Due Date


When I flipped the calendar page yesterday, this stuck out like a sore thumb. I can honestly say I hadn't thought about it for a very, very long time. As look at it today, I must admit is stings just a little. But, I am very thankful that a little one is not entering our world of chaos right now, no insurance, job loss looming-- etc. Heavenly Father obviously has better foresight than we do. I hope this doesn't sound to, materialistic. I know that if I were having a baby right now everything would work out okay, I just know it would be pretty hard and not very fun-- stressful. Sorry to be Debbie Downer :( Tomorrow will be a fun and exciting tutorial on ribbon ornaments. See you then :D

I'm so sorry, Sarah, I was reminded of the sting of miscarriage again today and shed a few tears at the Stake Service activity. It helps to know that we have some little spirits who were too perfect for this world waiting for us and cheering us on.

I look forward to another fun tutorial by the talented Sarah!!

When my miscarriage due date rolled around, I had mixed emotions. But like you said, Heavenly Father sees the greater picture because I don't know how I could have taken care of a toddler, a newborn, move across the country, find a place to live, and be so newly far away from everyone I knew and love.

Your cute family is in my prayers. Love you!

Ironic that you posted this. I just saw a very large pregnant lady due any day and was thinking that I too would have been due about this time. And I hadn't thought about it for a long time either. I wonder if that means that we are healing?

I can only imagine ... you are one strong girl, Sarah!!!

I am so sorry. There is definitely a season for everything and it says a lot about you to handle it all as well as you do. You are one amazing person, Sarah, and I'm sorry I don't know you better than I do. Seriously.

My prayers are with you!
