Grateful...


Sometimes I get sad thinking about what we, as a family are missing out on with the miscarriage. I especially think of my mister and how perfect the age gap would have been, and how close they were sure to be. Sometimes I cry...but then I look at my boy and I tell myself that he is all I ever need...that I have been overly blessed, to be his mom. Anytime I have a sad thought about this situation, I ALWAYS name a blessing right after...it is only fair. I have so much.
Poor boyfriend had to go in for surgery, so I have been very busy taking care of my 2 boys.
We found this old photo of our house...can you even believe it??? Seriously, it looks like the only house in Provo!
And a few more of my honey man...I love him so.

Dear Ann-
you don't know me from Adam. My name is Celeste & I think I ran across your blog via Jessica Kettle, one of my best friends. Anyway, I had two back to back miscarriages in between my little girl, almost six, and my little man, 15 months. I'm sure you have a billion people around you supporting & loving you, but I just want you to know that you are not alone. It's the suckiest suck of all the sucks to have those hopes dashed, (sheesh even saying that makes it sounds trite, it's so much more than that) but I could never have planned the timing of my children better if I'd have tried, and oh, I sure tried! :) 4 1/2 years is a big gap, but I cannot even express the joy I have everyday seeing how the extra space has shaped the people they are becoming. Don't waste time regretting the space or the time you've "missed out on". This is more about these precious kids' lives & who knows? Maybe the timing of their birth is going to be instrumental in their lives as mine was in mine? If I'd have been born a few hours later, I'd have been in the grade younger & had a whole different group of friends & my live would have been VASTLY different. Anyway, sorry to go on & on, but I just want to say that I'm very happy for you with this new little soul & I'll keep you two in my prayers.
Isn't it nice to know that there is someone, a very loving someone, whose plans for us are *always* waaaay better than the stuff we come up with on our own? ;)
