Life is crazy, it’s insane and for the most part, it’s exhilarating and beautiful. And then sometimes it’s not. It can be scary and dark and sad and lonely.
And being a parent compounds the good and the bad. As a mom, when my children are involved, I feel the good so much stronger, and I feel the bad equally strong.
Nothing makes your heart soar more than watching your children soar in their faith, thrive in surroundings, and succeed in their dreams.
And, conversely, nothing can compare to the fear of something going wrong … anything at all.
That is where I am today and it’s the reason for this blog.
Maybe you know, I am 7 weeks pregnant, maybe you missed that video, but 7 weeks is a very precarious stage, so very early in the pregnancy.
Yet, early as it may be, this baby is already a member of our family, we are in love, he or she is very much wanted and deeply deeply loved.
Unfortunately, I feel this young fragile life is threatened and I’m terrified.
It all started Friday, when I began spotting … today it’s a tad bit more and red. No cramps, no flow, just spotting and so incredibly frightening that I’m writing this blog to appeal to our prayerful friends that they include us in their prayers.
Tomorrow I see my Dr at 3:30 Mountain time … prayers that I avoid miscarriage and for a healthy baby are so so appreciated. I know the power of prayer, I’ve seen three miracles in my lifetime, in addition to the 12 miracles of life that I’ve been privvy to, and I know God and all the Angels and Saints are faithful…thank you in advance, you guys, we are so grateful for any and all prayer.
JMJ, pray for us! St Gerard, pray for us! St Catherine of Siena, pray for us! St Monica, pray for us! St Anthony, pray for us! St Jude, pray for us! St Gianna Beretta Molla, pray for us!
