Overdue business

So I said I would spare you the details on why we're waiting, but some of you might be wondering. Chris asked that we wait a little longer. He says he is not ready. I have a feeling that he is really scared of another miscarriage, and well I am too. And since I am his wife, and I respect him and it's really important for us to make these decisions together, we're waiting.

Back a few posts ago I talked about
symbolism and what things mean to me. I also mentioned that I needed to upload some photos, one of a water lily. I was reminded today that I never posted those photos when I got a very special gift from a very special woman. My very thoughtful friend Jen (or as we call her on our message board) sent me a wonderful gift for "Mother's Day". It was a lotus blossom tea light candle holder. It's beautiful and I can't decide if I want to put it on my desk where I will see it every day, or in the bedroom... wink wink. Thank you JJ for the most wonderful gift! And here are those pictures!

This is the path that Chris and I traveled down. It was a beautiful day and we were the only ones on the path. It was so quiet and serene, yet we had no idea where the path lead or where it would take us. So is our trying to conceive journey. We never know quite where it will lead us, but it can be beautiful at times. And even if the road gets rough, we will get to the end together.

And this is the water lily I saw. The pond was small but this lily looked so tiny in the dark water. Yet the blossom's white was so white and the yellow so yellow. It was absolutely beautiful. And it conquered the muck and the mud, pierced the surface of the water and bloomed big and bright.

I'm glad that you got the gift! Like I said in the card.... I just HAD to send it to you!

Much Love!
