Letting Go...

I've always been one to live by the saying 'Let Go and Let God'! Throughout this 5+ years I've done amazingly well with having patience with God's plan for us, I've had Faith and have done very well with Letting Go and Letting God...however since our failed IVF, I haven't Let God do much of anything due to the fact I haven't been able to Let Go!!

I think it's safe to say after 4 months I am ready to LET GO-- there is an important difference between letting go and giving up--letting go doesn't mean giving up--it just means I am ready to move on!

We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to accept the life that is waiting for us. Will I still think about things-YES...will I still shed tears every now and then-SURE...will the thought that I was 'a little' pregnant for a short period of time ever leave my heart-NO....but  I will be ok, hurdles in life only make you stronger and I have to admit this was one of the biggest hurdles we've been through.

When one door closes another opens, but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the ones which are now open for us.We will eventually have another door open; I don't want to miss it due to the fact that I can't let go of the door that just closed.

God has slowly provided me strength to move forward and to let go...and that's just what we are doing!

Just wanted to say that you are not alone! Some days I think that I have let go but then it hits me again like a ton of bricks. I have gotten really good at putting on a happy face and going on with life, but it's the hardest thing I have ever had to do.
Hoping that our time comes soon! I think we are going to be the best Mamas ever!

I have a hard time thinking about what I would like and not what God would like for me!!! It is hard when you see so many others having what you would dream of....but there are other doors that are just as great:) I know you have been giving yourself that time and I know it isn't easy. I see many great memories in your future!!! You will be an amazing mom!

Good for you. :)
Letting go does not mean giving up or forgetting, it just means letting the burden fall off your back.
May God's many blessings be upon you,

Jessica

I'm new to your blog and just wanted to say how inspiring your story and faith are. I especially love when you wrote that letting go is not the same as giving up, that really struck a cord with me. I'm trying to think of letting go as trusting, specifically that God is taking care of my babies in heaven and that He is also watching over me and my husband.

I hope He reveals that new door to you soon.
