Just some thoughts

Some days are fine, some days it's hard playing this waiting game.  It's almost been 4 months since we applied for the IVF scholarship.  I wonder, with the holidays approaching, if we won't find out until after the new year?    Sometimes its difficult to see so many others around me getting pregnant and having babies because I want it to be me so badly.  I strive to keep everything in perspective though that it will all work and have faith that one day it will be my turn too. Why is so hard to just enjoy and live in the present moment? I feel like I am always focusing on the future and what I want. I need to continually remind myself to enjoy this time in life; being young and married, done with school, buying our first home etc. There is so much to be grateful for right now. I need to worry less and enjoy the many blessings right in front of me.

"I don't believe that God never meant for me not to have children.  That's not my destiny; that's just a fork in the road I'm on... Clearly, God meant for me to develop more compassion, deeper courage, and greater inner strength on this journey to resolution..." ~Author Unknown
