It’s been awhile since I’ve done and inspiration post. The below came to me from a fellow Buffalonian and law school friend, Kim. I love knowing that we have girl power and that we all have each others backs, without question or hesitation, when life takes an unexpected turn:
October 17, 2012: Just read your latest post — you are an amazing, strong, smart, passionate woman and I know that whatever comes, you will take it on, battling a step at a time, charging on through to the other side. So much GOOD waits for you on the other side. I’ve been thinking of you every day, and sending prayers to the Universe.
I appreciate your posts, too, because I am learning so much — about this process, about IVF (something that, at this point, I am assuming will be part of my life). I will be right there with you as an “old mom”. Here’s to swapping new baby stories at our Duke Law 25th. Or, fuck it — our 30th!
Last month, my husband left me. Apparently marriage doesn’t suit him. I moved out of our house last weekend, and am trying to re-vision what my future might be, how it will look. I’ve been thinking a lot about how we never can know what’s going to come our way — good things or bad things. But, I have faith that life plays out to balance. Good things will come.
Kim, you are so strong and poised. I’m in awe of you. Thank you for reaching out, sharing your story and continuing to check in on me all these months later. Good things will come!
