The other day I was in my bathroom getting ready for work when my iP.od played a song that always takes me back to the days when I was undergoing infertility treatments. More specifically, it takes me back to the days when I would put my dog in the car, roll down the windows, and drive to Ta.co Be.ll while singing this song at the top of my lungs to my dog. Every time I hear it, all of those old feelings come flooding back. The ones that were filled with hope and discouragement, aching for happiness, yet feeling despair. I held on tightly to the things in my life that made me happy to keep from sinking into darkness and depression. Those rides to the Bell were some of the happiest. My dog was at my side through each and every moment. When I had my surgery, she barely left my side until I was back on my feet. This song is still our song, and I think of her and those rides every time I hear it.
That got me to thinking about creating the video you see below. In it are random pictures from the two years in which I underwent infertility treatments. They were a painful two years, but ones that I look back on and am thankful for because they made me who I am today.
