Feelin' Free

That's how I'm feeling right now. Free. At least for a little while, I don't have to think about TTC. I don't have worries of miscarriage. I'm not having testing done. I'm not scheduling a surgery. I don't have multiple Dr. appointments.

I want to take full advantage of this time. I've already been thinking of spring and my garden and the flowers I want to plant. I've been thinking of Baby and me sitting out on that deck that I want to have built in a few months. I've been thinking about all the new recipes I want to try and all the canning I want to do with my mom and sister this summer.

For four years I was on a difficult journey to having my baby. Now she's finally here, and I'm so very thankful for her. I'm also thankful that I feel like I can finally rest & relax for a while.

To tell you the truth, I've already been thinking about having more children in the future. But for now I'm just going to sit back and enjoy where I am.

I hope that wherever you are in your journey today that you can take some time to enjoy your life. Even in the past 4 years, despite all the difficulties, I do have some good memories of canning with my mom and sister, visiting my best friends out of town or having them visit me at my home, going on little trips with Jay, working in my little garden. Those things helped keep me sane. Every one of those lovely memories was something that helped me keep my joy and continue to enjoy living.

My heart still goes out to all of you who are in the midst of the battle of infertility or recurrent pregnancy loss. I have rejoiced with you and cried with you and prayed for you. Know that you are not forgotten!!

May God help you on your journey. May you draw close to Him. And may you not lose joy and hope!

Birdie! Oh my gosh - please accept my very belated congratulations! My computer crashed a few months ago and it took awhile to get a replacement... and then my husband had to have back surgery and that was another ordeal to say the least! (He is not a good patient! For awhile I had three babies to take care of! Ha!)

Anyway - I have missed following you and seeing how things were going... but I am thrilled to find this good news and see how happy you are. Please take good care of yourself and give that sweet baby girl a kiss from me. I hope to be checking back more regularly now that I'm up and running again!

Yes, indeed! This is the perfect time for you to relax and put all of the thoughts/worries/concerns about future fertility way up high on a shelf. Sounds like you have some lovely things planned for the spring and summer. Enjoy!
