33 weeks and Happy Memorial Day!!

Our little peanut is growing up!!!  And it is happening way too fast!!!  We had a really nice Memorial Day weekend just staying home and visiting with family at my Mom's. 

We went to brunch on Saturday with one of Sweetness' old bosses and his wife.  They are struggling with infertility as well and unbeknowgnst to me she has been reading my blog and has gotten encouragement here.  That makes me so happy because that is exactly what I wanted this blog to be about.  I talked to her for along while abut where they are and about what there next steps are.  They are getting ready to start another IVF this week.  As I saw her eyes well up with tears, my heart broke and the Lord gently reminded me again of how far He has brought us and where I was in that pain.  And that I owe it to Him to reach out and help those still aching and still waiting.  So Sweetness and I are praying fervently for them and asking God to bless them with their heart's desire.

I am so happy I am able to see now a purpose to all that pain and to be able to help some other ladies going through the same thing I went through.  I felt SO ALONE when I was in it.  I thought i was the only one experiencing this, and come to find out I am just one of millions of women aching to have a child.  I feel blessed indeed.
And as we celebrated Memorial Day yesterday, I also felt an enormous sense of gratitude for the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice for the protection of this country so that we can lay our heads down in peace at night.  Thank you seems so inadequate.  But Its all I can say- Thank you.  From the bottom of my heart.
