Today was another great day at work.  So in honor of that great day, I think I'll post some great things that have happened to me lately.

First, halloween at my mother-in-law's was great!  Trunk-or-Treat at their church was awesome.  They cooked some wonderful food - YUMMM - and while Poppa was outside rolling Beth in the wagon, Nonna shared something absolutely B E A U T I F U L!

I mean, this just has to be about one of the nicest pregnancy loss gestures EVER!

She put together a scrapbook of my miscarriage journey.

Inside this booklet are pages that contain most of my blog entries with pictures of angels and babies or poems about pregnancy loss. On this page down below, I took a photo of my favorite page - it has pics of what my baby looked like when I lost him/her.

I'm telling you! I couldn't be more moved by this gesture!!  My Angel Baby meant so much to her too; the loss affected her as well.  And she shared that with us.

I couldn't be more blessed!  I have the best in-laws to go along with the best husband of all :-)

Another great thing... I went with my daughter to the dollar store today to get a few things - OPKs included ;-) - and we stumbled down the baby isle.  She saw some tiny shirts and said, "This could fit my baby doll, Mommy."  I said yes, but your dolls don't need any more clothes right now.  To which she replied, "Well, we can get that after God puts the baby in your tummy."

She makes me smile!  You'd almost think she's just as obsessed with me conceiving as I am!!  And I swear people, I DO NOT TALK WITH HER ABOUT HAVING ANOTHER BABY! EVER!!  These comments have got to be messages from God...

((cue relaxed sigh))  Good day.  Now if I could just lose this nagging cough, I'd be perfect ;-)  Nahhh - perfection? Not in this life. 


  1. Yea for smiles :) I'm glad that someone has a great MIL - mine honestly completely tortures me. She is downright awful. Worse when the holidays come. It's so hard. I am glad that you get along with your in laws. Much love to you! <3

  2. Awww, your daughters response was absolutely precious :)

    As for the book that your MIL made for you, how incredibly thoughtful. I know how much this meant to you and god bless her sweetness.

    Many HUGS

  3. That book is WONDERFUL! What a neat idea to include the images of what Angel Baby would have looked like. And I love Beth's comments - our older children can help us to heal in such extraordinary ways!
