May came and went and so did life
Jason and I decided that we were going to try and expand our family in April. We became successful and were so excited to announce to family Mother's Day weekend of our little peanut.
Two days after the announcement came a fearful dreaded event that I never imagined I would go through .....we miscarried the precious growing baby.
I won't forget that day...ever! My dad came right to my house and sat with me til my mom and grandma could get there. When he came into the door, he gave me a long hug and said..."The Lord is the giver and taker of life...He gives and takes away" That in itself made me feel like I didn't cause the miscarriage, but it was God's plan for our family. I had to be content and okay with it.
It's been three months and it has taken me sometime to be "okay" with it. Not that I will ever be....but I know the more I share this pain that I have experienced, the more I realize there are many other women who have walked that same road.
I trust that the Lord is the giver and taker of life, and trust that when he sees fit he will give us another little peanut to love and be apart of our family!
