Infertility: Another day in paradise?

” . . . crimson sunrises, falling snow in moonlight, twirling dolphins, wagging tails, purring hearts, ocean mists, or bare feet in wet grass . . . . “

– TUT

Yesterday these word images were sent to me as part of a larger email. I found my eyes going back to them over and over again.

Crimson sunrises

Falling snow in moonlight

Twirling dolphins

Wagging tails

Purring hearts

Ocean mists

and . . .

Bare feet in wet grass

Yum, that’s what I feel when I read those words, yum, just another day in paradise.

Infertility changes many things about each of us as women; however one thing that we often don’t notice changing is our perspective on the rare beauty of life.

Every day we are surrounded by tiny pieces of paradise. Every day we find ourselves audience to the world’s most spectacular miracles. Yet it can be so easy to overlook their grandeur when our eyes are fixed on that which eludes us, rather than that which surrounds us.

I know you know this feeling. Sitting there, watching the seconds tick by on your watch, waiting for the mandatory three to five minutes to pass, trying not to look at that little stick, watching for a plus, wondering if maybe that’s a faint line, all while sitting there, waiting.

How much of our lives are spent waiting for what’s in tomorrow? How much of our lives are spent looking down at the clock, rather than up at life?

Perhaps today is a day to notice the crimson sunrise, and to take our shoes off and run barefoot through the wet grass.

You see we are living in paradise; every day is just another day in paradise. Take time to see what surrounds you now so that you may gift your child with that awareness in the future.

Crimson sunrises, falling snow in moonlight, twirling dolphins, wagging tails, purring hearts, ocean mists, and bare feet in wet grass .

  1. Yip I have had this problem (focus on what is missing instead of appreciating what is in the here and now). Thanks for the reminder!
