Going through the emotions of a miscarriage really stink.  When I think about them on my own, I'm just apologetic because I feel like I was the reason that it failed.  It's my body and my body didn't cooperate when building this little baby.  I know it's not the case, per say.  That it takes two and that it wasn't just me, but you know what I mean...

But, viewing the emotions that husband is experiencing, through all of this, has probably been some of the hardest moments yet.

All in all, he's doing really well.  He's staying very positive and keeps me thinking positively too.  When we first found out, it was not the same though.  We were both heart broken, but I could tell he was just taking it a lot harder than he was leading on.

As the d&c process started, happened and we were healing, that was hard on the both us too but without saying much, I could tell it was just breaking him down more and more daily.

We kept and keep reminding ourselves that this is the best experience that we've had along this journey.  That we've never been this far and because of that, we have to remember how positive this has been, even though the outcome royally sucks.

Watching his emotions and the way he's mourned this whole process has been really painful.  I know it's so positive but we still have to take the time to heal and sometimes when we're doing that in our own way it's even more painful for the other person.

We do love each other and know we'll be able to accomplish another successful pregnancy on our own.  We just have to continue to heal physically and emotionally and then we'll continue on this journey...

praying for you, jill! i'm so sorry for your loss.
I'm so sorry to hear about your loss.
I think that grief and loss comes in waves. Sometimes we're just fine, other times it overtakes us.

I'm praying for you and Mr. Hope.

Lots and lots of hugs, and so sorry for your loss. I'm sure the only thing harder than going through it yourself is watching your beloved DH go through it, too. As people say, this too shall pass!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
