Nurture your hopes. Hold them close and understand that they are seeds of good things to come.

I often find it hard to understand why this is the hand I was dealt. I ask myself why and every once in a while I tell myself that I am learning. I am learning new lessons all the time. I am learning patience, hope, faith, pain, anger and yearning. I tell myself that things happen for a reason. I think one of the reasons that I am going through all of this is to learn more about friendship and support. I have met some of the most amazing women through this journey and a couple of them have become my friends away from the message board.

Today I received a care package from a very special friend of mine, Annie. I have been having a rough patch with the cancelled IUI and then having less than stellar response to the injectables. This care package made me smile and cry. The book that she sent me is so thoughtful and so profound. The title of this post was a quote from the book and there are many more to come =) Thank you so much, Annie, you really brightened my day and made me realize that if nothing else I have made a wonderful friend.


  1. Aww! I love care packages, especially thoughtful ones from good friends =)
