I wish there was a stronger phrase or word than "thank you" that I could use to let you all know how much your support and love has meant to me. I have been overwhelmed this week - wondering how I have been so blessed to have such wonderful, caring women in my life. The calls, cards, gifts, text messages and emails have helped me to go through this grieving process - reminding me that I am not alone. I have learned so much this past week. There have been so many times that my heart has gone out to a friend in need but I was so concerned about doing the wrong thing that it just paralyzed me and I didn't do anything. I am so sorry if I have not been there for one of you. I've had so many examples this week that sometimes a hug or an "I'm so sorry" is enough. Thank you for teaching me. Thank you for loving me and helping me through this. I appreciate you all and feel blessed to have you in my life.
Today I am grateful for 1. A caring doctor who was understanding, loving, provided lots of tissues and reassured me it wasn't my fault 2. My cell phone so I could talk to my husband right away 3. A wonderful husband who answered the phone and is one of the most amazing husbands in the world 4. A side door so the ultrasound technician could get me back to my room without having to go past the waiting room 5. A loving mother who listened to me cry 6. A car parked in a dark parking garage so I could sob openly without worrying I was making anyone else sad 7. A 20+ minute drive home so I could try to gain some composure before I walked in the door 8. An amazing son who came bounding up to me right as I walked in the door - showing me immediately just how truly blessed I am 9. Prayer and the comfort it gives me even though I am sad - I know things will be okay 10. Thoughtful family and friends who support us when we need it 11. The opportunity I will have to try to conceive again 12. This pregnancy - even though I am sad we lost our baby - I am still grateful for the time that I had with this baby.
