Making a difference



Few years ago I got a kind email from a reader who lives 700 kilometers away from me. The part of the email that touched me the most was this one:

"One of the things that help me is your blog (and other blogs). It makes me feel less alone in my struggles. That's why I want to thank you for writing about infertility. It does make a difference. For me and many other women, I am sure."

When you write a blog on something so very personal as infertility it is just wonderful if someone writes you something kind. And tells you her (or his) reasons for reading the blog.

The photo above was taken at our most beautiful alpine lake this weekend. I went there with my husband, my penfriend (with whom we exchanged many emails since her first email) and her husband.

The infertility has taken a lot from me. But it has also given me so much - like these new friends. We invited them in our home and they stayed with us for couple of days. It was just lovely to see our new home full of life.

The visitors have already left but I am very sure we will meet again.

  1. I often say to people who are writing and feel worthless that they don't know how much they are helping the silent readers. I'm so glad your readers have not all been silent, and that you had the pleasure of making new friends, and hosting them in your house. I'm still hoping to get there!

    And that is a stunningly beautiful photo. It reminds me of an old painting. And also - it reminds me of NZ.
