Hope Renewal??

"It can take a lot of courage to be real and honest with others.  Be brave and let your truth shine."- via text message from Attain Fertility

I never want my blog to be one that brings others down.  I hope (there's that awesome word)  to be positive and optimistic about each step in our journey.  That isn't always going to be the case.  It is impossible to be upbeat, excited, and happy ALL of the time no matter what type of situation Life has thrown at you.

I have made a Resolution to be "Surprisingly Satisfied."
"I do solemnly resolve to embrace my current season of life and will maximize my time in it.  I will resist the urge to hurry through or circumvent any portion of my journey but will live with a spirit of contentment."  The Resolution for Women p30 (spoken aloud and signed 7-17-12)

Yesterday was a bad day.  There's no other way to explain it, but that was yesterday.  Today is a new day and it's a great day to have a good day!

Let me also say that my husband is amazing.  He was truly meant to be my better half.  Only he can calm me down, make me laugh, and make me feel loved all at the same time.  He is my rock and I am glad that God chose him to be my sneakers (inside joke y'all should all know by now).

I'm continuing to read The Resolution for Women and it is amazing.  Brandon has already read The Resolution for Men, signed The Resolution, and completed a bible study with the other men at church, but we are now having our own study.  We had said that we would "talk" once a week, but that has turned into about two to three times a week!  God is using this book to help us through our current season of life.  I will continue to post more as I sign each resolution.

Please visit Ali at Not All Dreams Are Free.  She just completed IVF #1 and had her beta(pregnancy test)-->it was low at 13.  They told her to stop crinone and wait for miscarriage.  Please show her some love.  I know she needs it right now.


  1. Even when you're having a down day, you never show it here. It's so inspiring to see how you chug along each day, even when you don't feel well.

    Have a great weekend. Hope today is another day of healing.

    1. Valerie, you are always so supportive! =D I'm going to start sharing more about my hospital stay (here soon) and it will show why I aim to be more positive as well as how God has truly restored my HOPE in Him that we will be parents. ;)

  2. It's hard to be positive all the time... and all of us are here when you're having a bad day too. Love your attitude... inspirational :) xoxo

  3. Found you on ICLW and glad I did. I had a bad day yesterday too. Was fine all day at work, but when I came home I was tearing up over silly things. I just wanted to hide in my bedroom, but I can't do that because it doesn't help. Good luck and I'll keep following!

    1. I'm so glad you found me as well. I promise that I typically have more good days than bad, but I've been struggling since our cancelled transfer + hospital stay for OHSS. Each day is a new day!


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate your comments and support on our journey.

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
