Finding joy and meaning in life

Have you read Lilly's guestpost?

If you haven't, do read it, it is a beautiful post. And do leave a comment... it is so important for someone who has just started thinking writing her own blog. Comments mean to the writer of the blog that her thoughts are heard and that they matter.

I love all the comments that you left (and so did Lilly!!). 

What I also loved was this 14-year-old post that Pamela attached in her comment. I don't remember reading it then. Since 14 years ago I was in the middle of IVF treatments and wasn't even thinking that this is actually possible that you end up without a baby (no matter how hard you try). 

It is a beautiful post, do read it:

I love Pamela's conclusion of the post: "Finding joy and meaning in life is what I would have wanted my son or daughter to do."

  1. Isn't it amazing that going into treatment it's impossible to fathom that it might not lead to parenthood? I couldn't think that was possible, either. Loved Lilly's post, sorry I'm late to the party! And Pamela's post is so powerful, too -- letting go of that guilt and that feeling that being at peace erases your want or pain or loss is so key, but also so very hard.
