I expect this blog will reflect the lenses through which I see the world – from four years of infertility, to reflecting on the present & past journey to know God and myself, to the current challenges of life – including being a mother of a food allergic child (tree nuts, eggs and fish). I hope that readers from many different walks of life will feel welcomed, recognzied and respected here.
The title of my blog comes from a poem by John O’Donohue and it feels so right for where I am right now:
I would love to live
Like a river flows
Carried by the surprise
Of its own unfolding
On posts that contain references to kids, I try to always put in the disclaimer (kids mentioned). On reason is that I tend to follow infertiity or childfree blogs. I started this as a way to help me cope and understand when a good friend and her dh chose the childfree route after IF treatments. I have every faith in them making the best decision for themselves, especially as they pray about all of these important decisions. However, it was a decision I didn’t really understand and I wanted to know more about it … and then I became involved again in the heartbreak and struggles of life through the IF lens.
