Why I'm Crying Today

I am speechless, which is a word that most would not associate with me. It is extremely rare that I just don't. know. what. to. say.

I got an email from my friend Sarah this morning, telling me she has a present for me. There was a mixup and it was shipped to her, but it's now on its way to me. And I cannot wait to get it.


She found it on this Etsy site. It's sold out, so I have one and you don't. ;) Here is the description:

This beautiful necklace represents all of those out there that have or are struggling with Infertility.

If you're aware of the "Infertility's Common Thread" bracelet you'll understand the meaning behind the Pomegranate colors that were chosen for this piece.

The Pomegranate Ribbon is to promote awareness.
The Pomegranate Teardrop Pearl represents the tears that have been shed.
The Miracles charm represents the miracles we will one day have.
The Pomegranate Crystal represents the glimmer of Hope we all need on a cloudy day.

If you're unaware of the Pomegranate colors, please visit this site for more information.
http://stirrup-queens.blogspot.com and search for "Infertility's Common Thread". [You can find the icon linked in the top, right corner of this blog too!]

. . . I want to make the world aware that Infertility is real and it hurts.

To Sarah: (Yeah, I'm crying typing this now.) Thank you from the bottom of my heart and the depths of my broken & barren uterus. Little did we know when we first "met" that we would walk this journey together. I know you're my biggest cheerleader, and I thank you for it. I hope you know that I'm the same for you. I can't wait to wear my necklace proudly - for all the world to see my struggles on the outside, for me to represent ALL of us who wear Infertility's Common Thread, and to show everyone that I have such an amazing friend in you. I love you.

That is so awesome of Sarah and yes, it is SO beautiful and I am sure that you will wear it beautifully.

I have a friend who makes custom jewelry as well and I actually asked her last week if she would make a special necklace for me to remember Baby B. I can't wait until we finalize our idea and I get to wear it.

You have an amazing friend.

You are doubly blessed with an amazing gift and a perceptive friend.
I struggled with infertility also. After a complete meltdown I lashed out at my best friend of 25 years for not "getting it." Instead of holding a grudge against me a week later she sent a Fertility Bracelet what a powerful gift. I wore it everyday until I was finally pregnant with my twins. I wish you the best of luck!
Keep blogging!
