Computer time/blogging has taken a backseat in the recent months-and Ive missed it terribly. So when I happened to check the Lost and Found one day, I saw that one of my favoritest bloggers was doing a fabulous thing: a Sock Exchange! I thought it was the perfect way for me to get reconnected and participate in yet another wonderful thing this community does for each other.
My kick-ass socks (literally!) came from the lovely Melissa. She picked a very positive and uplifting pair of socks for me: she said, "Since you kicked IF's butt, I thought these were perfect..."
First, I LOVE the thought behind them. Second, I love that they are knee socks--and they dont cut off my circulation! So many knee highs are uncomfortable--but these are divine. I have worn them so much already! Thanks so much Melissa! Im so glad to have found a new blog buddy as well!
Can you see why they are KICK-ass? The ninjas remind me that we battled infertility and were blessed with the precious O-man.
I also was able to connect with another new blog buddy, Sarah, since she was my sock-buddy. I sent her a pair to remind her that we are all here for each other even on the rainy days...
I've thought A LOT about Kym's other request in the Sock-Exchange...to explain what this community means to me. To try and get it all in this one post would be impossible. I started this blog 2 years ago when Mook and I had just received the most devastating news...that we had a less than 1% chance of getting pregnant. I found myself diving into Google to try and find something, anything to make me feel less alone. And boy did I ever...I found one blog, then another, then another...and before I knew it, I was wrapped in the arms of so many amazing women who knew exactly how I was feeling.
I couldn't imagine the past 2 years of my life without this community--I am so grateful for the love and support I receive--and that Im able to offer in return. The warm fuzzies runneth over!
