A year ago TODAY, I posted this note in my medicine cabinet... I could look at it each and every day, read it to myself, and know that ONE day, my prayers would be answered.
So you can imagine my heartache, when I got up this morning and read my sticky note.
The only thing I kept saying over and over this morning was...ONE DAY!
ONE DAY, I will be posting a note that says..."Thank you Lord for this baby."
And I know that on June 19, 2010 I'll reflect on how I felt in 2008 and 2009 and thank Him for all the blessings that He has given me.

I feel your pain. One year ago today I found out that I was most likely having my first m/c. It is so hard to look back and realize how slow this process is going.

HOWEVER, I do KNOW that one day, and I think it will be SOON, we will both be thanking God for that blessing!

I have the same kind of thing from July 2007. I finally put it away several months ago because I couldn't look at it anymore. That date just seemed SO long ago and it depressed me more than it helped me.

But ONE DAY we will be looking at your baby pictures posted all over your blog and I hope and pray that it is very soon!

Lianna ~ when I saw this sticky, I could not help but think of how much you have grown spiritually in that one year.

Lots of wonderful things have happened for you... lots of prayers have went up on your behalf, lots of people have graciously assisted you with your IVF fund, you have become so much closer to our GOD, you have helped others, your words have inspired many, you have encouraged those who are struggling, you have found a new church home, you have met so many wonderful people that share your pain and are walking the same path as you...and the list goes on.

I continue to pray for you daily and I long to read the post that says "we are having a baby". Well, I better hear it from you before I read it (ha). You know what I mean, friend.

Your day is near, I believe that with my whole heart!

Man, reading that note you posted that made me feel like crying, but wow...your willingness to walk forward in hope and trust (despite what we may feel sometimes) is inspiring!

I grieve with you, friend, but I also look forward to the day I'm going to rejoice with you!

While you may feel overwhelmed now, it sounds as if many good things have happened this year too. Your words inspire others daily. You have an amazing relationship with Christ and you continue to press forward in faith with the knowledge that you will have a family, that your love for your husband will continue to grow and that God is good!
