CD1 and I don't care... just happy to be alive.

I have a new perspective after the tornado ravaged my city on Wednesday, April 27, 2011, destroying buildings, homes, and lives. 

Today, I am not dwelling on the fact that I suffer from infertility.

Today, I am glad to be alive.  

I've been busy the past few days giving my all to my city.  I've volunteered to help collect and distribute donations of food, water, flashlights, toiletries, baby items, etc.  Basic essentials that we all tend to take for granted. I wish I could do more. I wish I could comfort those that lost children, parents, grandparents, and friends. I offer hugs, but I know that they won't bring back the people that were lost.  And it hurts.

I am in total disbelief that God spared my life.  The tornado that hit Tuscaloosa, was predicted to hit where I live, but instead took a turn, and touched down about 1/2 mile from our home.  I just can't believe that we have absolutely no damage, when others have lost all of their belongings. Every.single.thing they own. Some didn't even have shoes on, but you could tell that they were just thankful to be alive. To be breathing.  

Babies were torn from the arms of their mothers.  Other children have lost both parents and are now orphans. It breaks my heart to the core. I can't imagine. 

I'm still in shock. I've been a total zombie for days.

So far, all of my friends and family members have been accounted for.

I praise the Lord for his devine protection!

  1. Hi, visiting from ICLW and wanted to wish you luck on your journey. I know how difficult it all is, having pcos and ttc for 2 years.

    I am sorry that you are not only dealing with infertility but also with the tornados devastating effects. I am glad to hear you are okay and have been praying for all those who lost something or someone in this disaster.

  2. Thank you both for you thoughts and prayers for both IF and dealing with the after effects of a devastating tornado. It's been a pretty tough year so far. Hoping that it gets better.
