Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness. Your sweet comments and emails. Each one of them has touched my life in a special way, and please know I truly take every word to heart. As I'm discovering, grief is such an unknown path, and your positive words mean a lot.
Some days I'm upset because life seems too "normal," then the next day I think everyone has forgotten about Reese and our pain. I can go from being so thankful for what we do have to feeling guilty over others' losses in their lives. I know I've missed out on so much of my friends' and families' lives these past seven months, but I also don't feel I have that much to give.
Balance. Boundaries. Learning more about myself and life than I ever wanted to. Seeing GOD's sufficient hand through it all - on good and hard days.
This verse popped out from the page the other day, "...encouraging you...this is the true grace of GOD. Take your stand in it!" 1 Peter 5:12
Today I'm taking the stand in believing our baby boy will be healthy, whole, and complete. The further along I get the more anxious I am becoming.
Thank you for encouraging me in the true grace of GOD.
