It’s Never As Bad As You Think

This was me 24 hours ago. Yet I crawled out of bed this morning, shaved off my 5 day beard and squeezed into my suit. The train was less busy than usual and the office was manned by a skeleton staff. And do you know what? I survived, it wasn’t as bad as I thought and, before I knew it, I was on my way home again. Mission accomplished. Well, until tomorrow anyway.

It’s never as bad as you think it’s going to be, is it?

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. I hear that, it’s always hard going back after break. 🙂 P.S. Amazon still has not approved your review of my book. I don’t know why they hold back reviews like that. Thank you again for reading it and reviewing it. I hope Amazon posts your review! God bless!

  2. This would be Jeremiah, though in his case it’s more a “5 day darkening growth on the face.” 😂 He took off the 23rd, since he gets the 24th and 25th off, and has the weekends off normally. I told him next time he takes five days off, he needs to plan something to do OUTSIDE the house because he gets mopey and bored and irritable with that much time off, sitting here. All of our family is within an hour, or we live with them, lol, so we don’t go far for any holiday. He was actually a little bit glad to go back to work last Thursday, and have something to do. It was also not as bad as he thought it was.


    1. *it was going to be, because he had something to occupy his time. Something other than our 8YO incessantly talking about LEGOs, and demanding you build things to his EXACT specifications. Benjamin has gone for 10 hours talking about LEGOs, without once drawing breath. It’s fantastic.
