There's so much beauty in reaching out, being vulnerable, throwing a part of your heart into the void and seeing the response of people when you're willing to share your story. Through this time I've realized we'll always be longing for someone, someplace, something that's not with us. We'll always crave comfort; But I have come to learn this: this world will never be what we want it to be this side of heaven. I'll always try to stand on my tip toes and peek over the fence, but until then I'll hope and dream of the something more I so long to have. I'm truly grateful for all the people who told me that I'm not alone from my last blog post, shared their story, and expressed their love. It's so compelling to hear all the women who've experience the grief and loss of miscarriage and I'm just thankful to have this little corner to share my story. So, to all of you, thanks.
