Never thought I would cry over Chocolate Cake...

A blogging friend of mine, recently wrote THIS POST at the blog We Are All Mothers.  It is an amazing allegory that beautifully and explains the feelings that one may experience in the journey of infertility and miscarriage.  And then, the feelings of finally receiving your "dessert".

(Christne: I have a hard time posting commnents on your blog for some reason, but I wanted to tell you that your words are soo beautiful!)

thank you so much for posting this. It is truly a beautiful expression of this whole journey. I printed it off and am excited to take it to my hubby because I think it will help him understand a little better of what this feels like from a woman's stand point. I also like how the husband didn't notice right away that they hadn't received their dessert and he wasn't as distressed by it. I feel this same way about my husband. I don't think he's quite noticed yet or fully understands that our dessert hasn't shown up and what that feels like to me. It also gives me hope though that he will notice and no matter what "Life is still good" because the "baker" knows and loves me! :)

Ohhhh- Thank You so much for liking my allegory and for the shout out!!! :0) It's a little hard for me to put my raw feelings out there for everyone to read, but it's just wonderful when I have such amazing infertility- sisters supporting me! Your blog has helped me so much (and even prompted me to start mine)! As a result I have been able to meet such sweet and courageous ladies. How will I ever repay you?!? I wonder why my comment section isn't working... if you ever figure it out will you email me and let me know? I wonder if it's my playlist? Anyhow, THANK YOU again!!! I see you only have a few weeks left of your pregnancy.....OHHHHH- SO EXCITING!!!! I can't wait to hear the news when she comes!
:0) It's such an amazing experience and I am just thrilled for you!!!
