One year ago today, we told our families of our pregnancy. Ethan proudly walked around in his "Big Brother" t-shirt and we were so happy (and now I feel niave to have been so happy and not the least bit cautious).
We got word today that two more of our friends are pregnant. That makes three couples that are due this year around the same time Shyla was due last year. Everyone is making their announcements.
Thank you for each new day of life. Thank you for friendships near and far. Please protect and guide my friends and their darling little ones. Please let them keep their niavity and their joy. God please let me be the friend I need to be and give me the words to say. I know that you and only you are healing this brokenheart. You are giving me a new understanding of how precious life is and I ask that you let me not be a person my friends fear because of my experiences. Let them feel how much I love them and want to be there with them and help me bring JOY unreserved and excitement to all of these pregnancies. Whether it be their first child or their fourth. God, you are my healer and my protector and so much more. In your holy name. Amen.
If you are one of my blessed friends carrying a little miracle, I do wish you the best and I hope you know how truely happy I am for you. I'm still working on how to express this correctly, be patient with me. I'm getting there.
