Her blog this morning was an inspiration. She took the day-to-day things 'people in waiting' sometimes miss. Her blog was about an ordinary day, that housed some extraordinary things that were simple and brought her joy. I loved it.
So I sat back and thought, what are some everyday things I've been missing? I know I've been there for it all, but I haven't really 'been there' to enjoy it. So, here is a list of things I promise to take a moment to enjoy EACH and EVERY time.
*Kisses from my husband on my forehead (those are my favorite!)
*Getting a drink from Starbucks
*Hugging my dogs at the end of a long day
*Getting into a favorite pair of pajamas
*Stitch N' Bitch & Craft Nights on Tuesday nights with friends
*Getting to help a friend who is struggling with infertility
*Getting to learn from a friend who has struggled with infertility
*Coffee ice cream
*Making the 'nursery' into a 'craft room' (for now)
*Cuddling up with my husband in quiet while we both read
*Unplanned dinners out
*A friend's hug
(Yes, there are 13...)
Thank you, all you lovely ladies who have helped me along the way. I hope we can be there for each other for many years to come. Thank you Jill, Donna, Connie, Vicki, Jolana, Sarah, Laura, Danielle, Jamie, Britney, Rachel... you guys have been amazing and given me strength.
On a semi-unrelated note... I love Pinterest. Like, seriously, am so-addicted-in-love with it. I find news ways for it to cheer me up all the time. I just recently started an 'infertility love' board and I've been finding so many things that can help us through this process or things that have just made me smile. I thought I'd share some of my recent favorites on this board.
