What a year....

The year 2011 was filled with so many great things, and some not so great things. I learned so much about myself, and gained invaluable wisdom, made some wonderful friends, and everlasting memories...Celebrated, mourned, and survived, yet another year...

I am just in awe at how life works out...3 years ago, I would have told you that you were NUTS if you had said this is what my life would look like today. Things can change so much, at the drop of a dime...you never know what is going to come around the bend.

Here we are 10 months post a tubal reversal I never thought would even happen, and with a NEW opportunity every month to try for another miracle baby...and this year, I am going at it with a new mind set....A new year...A new season...New HOPE, and renewed faith... Despite our struggles and losses, I am thankful for this second chance...Thankful for the possibility that this new year holds...Thankful that my Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome is long gone... Thankful for the beautiful family we already have...

I could spend the next year bitter and sad about the babies we lost, or that it is taking us so long, when others are already having their babies...I could wallow in my self defeat, and stay stuck in a funk... but where would that leave me? certainly not anywhere I want to be...But I admit, I spent too much time in that place in the last year...

 I choose this year, to overcome  the funk and to stay positive, hopeful, and full of unrestrained JOY no matter what things "seem"...

  1. Beautifully spoken! I hope that you get your stick bean soon! I have put off my reversal for two years, cause I was afraid it wasnt the right decision because it was taking such a large amount of money from my family.But on the other hand I wantedto do it soooo bad! I recently found out I have thyroid problems as well as PCOS, and I cannot help but wonder if the PCOS could have been avoided if I had only went ahead and done the reversal asap. This Feb/March however I do plan to go ahead with it if at all possible, and I am over the moon about it! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, and helping me to feel more confident in this being a good desision!
