Trying to Conceive: Finding the Strength

The bottom line is: Don't worry about me. I'll be fine. You won't find me on some sidewalk, sleeping in a cardboard box, clutching a bottle of Mad Dog 20/20, drinking my problems away. I'll be the one on the cruise ship, sipping a Mai Tai and planning the next day's adventure, and when someone says, "Do you have any kids?" I can smile wistfully and say, "No, we would have liked to but it just didn't work that way for us." And then I can go buy one of those fabulous tennis bracelets at an incredible price because when you don't have kids you can spend all sorts of money on yourself and not feel guilty.

To everyone out there, +++++++++++ vibes! I'm hoping that you all get your babies soon. Hugs.
