Week Thirty Six: Thankfully
A few weeks ago, when my husband and I were cleaning out our office closet, I found a number of cards people had written me over the last two and a half years. Part of me became terribly sad because I thought we would have ended this journey with a baby by now. The other part of me realized how fortunate my husband and I are to have such a supportive network of friends.
A couple of weeks ago, I received an exciting text from my esthetician who has become a great friend. She wrote that she had a fabulous gift for me and that I had to be patient. Ooooh – I was excited! I knew it must be some sort of a fertility gift. Today, I picked up my surprise – two fertility dolls from Africa. They are a riot! One is male and the other is a female. Both dolls are wooden and have detailed body parts. I am excited about these dolls because, to date, they have an unbroken record of success.
But the dolls are not the only gifts I have received through this journey. Since there are many friends and family who follow my blog, I thought this might be a fun way for me to recognize their giving nature.
Some of my Fertility Gifts:
St. Gerard’s charm and Prayer for Motherhood card – Gegie, my best friend’s mother
Couples’ Guide to Fertility (book) – Heather, my friend at work
Inconceivable (book) – Concetta, my Yoga for Fertility friend and hairdresser
Angel baby girl charm, passed down to her when she was going through a risky pregnancy – Mary, my friend at work
More than one card of encouragement and a faith holy card with fish wire charm necklace– Jeanine, my friend at work
