I saw this on another board and I just felt it truely captures the essence of this board and our everlasting friendship and support to one another:

Stepping Stones by Barbara Williams

Come, take my hand, the road is long. We must travel by stepping stones. No, you're not alone. I'll go with you. I know the road well. I've been there.

Don't fear the darkness. I'll be with you. We must take one step at a time. But remember we may have to stop awhile. It is a long way to the other side and there are many obstacles.

We have many stones to cross. Some are bigger than others... shock, denial, and anger to start. Then comes guilt, despair and loneliness.

It's a hard road to travel but it must be done. It's the only way to reach the other side. Come, slip your hand in mine. What? Oh, yes, it's strong. I've held so many hands like yours.

Yes, mine was one time small and weak like yours. Once, you see, I had to take someone's hand in order to take the first step. Oops! you've stumbled. Go ahead and cry. Don't be ashamed, I understand. Let's wait here awhile and get your breath. When you're stronger we'll go on, one step at a time. There's no need to hurry.

Say, it's nice to hear you laugh. Yes, I agree, the memories you shared are good. Look, we're halfway there now; I can see the other side. It looks so warm and sunny.

Oh, have you noticed? We're nearing the last stone and you're standing alone. And look, your hands, you've let go of mine, and we've reached the other side. But wait. Look back. Someone is standing there . They are alone and want to cross the stepping stones.

I better go; they need my help. What? Are you sure? Why, yes; I'll wait. You know the way - you've been there. Yes, I agree - it's your turn, my friend - to help someone else across the stepping stones.


Also I read this scripture today and thought of you all:

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God...so also through Christ our comfort overflows. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

As usual - you got me. Now I am a teary mess. It was absolutely beautiful & perfect for the sentiment here. JM (and you) have done exactly this for me - lead me through the darkest hours & helped me keep from slipping too far.

Ok so weird...I haven't been on this board in ages and yet today I find myself just lurking along here and bam...the first post, is one I wrote over 2 years ago! There are no conincidences in life. I firmly believe that. So I will continue to frequent here, more then I have as of late...perhaps there is a need for me to help someone across those "stones"????? Surely my story might inspire one or two ladies here...I have had 4 miscarriages...went through infertility, had numerous surgeries and a lot stacked against my dh and I...yet we have our miracle at last. For anyone reading...it will happen for you too. Because there is a Lord, He hears us...He knows our heart. And He would never place a desire upon that heart of yours that HE himself will not fulfill...for HE has started a good work. He will finish it. I am living proof of that. Believe me, there was a time to I did not believe and my faith waivered. Hold tight to one another's hands here in JM....we will get through it together.

Love to you all.

Norina

WOW!!!

Today I was feeling like I wouldn't get another chance to hold a baby and I was starting to doubt God again but now I feel like I have a chance.

I get my clomid tomorrow.
