Pregnancy loss is a taboo topic that people know exists, but few speak to the real challenges. I can only speak from a woman’s perspective, but there is this ache of having a child that will never spend the holidays with you while the earth remains.
The holiday season is filled with season’s cheer. The commercials are geared to encourage slow-moving gentleman to go to Kay and secure a kiss or better yet, get a wonderful gift from Tiffany’s (who doesn’t like their signature Tiffany Blue)
I had a mess on my hands. A five-year mess few people knew about. That mess was my clutter which kept me emotionally bound and unhappy in the environment I created. I remember very well when the clutter started when we lost our first child. I lost the desire to do very much or to try to keep anything tidy.
The mountaintop experiences with God are so pleasant. Don’t you just love them! There isn’t anything you can’t accomplish. No dream that will remain unfulfilled. No assignment too great or too small. It is a sweet place to be until you have to come down from the mountaintop to a valley drop.
Last week I had the privilege of speaking with a room full of pre-medicine students who are a part of the Multicultural Association of Pre-Health Students at Baylor University. I can admit now that I was a little nervous about what to present that would meet the goal of talking about my career while educating the students in the significance of how they show up in the healthcare profession.
While scrolling through my Facebook timeline, I see messages of “success.” Most of the stories speed through the difficult times to focus on much happier experiences of living the “dream life.” Even in our everyday conversations with other people, we briefly mention the challenging times and make sure to get to the good moments quickly.
