I got a great gift today. I occasionally post and ALWAYS read on the Nest TTTC board (Trouble Trying to Conceive...a name that doesn't quite fit the crap the wonderful women on that board have gone through). One of those ladies organized an angel exchange and had the fantastic idea to open our angels on Mother's Day. A day that you can imagine, is not an infertile's favorite day.
So this morning I got to open my beautiful angel and card from RosieDoll. First off let me just say how excited I am for RosieDoll who gets to celebrate this Mother's Day with the BEST gift...a BFP!
This angel couldn't have come at a better time. As anyone (does anyone?) who reads this blog would know the past few days have been among the hardest of my life. With my FIL's horrible prognosis, my canceled IVF and lots of other little things that seem extremely insignificant...I felt like I was given too much to handle. My angel is COURAGE. The thing I need the most right now. Thank you again RosieDoll.
As I type this I'm in my house with my parents. My mom and dad who the moment I called up crying about FIL, DH out of town and IVF, knew I needed them and by the end of the phone call were packing to drive the 6 hours to be with me. So instead of this Mother's Day being a sad one I was giving Courage and reminded what an incredible and supportive mother (and father) I have.
What a great thing.
