Suzy, over at Not a Fertile Myrtle, had this on her blog and I thought it was a nice little check in.  I obviously failed BIG time at the photo a day challenge, but still looking for ways to be patient during the wait to start IVF...so here goes.  (if you haven't visited Suzy's blog -- you should!)

I am…  a caring, empathetic, unconditional loving, often naive, sometimes pessimistic, woman who loves to take care of others.

I know… someday I will be a Mom -- and an awesome one at that!

I want… to go on vacation RIGHT NOW!

I wish… noone had to suffer from infertility.

I fear… the loss of those close to me -- family and friends.

I feel… anxious and vulnerable right now.

I smell… the remnants of dinner; dryer sheets.

I hear… Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on tv, the cat snoring next to me (love that sound!)

I wonder… why people who will be great, loving parents are struggling with infertility.

I believe… in the powerful combination of Eastern and Western medicine to overcome struggles and that test results are just numbers, but God is the one in control and miracles do happen everyday.

I sing… when I am happy or sad, but generally when I am alone (I don't need to subject anyone else to the torture of listening)

I cried last… in the last few days.  A family member of my hubby's is dying and I am really having a hard time with it -- and it strikes me at unexpected times, generally not a full-on cry, but simple tears.

I can usually be found… taking a walk outside on beautiful days like today.

I am happy… when our cat lays on my chest to nap and when I spend time with those I love.

What are {you} today?


  1. I am blessed to know you!

    Love your list. We have lots of things in common right now.

    Hoping and praying your appointment goes well tomorrow!

  2. FX for the appointment. I love your list, I think I might have to have a go at that myself.

  3. I want to go on vacation right now too! To escape all this for a while.

    I am very sorry to hear about your family member. I know that there are few words that can comfort during times like this, and my thoughts are with you and your family.

  4. Thanks everyone for your kind words! It means more than you know!
