Thankful

I'm not ready to talk about the events of the past 2 days yet.
I haven't even had a chance to talk to my family about it, or digest how I'm feeling.
But, I'll leave it at this; I have never been so grateful to see the words, "single live fetus" written on a report, for a friend who dropped everything and held my hand through some scary moments, or colleagues who took charge of everything no questions asked.
And I realized that sometimes a lot more is spoken in the silences I share with my husband than we could ever discuss out loud.
I realized today that I probably have to give in to the fact that pregnancy can be a little difficult and I need to let people help me more than I do.
And, for some cheerful news check out the pictures of Haley's adorable new baby boy.

Wow. Scary stuff, even though we don't know all the details.

Hopefully, everything continues to go well for you. Take it easy, and try not to worry about it; the relaxation will be good for you and the littlest one.

Tell Mike I said he should give you a foot rub tonight. ;)

My thoughts are with you even though I don't know the details of your difficult week. Hopefully continuing to share online and receiving the support from those who read and enjoy your writing will help get you through some trouble spots. Take care.
