Today was a rough day for more than one reason, some won't be discussed. But I was woken with bad news. My dear sweet friend, K, lost her brother last night. I'm not sure of details, but I know that it's a shock and devastating, and he was young. Please pray for their sweet family. K has been so supportive of me over the past few years with my fertility issues, and I don't think I can ever repay the friendship that she has given me, so I desperately want to reach out and be able to 'fix' this for her. My friend, J, and I discussed this morning that we are doers! We want to find a way to 'help' her, just sitting by makes us crazy. But what can we do? So, I ask for prayers for her, as I know her brother meant the world to her, and that her heart must be broken in a million pieces.
It puts life into perspective for me. I wouldn't trade my sister for a baby. I really really really want a baby, but I wouldn't trade my sister to have one. So, today I'm especially grateful for my sister and super sad that she's too far away to hug. There is nothing that can replace a sibling and the loss that would remain, the hole in my heart that would be there would never heal. I'm sad for K!
Wife, daughter, sister, now mother after infertility. I continue to struggle with infertility and the scars that will always remain. I am the mother of two angel babies in heaven, and one miracle on earth!
