Time Away.

Good morning beautiful friends!
I have missed you all so much.
Because I know I can be honest with you,
I'm going to tell you what's been going on.
Almost 2 years ago,
I was told that I wouldn't be able to have babies.
They said the radiation had caused me to go into the early stages of menopause.
When they told me, 
I didn't know what to think.
I cried,
but I didn't know how to feel.
I tried to put it in the back of my mind and forget about it.
 I was 20 at the time.
I couldn't picture my life with a baby at that point, anyway.
I was just starting nursing school and I was planning my wedding.
Even though the thought was there, 
it didn't affect me.
It didn't seem real.
But this past week,
I struggled.
I struggled more than I ever have.
The thought turned into a fear,
and the fear felt real.
When I wasn't at work,
I was in bed.
Because when I was asleep,
I couldn't feel.
I wasn't feeling that way because I was trying to have a baby and couldn't.
I was  fearful of what would happen when we did decide to try.
Last night,
as I was crying,
and pouring my heart out to my hubs,
he said,
People told you that you had an incurable cancer.
But God healed you.
People told you that you would never have a baby.
But if God wants us to have a baby,
we will have a baby.  We have to have faith.
So now,
that is what I will hold on to.
Worrying and being fearful doesn't do anything;
(except give you a stomach ache and huge bags under your eyes)
but faith does everything.
One day,
I will be a mommy.

So that's where I've been.
Being all emo and stuff.
 I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
See you Monday:)

What a great supportive husband you have! And everything he said is SO true, everything is in Gods hands and if y'all are meant to have a baby you will! Stay strong pretty girl!

I've just stumbled across your blog and thought I'd stop by to say DON'T LOSE FAITH! My fiance also had cancer when he was younger and we've been told that he is near to infertile because of the treatment he received. Just stay positive, we are! Whatever will be, will be :) Best of luck to you! X

Oh you sweet girl. This breaks my heart for you...I hate that you're dealing with some pretty rough thoughts and feelings. Try to stay strong and remember that He is faithful! =) Say it in the sunshine and SCREAM it in the darkness, even if it's just to convince yourself. He is faithful.

Praying for your heart..

Wow thanks for being so honest and sharing! I am talking with my dr. this week to start testing since we've been trying now for over a year with no luck, and I can't imagine what it will be like if I hear those same words too.. Also what great advice from your hubby, that's so awesome that he is so supportive.☺☺

No need to apologize or even explain. But I'm sure your honesty helps others going through the same thing as you.
Just like your hubby said, you've fought through cancer, you can do anything.However it happens, I'm sure you'll be a mother and a great one at that.

My sister in law struggled for many years to have a baby and it never happened. Then she was told that she had a rare form of Breast Cancer and she had a very small chance of survival. Her doctors also told her that she would not have children. She was diagnosed in January of 2008 had a double mastectomy in July of 2008 was declared cancer free in September 2008..and by September 2009 her son was born. There is no doubt in our minds that God healed her and that when the time was right God gave her a baby. Our God is greater then any doctor and if God wants you to have a baby you will.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think
its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.
