Wow. Crazy how time just keeps marching on, isn't it?

(Possible Triggers, living children mentioned...)

I really thought I would be happy and relieved when 2012 was finally over. With two miscarriages, it was definitely a difficult year for me. And while I can't say I'm happy to have gone through that heartbreak, I will say it gave me back the perspective I hadn't realized I lost. I have many blessings in my life and things for which to be grateful, I have two beautiful, happy, healthy children. I have a wonderful husband I've known since I was 13, a rock-solid family and friends who are beyond compassionate, including three who've gone through miscarriage. I had lost sight of all these blessings, but I've found them again and truly understand how special they are. It's my silver lining on a year that was filled with lots of tears.

I've learned a lot about myself over the past year. That I have love, strength and perseverance. And when all else fails, I have hope. Some days hope was the only thing left, and it was enough.

It is my greatest wish that 2013 brings more tears of joy and fewer tears of pain and loss to all you wonderful ladies. That we keep hope alive, even in the most meager of doses and that we all have our prayers answered and our dreams fulfilled.

Love, hugs and prayers to all of you!
