one question

okay just one question... how is it that the whole universe is in constant motion and i seem to be at a complete standstill. our house still hasn't sold, my husband's biggest client just went bankrupt (due to no fault of his own. some things are just bigger than we mere mortals), i'm still at square one with our last little snowflake, who must be frozen to death by now....

i know i said just one question but actually there's two. the second one is WHEN

i use to ask my mother the same question, "when am I going to get married and have a baby?" she would reply, holding me in her arms (even though i was well into adulthood), "don't worry, it will happen, when the time is right."

well i'm feeling as though my feet are stuck in flypaper but i guess this is better than sinking in quicksand. so i'll keep my chin up and wait for the sun to shine.

  2. Girl you don't know the half of it. You are in a good place. I often tell people, If there were a GOD, than he/she must hate my family because we have been in HELL since evolution. I'm sure you will be just fine!

  3. I really believe things happen when they're meant to Coco. When it's meant to be it will all go super smooth and you'll wonder why you've had so many hurdles previously - and that's because it wasn't meant to happen before now. I know we were faced with so much because we were meant to get our boys when we did. If we'd managed this earlier, we would have gotten someone completely different. Interesting thought!!

  4. Well girl, I shall just have to sit next to you and share my homemade cookies.

    As long as the sun keeps rising each day, your heart throws a beat and birds remember how to sing.. then you arent stuck. Just a little weary is all.

    No need to keep your chin up, you are already flying above it all. xxoo

  5. Mothers are SO smart (mine always tells me the same thing :). It's so hard to see though, when all you are wanting is a crystal ball! :)

  6. What can i say, the process is just a tad more challenging for some of us. With hindsight, if i had jumped into this a year ago, i would have made a lot of mistakes - but it doesn't stop the longing.
    It will happen, all we need to do is look around us and see the evidence and read the blogs from the begining, it is rarely straight forward for anyone,

  7. you'll get there and it'll happen sooner rather than later.

    and in the meantime, you'll learn patience and find peace.

  8. Stop thinking of negatives and focus on positives. You have wonderful supporting husband, lovely daughter and love for both of them. That is more then enought to bring the smile on your face. Go ahead and smile, right now! All the other things will come little bit later.

    Cheers, Ula

  11. Hello Coco,
    you are in my thoughts quite a bit lately, your support meant so much to both John and i as we travelled down this path to become parents. I want so much for this to be for you to.

    Just letting you know you are in our thoughts and prayers,
