Off to summer camp

Signing off for a few days here as we head out to summer camp with our church's high school youth group.

I know I have said this before, but I am sorry I have not been commenting as much lately. I keep hoping I will get back in the swing of things, but for some reason blogging and commenting have been more difficult lately. I have seen a number of other bloggers over the last year and half who get to this point somehow...this distancing from the blog world...and now I get it. I don't really know why exactly I am feeling like this, but in the mean time please know I am thinking of you all, reading along, and praying for your cycles, pregnancies, or new lives as parents.

Not that you need my permission, but I also understand if you want to stop reading and/or commenting. My blog isn't really one that will give many of you hope in regards to fertility treatments, and I know the tone of my posts has been pretty down - not exactly a fun combo. I have valued your support along the way but I don't expect it from you.

Anyway....have a great week, and when I get back we will hopefully be starting our frozen egg cycle. Take care!

I hope you have a good camp. Don't feel bad about not commenting or blogging much. I think we all go through phases when it is too hard to comment.

Have fun at camp. We'll never stop reading your blog!!

Just so you know, your blog has great value to many people. I got pretty slammed with the bible and how I should not be sad or angry or feel anything but pure joy that my babies were in heaven. It did alot of damage to my relationship with God. I have found great comfort and a better perspective about infertility and pregnancy loss thanks to you and a few other Christian bloggers. No matter what the outcome for you, your thoughts and honest are needed and cherished. You are an incredible testimony to God's greatness and his faithfulness.

No matter how your children become your children, they are the ones that God has purposed for you. Your journey will make you that much better of a mom.

Thank you for all you have done for me.

Sweet girl, I am praying you into parenthood, believing you will hold a baby in your arms sooner then later- remember Proverbs 16:9 - Gods time, Gods way....!

Totally understand the blogging/commenting block...I was in a funk for the last couple months and still kind of am. You were one of the first blogs I started reading and one of the first people to ever comment on my blog. I feel like we've been in this together through thick and thin, the ups and downs, the good and the bad - and I don't plan on going anywhere!! I can't begin to tell you what an impact you have had on my life through your blog. Have a wonderful time at summer camp and I'll "see" you when you get back!
Love you, Hil!

I completely understand. I take the occasional break myself, especially when I feel like I have nothing interesting or uplifting to say. No worries! Have a blast at camp. See you when you feel like it. Hopefully sooner than later. Thinking of you.

Have a great time at summer camp! I think just about everyone in this blogging community understands your need to back off for a bit. Definitely nothing to feel bad about!

Have a great time at camp! I think a break from the blog world is totally normal - and don't feel bad about the tone of your posts. You are going through a lot. we'll be here when you come back!

Tabitha said...

No need to appologize my dear, you've been through a lot. I'm sort of in the middle of the same thing...I even have difficulty blogging at all! You and I are an awefull lot alike, from the mysterious spotting to the "it should have worked...we'ere not sure why it didn't", to our faith that is being tested every day. I'm praying for you!!

I loved, loved, loved being a camp counselor -- I hope you are having a blast this week!

We will be here when you get back from camp and your blog break.

Mrs. Hammer said...

No worries. I'm still here supporting, praying and cheering on your journey - comments or no comments :) Enjoy your break at camp!

Oh, goodness, don't feel badly. My posts are DebbieDowner ALL THE TIME. It's a place to let go and find support. Not all of us are built to be witty and amusing constantly. Do what you need to do and know that we are still here.

I think there are alot of us feeling a little distanced right now. We'll get through this :) Hope your time at camp is refreshing for you (HUG)

I recently found your blog and am looking forward to following you on your journey. It is hard sometimes to keep up with blogging especially about such a personal topic. I too find myself wondering why people would want to read my infertility blog because sometimes it is not so positive. But I think that is why we are all here...to support each other through the good and bad posts/days. I wish you a wonderful summer camp.
