Sittin' Waitin' Wishin'

March 12, 2012

I hesitate to write about really personal things on my blog - but it's therapeutic for me, so here it goes.

We just passed month 6 of trying to get pregnant - and my body played quite a mean trick on me. I thought for awhile, this might just be it, but I was wrong. I know 6 months is nothing compared to some people's struggles, and my heart goes out to them, this up and down emotional wave I'm riding, it very difficult for me. I handled it best than most months, but I still had one bad day. A day where I didn't go home, just because I didn't want to be alone.

I happen to live in a town full of young families and crawling with babies. Which some days adds salt to the wound. Zoe has started asking for a little brother - that isn't helping.

But I've reconciled for the next little while, I'm going to focus on some other things. When I was cleaning out my craft closet, I discovered enough fabric for 3 more quilts and several skirts or dresses for Zoe. I figure between those and a bookcase full of scrapbook supplies - I should be able to keep busy.

I have faith my turn will come - but patience isn't a virtue of mine, so I'm going to do my best to get better at waiting. So for now, I'm just waiting....
