Another day, still sad

Filed under: Uncategorized — by mcadmom @ 2:36 pm

But life goes on, right?  I am so overwhelmed at the number of kind messages from other women.  I am now a member a club I never wanted to join, and yet I am gaining a lot of strength from my fellow members.  I just emailed to someone else that I wish we all had keychains so we could see each other in public–the sadness of miscarriage is so isolated.

I spend a lot of time thinking of others who are in awful situations and when I get really sad I remind myself of them.  I’ve been reading a lot of blogs from a site called “Mothers With Cancer”, and the strength of those women is breathtaking.

I also find myself plunking around on silly sites like this one:

Thanks to Susan I have a very special place where I can design my own awful holiday sweater.  Really.  And when things get very bad I just remind myself that I could be wearing a green sweater vest with Santa on it–things could be worse.

I also found that my Southern roots have seeped into my language thanks to this quiz:

And an oldie but goodie–I love this collection of Weight Watchers recipe cards from the 70’s.

So, I am off to put on my virtual Santa sweater and curl up for a while longer.  But I will write again soon!
