The Secret to Being Strong

I made the comment last week while we were waiting to hear the status our our embryos, that if our IVF cycle was cancelled, we would just have to try again.  Some of my online friends commented on how strong I was for making that statement.  I stared at the screen awhile trying to formulate a response but I couldn't put the words together.  Am I strong?  Is trying again a sign of strength?  At the time I didn't feel strong.  There are times now that I still don't feel strong.  I think this is an accurate description of my situation:

I have to be strong there are no other options.  I call it strength by default.

These insights are brought to you by my glass of wine.  When I told the hubs that my glass of wine had made me insightful and I felt the need to share these insights with others, he asked me if my glass of wine also made me horny.  Apparently insights aren't at the top of his priority list. :)


  1. I love, love, love that quote. I have found it has applied to a few hurdles in my life, most recently IF. I admire you're ability to look forward to the next cycle. I'll be keeping my fx for you!!!

  2. This post gave me chills, Twinkie!! Yes, you are the walking definition of strength. I look to you with complete awe and admiration for how gracefully you continue on! Enjoy that wine, and some good lovin' with your husband :) I always have you in my prayers!
