As if I didn’t know it already, I’ve got some good people in my life.


When I got home Sunday night I discovered a FedEx envelope with my name on it. I opened up and immediately started crying (happy tears). Three of my girlfriends had gone in together and gotten me a gift certificate to the spa I’m already going to this Friday for my birthday.

Our mailbox also ┬áincluded sweet birthday cards and even just some “Thinking of You” cards (and I cried again).

Yesterday when I got home from work there was a sweet homemade card that made me teary. And when I walked in the door there was a package that basically reduced me to more tears. (I’m emotional – can you tell?).

Becky, my fellow infertility warrior, sent me one of the most thoughtful and amazing care packages I’ve ever received. It wasn’t for my birthday (although she did add in that note), but rather it was for the loss of the IUI, the struggle that Matt and I are going through and her way of saying she’s there for us even though we live so far away from each other. At this point I’ll probably cry whenever I do get to meet Becky.

One of the things Becky gave me was a Key necklace that has the word BELIEVE engraved on it. It was a necklace that had been given to her and she passed it on to me. She wants me to BELIEVE, in whatever I need the message to be.

And it couldn’t have come at a better time.

I am trying to Believe every day. To keep my head up, and that key is a very wonderful and visual reminder.


Also, in honor of National Infertility Awareness Week I’m over on Becky’s blog today talking a little bit about what Infertility means to me.




happy wednesday!
