The first is that sometimes we don't know how much we want something until we are told it's going to be hard to get it.
The second is that there is a lot of irony in the fact that medications that aid fertility can make you feel so emotionally off kilter, you wonder if you should be allowed to have children in the first place.
Third, and probably most important, is that life isn't fair. It's just not, but if I'm going to cry because life isn't fair, I have to acknowledge that life is both unfair and generous to all of us. When I compare my situation to what I know of other people's lives, it is hard to remember that I'm only comparing the dirty details of my own shortcomings to what others allow to be seen on the outside. When I look at my life as I should, standing on it's own, I see that life is, and has been, beautiful and more than generous.
So there that is. I do feel better now that I have let this post take a life of its own. For more of what I've written about this- see here.
Happy weekend, everyone. I hope that in it we can take the time to see how generous life is.
