I think one of the most painful human emotions is loneliness. Infertility can create some very lonely times. The time when you are sitting in church listening to a lesson on parenthood. The time when you are at lunch with your friends trying to smile while they swap pregnancy stories. The time when you're at a baby shower wondering if your turn will ever come. The time when you hide out in your home on Mother's Day trying to forget that you don't fit in. The time when you fall in a heap on the bathroom floor because it didn't work...again. It's lonely living in a world where many people simply can't understand your pain.
Then, the reminders that I'm not alone come. The hand-made card in the mail. The sweet e-mail from a person I've never even met. The cheerful phone call. The thoughtful text. The unexpected visit or plate of cookies. The warm hug. The peaceful feeling in my heart that my Savior knows my pain and has suffered it for me.
This morning I logged on to my e-mail to find dozens upon dozens of messages, each one containing words of encouragement and hope. Words simply cannot describe what this means to me.
Kari, over at Ucreate wrote the sweetest post about Spencer and me. I am still in awe that she took time out of her busy day to do something so kind for us.
Thank you, thank you sweet friends. Thank you for reminding me that I am never alone! Thank you for caring! Thank you for your support! Words truly seem inadequate to describe how much this means to me. You are amazing, and I am very humbled to be the recipient of your kindness. You are my angels.
