Thank You

I had always thought that bad things were rare. That if there were 1 in 100 odds, odds were you wouldn't know the 1, but loosing Wyatt changed all that. I've started thinking about odds and realizing that someone is that 1, every time.

There is a lot of joy in the blogging community that we have, and there's a lot of pain. I am struck by people's perseverance and ability to be that 1, not once, but often two or three times. I know I haven't been great about commenting lately, but I want to say thank you to all the people who share their stories with me. Without you, I wouldn't be where I am today mentally or emotionally. 

Today, I'm praying that all of us get to be in the majority, and not the minority from now on.


  1. We all go through periods where writing or commenting are just too hard.

    Wouldn't it be lovely if all our dreams were fulfilled and would could just concentrate on blogging about how wonderful it was?

  2. I wrote something very similar today...when you are the ONE...the odds could be 1 in a Gazillion and it wouldn't matter!!

    Praying for majority rule for all of us too!!!

  3. Some people would tell me that the odds of me having another miscarriage were so low... but I would have to tell them that for me, it was 100% of the time.
    Blogs got me through it. I'm so happy you are on your way!

  4. I have so many prayers sending out for you - I know exactly what you mean. I've thought about statistics so many times, and about being that 1... I don't ever me or anyone I know to be it, but I certainly don't want anyone else to be, either.

  5. With my first failed pregnancy, my midwife told me "remember, statistics are on your side". And now with my second failed pregnancy I haven't even got as far as the booking appointment...
