My sweet friend Amanda has done it again. Every post she writes touches my heart in a new way and this one was no exception. She makes me want to fight harder, speak kinder, and be a better person. I can only pray that God gives me half the grace that he's blessed her with during this struggle. Amanda I am so thankful to have you in my life and feel privileged to call you my friend.
If you have the time please take 10 minutes to read this post. Grace In The Storm.
I've highlighted some of the statements that affected me the most.
The truth is that infertile women often are bitter... I know I've been bitter often throughout these years. This journey is hard. This storm is fierce. But bitterness (particularly abusive, negative, hateful bitterness) will solve nothing, grace on the other hand will soften hearts.
My goal is to shine a light on infertility, educate people about infertility, and offer support to anyone in need... not to bash people or create an environment where we all sit around and hate on fertile people
I'm proud of the community, proud of my friends; I just want others to see us as I do.
