As I'm training for my marathon (14 miles to run this weekend, *gulp* that's a new distance record), I really am learning that it is much more mental than physical. I've been drained lately with so much going on that the mental really is tough. This gave me perspective, reminded me that it will all be worth it but that it won't be, nor should it be, easy.
As I find myself beginning grad school (yeesh, I feel like I could do a whole 'nother quick takes on updates) to study theology, I want to remember this. It is the love affair that drew me back home to the Catholic Church and is what will lead other to Her. Keeping the connection between my head and heart open is so important - in both directions.
Yea. I love everything about this.
The first time I read this it took my breath away because it summed up infertility so well. The day to day inability to mend coupled with the CD1s and not enough time to grieve before having to start the next cycle of trying. I find myself so often just wanting more time. I'm not sure there is enough time in the world though.
I am so grateful The Man wants to understand me. I've been all over the place lately - emotionally and literally with travel - but he remains patient, forgiving, and tries to understand.
Have a great weekend and be sure to visit Jen for more Quick Takes!
