What I'm Thankful For

During this journey, it can be hard at times to be thankful but at other times, it's overwhelming easy to be. If I finish this journey without a baby, there is one thing that I've learned: there are some amazing people out there that support DH and I. I can't tell you how many times a friend, acquaintance, blog friend that I've never met has simply asked, "How are you doing?" and really meant it. Sometimes I just nod, other times those words send me to tears but the fact that someone cares enough to ask just means the world to me. So even if I've never met you, I thank you for being a part of our journey. This blog, you bloggy people out there are part of my "therapy" that is keeping me from going bananas!

I am also thankful that at "only" six months into our journey, we knew our diagnosis and that our only option was IVF. Granted, I would prefer to just get prego the old fashioned way but I'm thankful that we knew right away and had our answer. In the crazy game of IF, we do a lot of waiting and this is one thing we didn't have to wait for.

Being thankful is a challenge as we go through this process, but you're right...the people we come into contact with on this journey make it bearable. I am truly grateful for all of my IF "friends" be they live in person or online via forums or blogs. Count yourself as a blessing to at least one person!
