So, like I said, we went to a meeting.
It was at an agency we've never worked with about a topic of which we had little to no knowledge. The meeting was extremely helpful in illustrating options and helping us form new expectations. But, honestly, we left feeling a little less hopeful and a little more disappointed.
The next morning, sitting in the quiet of my living room, I started getting a little weepy. The familiar sting of baby fever laced with infertility started to creep up on me and I thought,
"This is not how I thought it would be."
Meaning, this isn't the way I thought life would be.
And then, thankfully, suddenly a wave of reality washed over me.
WHO IN THE WORLD HAS HAD LIFE TURN OUT THE WAY IT WAS GOING TO BE?! GET OVER IT.
So, I snapped out of it. Really, somehow (itwastheholyspirit) I did.
Sometimes I need a mental kick in the butt. Or a real one. Feel free to give me a real one the next time you see me.
