An Empty House...

It's been so wonderful to have my parents here with us for the last 6 weeks. Most people wouldn't understand it when I say I will really miss them when they move into their new house next week, but I really will!! And I can honestly say that Justin is going to miss them as well--amazing from a son-in-law, huh?! He's truly wonderful!! I'm not looking forward to an empty house again! Having them here, cooking and eating dinner together, going to work with my mom every day have all been so much fun! I know it won't be the same, but I'm so glad they are going to be very close-by!!

I just haven't felt much like blogging lately, and I'm tired of writing blogs with excuses!! =) I guess I need to just not feel guilty, and blog when I feel like it. I know you'll understand!

We did another round of shots last month without any success. I didn't feel like blogging about it as we did it, because I was hesitant to have to report a bad outcome again. It was REALLY hard for a few days after I found out it didn't work, and it took me a while to get back to my normal (what is normal anymore though?!) self or even think about wanting to post about it. We talked to the dr. and have been told that all looks good, even though we didn't get the result we wanted. He also told us we have 2 more tries of this before having to go in a different direction--IVF or adoption. It scares me to be so close to having to make that decision, but I guess it is good to have a timetable, because with the crazy emotions that go with the hope of it happening for me, I would probably just keep trying and trying and trying. And honestly--I don't know how much more I can handle emotionally right now. So all that to say I'm praying that our next try will be the one--it just has to be.

Aly, we have continued to lift you and Justin up in prayer....And Ryley prays for you ALL the time, too! On the way to school, before bed, at meals.... :-) You are on our hearts constantly.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick. But...His mercies are new EVERY morning! And that's what we pray for you - that His grace is sufficient, that He gives you peace, and that someday very soon He will give you the desires of your heart.

It's been a long, hard journey, but the story isn't over yet! We love you guys so much, and we believe that your house will not be empty for very long.... :-)

I will be praying for you and your husband. Jake and I will undergo IVF for the 2nd time this summer. I am hoping that God will bless us with at least one healthly baby. If you ever need anyone to talk to you can call me!

I was wondering if you were going to participate in the March of Dimes this year? If you are let me know we have formed a Team Angel Jaggears and will be walking to honor our 3 Angels that we lost last year. I would love to meet you if you are at the one in Ft. Worth. Take care and have a blessed day!!
