Something's in the water

There is an epidemic breaking out at work. It's a pregnancy epidemic! The latest addition to the pregnancy club told the other managers this week that she is expecting. That makes 4 pregnant women at work. Everyone is joking that it must be something in the water! Can I have a gallon of that water please?

It seems everywhere I look there are pregnant women. You should have seen Panera today. I think every mom in GR was there with their drooling babies and screaming toddlers. I had to practically hurdle a stroller just to get in line, and of course, I had to get behind 2 very pregnant women. Thanks. I felt like the odd person out, and it made me bitter. And I don't want to be. Right now I would so much rather be part of the moms club, sitting with the group of moms than in a seat just for two sipping my vanilla latte and reading a book. Oh, I know there is going to come a time when I would beg to have a quiet lunch alone. Not today though. Today I ache to have a baby in my arms.

Oh girl, I know! Wouldn't you love to just be drenched in that water?!?! Ha!!

I am sorry that you've had a rough day. Some days are just so hard and the only thing that helps is just to hold on to hope that it will be our turn one day. I pray that day is soon for the both of us!

Sarah, it is my heart's prayer that you and your hubby conceive soon. Just know that God does everything in His own time (so annoying to hear, but oh-so-true), and His perfect time for you IS COMING.
Back when I couldn't get pregnant, I used to joke about "running the gauntlet" at church. You literally had to walk past 3 nurseries to get to the parking lot. It was horrible for me and I left church in tears several times. But several years and lots of life changes later, I'm married to the right person and expecting a baby. I would say "finally," but I can see now why God kept saying "no" at the time. So, it happened for me at the right time, in the right way, with the right man.
Until then, also know that your friends in real life and this blog world are rooting for you and wanting to hug you and make this time of waiting easier on you! Lots of love to you, my dear!

Girls, you just know my heart. It's refreshing to be able to talk it out here in this blog world, with you. Thank you so much for giving me the space to do that and for the words that make me feel understood and comforted.

I hear you loud and clear, Sarah and will keep you in my prayers.

I struggle monthly, daily, hourly with accepting God's timing. And shamefully, I've pouted like a little child. I can understand your frustrations.

Please know I'm rooting for you and simply CANNOT wait for your annoucement. You have a lot of cheerleaders behind you!

Thinking happy thoughts for you.

One hot summer day I held my neighbors newborn daughter and inexplicably decided - instantly - that I wanted a daughter and then chose to go find her. As it turns out, on that day, she was already waiting for me, only 4 months from being born.

The beauty of life is that you can't predict who is tied your red thread, nor where and when they will enter your life. If you think of it that way, you never know, your sweet baby may already be conceived. (smile).
