This won’t be long, probably one of the shortest posts I’ll write for a very long time…since I am incapable of telling a short story.
Last week today my heart was broken anew because a dear friend shared with me that she was 6 months pregnant…I should have been 6 months along too. Tonight my husband is out celebrating with a friend who’s amazing girlfriend is now pregnant. You know what? I’m really ok with that, in fact I am elated with this news! So what’s different with her news verses my friend’s new from last week? It may not be fair, but there is a difference.
Last week, I discovered my friend is where I hoped to be right now. Enjoying the “joys” of pregnancy, but it is impossible, apart from a shear miracle of God, for me to be 6 months along. With my other friend, who has only discovered this week that she is with child, I still hold onto to a bit of hope. I can be where she is right now. I have that hope that soon I too will be with child, whether or not that is God’s plan is another story. I will be patient, that is my only choice after all and I can find peace in knowing that God’s plan far exceeds my own. His timing has never failed humanity and it will never fail me either. I’m really in a good place, I’m not upset, in fact I feel good :)!
Normally I would have a fitting picture or video to go along with this post, but I am typing this on my iPhone and have no gumption to add any frills tonight. I AM happy for my friend, just a bit too tired to put in much more effort…after all I’m usually in bed by 10:00pm and it’s now pushing 11:20pm! Perhaps I’ll add something tomorrow, but most likely I won’t bother, sometimes simplicity is the best.
Good night my friends, to GOD be all glory, honor and praise!!
