30 Days of Thanksgiving: Days 10-12

30 Days of Thanksgiving
30 Days of Thanksgiving for Infertility continues...

Day 10

I am thankful that my circumstances brought me closer to God. There was a time in my life when infertility had the opposite affect. I was angry at God and chose to deal with my situation by pulling away from God. I don't know why I thought the world could bring me comfort during this trying period in my life. It didn't. I am thankful that even though there were many instances when I felt alone, that God was always with me.

Day 11

I'm thankful for the journey. I don't think I would be as aware of "the wilderness" had I not gone through infertility. I learned what it really means that if the Lord leads you to the wilderness, He will also lead you through it! It will forever remind me that when I am struggling in this life, He is walking right beside of me for good.

Day 12

I am thankful for Dr. R (aka Dr. Wonderful). God has given him the best bed side manner. He was the first doctor I went to see who I felt truly saw me as a person and not a patient. He knew me by name...He knew my husband by name too. God has gifted Dr. R with the ability to help people--and I am very thankful that he has that gift and that I picked him out of the yellow pages randomly one day. (God had his hand all over that situation.)
