed me that he would no longer be keeping this office and that we had about 2 1/2 weeks to find a new place and get moved out. He also let me know that because of the way business has been going he was cutting me down from 8 hours a day to 4. That was a lot to take in, in about one sentence. So I waited until he left, cried a little bit, talked to Ginny, Mom, and my husband, and realized that it wasn't the end. I just needed to keep on keepin' on because everything was not alright yet. Luckily yesterday was a holiday for schools so I did not have to go to practice, so Albert his sisters and I, spent the rest of the day (after my new 4 hour day) searching for a new place to live, contemplating a new job for me, and reporting back to mom. We found some things that sound like they would be perfect, but if those don't work out we are going to continue looking, we also realized that in order to make any sort of payment with out my income, we would have to sell my truck. So that is something we are working on also. I am very excited because we are going to the temple on Saturday, and I look forward to the opportunity to be as close to my Heavenly Father as I can possibly be, so that I can be comforted, and we can hopefully figure out the reason for all of this. I am grateful for a loving family both Shaver and Davis that so willingly came to our aid. I love all of you and can not imagine my life without you.


Just remember...
In the end everything will be alright, and if it's not alright, then it's not the end.

Love the ever Moving Shavers.

Oh, sorry Bizz.
These times really suck, but I've found that sometimes the things in life that cause us the most distress and frustration are the best changes. Mostly I think it's because that's when we are willing to listen to what Heavenly Father is telling us for the future. I'm sure that whatever is coming your way is important for your family and your little baby. Also, I expect a call next time miss. Love you.

Liz - I feel you. It's amazing how life's curves come at you from nowhere when you feel least prepared. I can tell you that this is the time and an opportunity to find out what you are made of. As life continues for you guys - these things will happen but with little kids around you watching and learning how to react to stress and ups and downs. What will we teach them? I try and remember this when crap happens - what do I want Addie to remember from this horrible day? Tears and yelling, swearing and pouting. No - I want her to remember determination and faith and reliance on the spirit and Heavenly Father. Life is unpredictable, we don't have to be. Love you - good luck.

And you were just loving this house.... Well I think that everything happens for a reason.
maybe you need to find a cute little rental somewhere else. You never know what the reason is but your a strong woman married to a strong man. THIS too will pass. Leave me know what I can do for you!
Love you

I'm so sorry, Lizzie. Isn't it nice how everything crumbles at once. One comfort, at least we know we are strong enough to make it through whatever comes our way. I love your quote and have already recited it to myself many times. It might be my new motto. Hopefully you can look back at this time one day in the future and roll your eyes to Albert and say "remember when..." Love you!

P.S. I made your mac n cheese yet again last night, and it was a HUGE hit.

Liz, as your sister, Connie, recently said, "Why are people surprised when life is hard, because it is supposed to be hard" I say, yes, that is how it is supposed to be. Katie and Scott were right on target with their comments, too.

By the way, who is the big orange kid with big ears in the photo?

Love, Dad

I am amazed again (as I have been over and over with you, Miss Liz) at your remarkable and Heavenly maturity...wow...like Joseph of old...leading the way. I also thank you for the quote...I've already shared it! And...how magical the wisdom of the family that surrounds you in love...life's stresses are churning out INCREDIBLE ADULTS (who just happen to be my children!!) Speaking of sharing, how about a picture of your prize winning Jack-o-lantern!!?? Excited to hear updates...Love, mom
