200th Post

Holy crap. 200?? Another example of how much time has passed and still no baby. It seems like just yesterday I was writing my 100th post, which happened to be the day I received a BFN from my first injectibles cycle. Awesome.

And now I'm staring surgery in the face and possibly the start of IVF. Insert big nervous gulp here.


I wanted this 200th post to be special. Inspirational. More than just a number. But I just couldn't figure out what to write. And then I decided I would leave you all with a quote...

Every year at my work, during The Week of the Young Child, each child and staff member decorates a quilt square (a small square card). Most of them include pictures and/or quotes. And then they are all laminated and strung together to look like a quilt. It's actually very special and it's hung in the hallway all year long. This year on my square I put a wedding picture and the following quote...

When the world says, "Give up," Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."

And that's what we're gonna do. We're gonna keep trying...

On my way home from work today there was a car in front of me with a license plate that read "HLF FLL." "Half Full" for anyone confused there for a moment :)

I refuse to look at my glass (my life) and say it's half empty. Even though our baby isn't with us yet, we are going to count our blessings and believe that things are still "HLF FLL." And when we finally have our baby in our arms, the glass will be...

Overflowing.

Well, your post was inspirational and a good reminder that my life is half-full. You're totally right though when we have a baby it will definitely be overflowing. I wonder how to make that into a license plate...lol. Congrats on the 200th post!!

I finally figured out how to comment!

Happy 200th...it's quite the milestone and I hope you're still proud of it, even if you haven't quite reached your goal yet. I think you've done a lot of great things and come so far already.

What a beautiful quote..that's the second one from your blog that I've written down for me to remember.

Keeping the license plate signs alive...I love it :)

Love the quote - I have a small Hallmark book of Hope quotes (Tailored to people battle breast cancer), and I literally read it all the time when I was going through the darkness of infertility. The quote on my blog header is from it. Anyway, happy 200 posts! Hang in there, girl - exciting posts are to come:0.
