Gotta have faith...

...that everything will work out. May not be the "plan" I had, but I have faith that one way or another we will have a baby.


Found this quote on a very special blog :)

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." ~Martin Luther King, Jr.


I like getting mail. I'm not referring to bills or things of that nature, but good mail. As in letters, cards or packages from friends and family. I love to send them too. It's just such a nice surprise to open the mailbox and get a rose amongst the thorns. Bill...bill...bill...package from friend containing OPKs and pregnancy tests!!...bill..bill. See what I mean? :) And I got a "rose" today! My friend mailed me a bunch of OPKs and pregnancy tests that she didn't need anymore! A win for both of us! She has her second baby on the way and I am so grateful to receive these much needed items :) I already put one to use. A negative OPK but that's okay, I think I'm a late ovulator anyways. Today is CD 12...

Still not feeling great. My ear is really bothering me, so I think I'm going to have hubby put some drops in. My friend used to work at a pediatricians office and she gave us some sample ear infection drops awhile ago. Hey-I won't say no to free drugs. :) Well, you know what I mean...

Has anyone watched "Who do you think you are?" The show where celebrities trace back their family history?? It's so interesting! And totally makes me want to find out who my ancestors are...

That is GREAT mail. :) A Blogger friend of mine who finally got her BFP sent me a bunch of OPKs the other week as well and it totally made my day. May this be the last cycle that we need them either!!!

Stopping over from ICLW from #63 & #153. I have faith you will have a baby some day too. And same goes for me. Its hard sometimes to believe it will ever happen, but it will. How nice of your friend to send you OPKs and HPTs :-) I'm at home in bed today with a cold, staying home from work. And I'm rather enjoying it ... Hope you feel better soon.

Getting mail is so fun. No one does it anymore. And opks/pregnancy tests?? Even better! Hoping you see a + soon...(opk AND pregnancy test!)

I love surprises in the mail! That stuff costs a small fortune, too. I bet you felt like you hit the jackpot! ICLW 149

I love OPKs if only because I get to see two lines on a stick I peed on. I also love mail - that's why I signed up for a website called Postcrossing. It's mail from strangers - but I think it's fun. Good luck in your journey! (Found you via ICLW)

Happy ICLW week! I love getting fun mail. Especially when its a postcard from Starbucks for a free drink. How sweet that your friend would send you such a great package.

I hope your ears feel better, and yes free drugs are hard to pass up.

I hope they do the trick for you and you are able to pass them along again!
