Hi friends, I'm just stopping in to say thank you. I finished my exams yesterday, so I finally have a chance to sit down and write a quick post about the ways in which you all have blessed us since we shared the news about our miscarriage.
There have been countless prayers said. Meals delivered. Flowers and cards sent. Phone calls and text messages to check up on us. I don't know how we will ever repay you all for your kindness and generosity during one of our most challenging months ever. I'm used to being the one serving others, and it has been so hard but so amazing to step back and let ourselves be served. I should probably learn how to do more of that.
Regarding all of the sweet comments on our instagram and my blog post, thank you. I'm not sure I have it in me to answer all of them, but please know that they have all been read and greatly appreciated. We have found so much comfort in your words. I know I have sucked at keeping up this blog but I'm so grateful for all of you that have stuck it out with me.
I feel as if I have had to put off grieving fully until my exams are over, but now that they're over I'm surprisingly feeling so much peace about our miscarriage. I'm so hopeful that God has a great plan for us. I'm sad that our plans aren't going to happen as we had thought they would, but I'm hopeful that means there are better things to come. I'm choosing to be joyful in the midst of loss and pain because that's all I know how to do right now. All I know how to do is trust that Jesus is enough, and seriously, I have felt that so much in the last week or so.
All of that just to say THANK YOU. You all mean more to me than you will ever know.
