Keepin’ It Real Rewinds – An End to the Sabbatical?
I know a lot of you have enjoyed my Keepin’ It Real Rewinds Series that I started to chronicle our experience with infertility, and an extreme high-risk pregnancy. It’s been a true privilege to connect to you through them, and to hear your own stories and struggles. It’s also been a true joy to celebrate with you on several occasions and rejoice over the blessing of a new miracle life.
I’ve often put writing them aside, because they are just plain TOUGH to write.
Each paragraph brings back so many emotions from those days. Days of grief. Days of heartache. Days of uncertainties, held breaths, questions, difficult decisions, and bad news.
Part of me wants to put it all behind me.
To Let Go.
To Live Life Completely in the Present.
After all, we’ve been blessed more than we could have asked or imagined. We are living a miracle. (4 of them, in fact!) We got the best possible scenario.
I don’t want to forget the miracle.
I don’t want to forget the obstacles that we’ve all overcome.
I don’t want to miss an opportunity to encourage one of you.
I don’t want to keep from giving God the glory and praise for preserving their lives.
So I’m contemplating returning to the series this summer…
(You can read the unfinished series if you’d like, while you wait on me to decide.)
