Happy Thanksgiving!

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.

Hey Saige thanks so much for sharing your past with us...it looks as though you had many moments of happiness even during those difficult two years. It was a lovely song and I have to admit your garden was so gorgeous. I would also love to squeeze your dog she looks like a sweetie! I'm so glad you have your past to be thankful for...but hopefully the future will be even better.

Such a beautiful song and garden. You look so sweet. I can see the love in your dog’s eyes. Animals don’t like the person they love to be hurting. I need to come back and read more. Glad I found you.
