Monday Quotable

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know my path to motherhood is longer and more complicated than I ever could have expected. At the moment, we're a little stuck in limbo but we do have a least part one of a plan. Non-native pregnancy options are really expensive, so unless we win the lottery or experience a miracle, everything can't happen at once.

In the meantime, we move forward smiling when people ask why we don't have children yet and what we're waiting for. It stings every time but I don't blame them. They don't know the back story. You see a stable married couple in love who've been married for 5+ years and it's natural to wonder why they don't have kids. (FYI, you still shouldn't ask because it may be a painful subject and more importantly, it's not really your business).

Anyway, before I download all of my medical history and depress myself in the process, let me just get to the point of this post. I came across a beautiful (albeit long) video today. Both the subject matter and the quote at the end struck me. I had to share. Just know that giving is the key to a beautiful life. Whether you give small or give huge (like the woman in the video), know you are making the world a better place through love. And if we need nothing else, we certainly need more love. Happy Monday!
