This too shall pass

These words were said to me tonight and I can't stop thinking about them. "This too shall pass." What a simple saying, but it gives me great comfort. 
Sometimes, when it feels like the end is so close and there's light at the end of the tunnel, life dumps even more in my lap. "This too shall pass." 
Things are getting better, work at the bux is lessening, student teaching is wonderful and my research project, well, it's getting there. I keep saying things like "things will slow down soon," or "when things aren't so busy." I am tired of telling this to people and I'm tired of not being able to do the things I want to do. "This too shall pass." 
There are so many things I want to be spending my time on, so many people I want to spend my time with, but there just seems like there is no time. "This too shall pass." 
I'm really not this negative, this is just a phase. "This too shall pass."

I love you honey. I know all of this will pass, and I'll be there until it does, and I will celebrate with you when it is. I love you.

You are not negative at all! Believe me, I'm right there with you, and it WILL pass. I love you!

Yay! You have a blog!
I think that the feelings you have right now are normal. It really will pass though- things will get better, but then, you will have new challenges. I guess the secret is finding the joy in the present. Student teaching is really hard by itself, I couldn't imagine working on your project at the same time. They say that four years into teaching is about the time we are all supposed to really feel like we are on top of our game. We'll see! Hang in there!
