I feel the love

I feel so loved by all of you and by those close to me in my life. Thank you so much for all of your kind words yesterday. It was a tough day for me with a ton of tears, but I made it through and am happy that I don't have to deal with that day again for another 365 days!

I feel fortunate that a handful of my amazing friends and family remembered that I am a mother and called me, sent cards and emails, and a couple sent gifts. My mom gave me a beautiful hanging basket of flowers. My dear friend, D, left me a beautiful plant and wonderful mother's day card on my front steps yesterday. I have to say that D has been my biggest supporter through all of my IF struggles. D is always there for me! She remembers the tough days, she spends countless hours listening to me complain and cry, she supports me and cheers me on even while going through her own difficulties, and D always acknowledges Myles's days. Unfortunately D is one of us--she's battled IF for way to any years to count and at the current moment she and her dh are choosing to live child-free. D is one of the most caring, compassionate, understanding, loving people I've ever met. She is really a natural "mother" and it saddens me that she has not been blessed with a child. This is why I will never understand IF--it is so unfair! D you are an amazing, strong woman and I feel so fortunate to call you my friend! Thank you for being you!

What a great picture! It is so nice to have someone whom you can lean on and who gets it. What a gift D is to you, Niki!
