So you'd think that since I have nothing to do but lay around in my bed, that there would have been all sorts of blog posts from the last 3 days! Nope! But, amazingly enough, I filled up my days! I've read books, watched some movies, watched some tv, and just vegged! My Betsy has definitely kept me company these past few days, enjoying her bedrest too! My dad has been my lunch buddy each day, and a wonderful friend even brought over a delicious dinner last night! Thanks Michelle!
The last couple of days I have been completely amazed by the love and support of complete strangers, my "lurkers"! I know a lot of people in my real life who read my blog, but the amount of love and prayers, emails and comments I'm getting from people I've never met is absolutely wonderful! I love hearing from those who I don't know, but have been following my life! (Crazy to think that anyone would even be interested in my little old life!) How amazing it is to me that through this blog, I am able to connect with people from all over the world--literally! I'm so glad I live today with this technology available! I know it isn't reality to think I will get to meet all of you, but I would love to actually meet you someday!
I was reading on a blog of a fellow mommy of babies in heaven (Love you Marie!) how much the blogging world has meant to her in this "new" life. The new life being the time after we lost our babies. I completely agree with her, and actually can look back at this past year and a half as an amazing blessing. I honestly know that my reaction, or even my life for that matter, would not be what it is today, without the support from other people who have experienced the trials of infertility, the heartbreak of losing your babies, or even from those who have lifted me up in prayer through these times. I honestly feel, through all of these experiences, that the love and support of my family, my friends, and my 'in-the-computer' friends, God has restored to me true joy. Right after we lost Jonathan, I didn't feel happiness--my heart was breaking--but I asked God to give me joy again. I really feel like He has, and I'm so thankful! And much of it has to do from the support and prayers from you all!
Okay, so I guess I'm rambling a bit today. =) I've had too much time just laying here, without anything going on, to ponder. I just wanted to say thank you so very much!
...Off to another day of being lazy, like a princess perched on a bunch of pillows with my dog by my side...hope you can do something exciting for me today!
And, if you are a lurker (hate that word, but I'm one too on many amazing women's blogs!), drop me a comment. I'd love to hear who you are!
Have a wonderful Friday!!
