There are certain things in life that happen that we just never see coming.
We never think we’re going to be one of those people.
One of those people…
who gets divorced.
or loses a child.
or gets laid off.
or feels the weight of depression.
or gets sick.
or has a miscarriage.
or loses a parent.
or has an alcohol problem.
or hears the diagnosis of cancer.
or feels completely alone.
And then it happens. That thing. That thing that doesn’t fit in with your life plan. And you are left to somehow put all the cracked pieces back together. Somehow move forward. Somehow create a new plan.
My mother always says, God doesn’t close a door without opening a window.
But damn, that window can be hard to find.
And sometimes it seems wedged shut. Really tight.
But I do believe it’s always there.
I never expected to have three miscarriages. It wasn’t in my plan. So my life will be different now. Not exactly the way I thought it would be.
So I try to move forward. I try to breathe. I try to find that window.
I beg you – please please please don’t say, “I’m sorry.”
Just tell me something that makes you smile. Because maybe it will make me smile too.
