If this whole ordeal has taught me nothing else...

1. This blog really can be a saving grace. The ability to put my feelings down in words and reflect on them is such therapy for me.

2. I do have the most amazing support system. I would like to thank each one of you for the emails, comments and prayers you have sent out to me. They mean the world to me and truly do make a difference.

3. Negative people and negative thoughts and negativity in general have absolutely ZERO place in my life. I don't need them, I don't benefit from them and I won't let the negativity of others hold any value on how I view myself, my marriage or my mental health. I feel like this blog has been overcome with negativity lately and that is NOT what it was intended to be. The devil works in funny ways and this is one thing I won't let him even dabble in.

4. My husband is amazing and is constantly willing to go to bat for his wife. He protects me, supports me and loves me to my core. You can't ask for much more than that.

5. My dogs don't like it when Momma is upset. At All. They circle the room growling, then jump up into my lap and snuggle. Pure, judgement free love.

6. There is nothing that 2 Extra Strength Tylenol's and a hot shower, followed by a long nap won't cure. Therapy at it's finest.

7. Being the bigger person always makes you feel better at the end of the day.

NOW- Since so many of you have been so selfless in your prayers for me, now it's my chance to give back. What can I pray for you about? Leave a comment or shoot me an email (my addy is on the right side of the screen), even if you have never commented before, let me pray for you.

God Bless each one of you.

***EDIT- I have opened comments up to anyone, meaning you do not have to have a Blogger account to comment. Please respect this. Rude, negative or unnecessary comments will hit the trashcan. Thanks!***

Um, you could pray for me to have another snow day tomorrow?!?!

Just kidding! I think you are a fabulously strong young lady and the people in your life that are causing you grief can suck it. No nice way to put it. You have too many others that love you to stress about the ones that are crazy!!!

Hope your Wednesday is just as fab as you!

I have been following your story from the bump and just want to say that you are so true with you are feeling, there is no one that can say your feelings are wrong...just work through them as best you can. I went through the same thing at about the same time. It was the most horrible thing I have ever dealt with! It does leave a hole in your heart. My prayers are with you and your feelings and just know it will/does get better and you ARE better because of it.

As I was dealing with my grief/sorrow/guilt not just 1 or 2 but 5 of my co-workers announced they were pregnant. That really put me over the edge, but little by little I bounced back and I got pregnant again. It is so scary, but I am praying for a "sticky" baby and a healthy baby. I know you will too when the timing is perfect (that is what I kept telling myself, at least).

I hope you have a great day and stop by any time :)
