A Blessing To Have Great Friends


As previously mentioned, I am not going to talk about this pregnancy for a while – no personal updates because the roller coaster is too much for me to handle this week. I’m just going through the motions – so you have to forgive me on that.

Also – sorry for going dark yesterday and not posting. Again, not going to say why but I just couldn’t deal.

But there has been something on my mind that I just have to share.

One thing that has been such a saving grace during this test is the support I am feeling from my friends. A dozen or so of them got together and shared a joint Google Calendar to help out with dinner.


Every single night for the next few weeks, there is someone scheduled to feed my family. This raised such a burden off of my husband. I mean, I cried when they told me. What an absolute blessing to know these women and to be part of such a strong community. I will pay it back 100 times whenever they need something.

I will never ever forget this. Ever.

  1. I know I don’t have to tell you how blessed you are to have so many loving friends. Please know that many prayers are going up for you and your precious family.

  2. I’m glad you are accepting their help – I know it’s hard to do sometimes. 🙂

    It’s not surprising at all that you have amazing friends like that – you and Bill are the type of people who would do the same for your loved ones. 🙂
