I am having trouble believing the responses to the last post … morons do really say the darndest things. Well, it will be a cold day in hell when I ask for you to share stuff with me again … 😉
When Pearlsky was about two years old (undiagnosed, seizures, completely delayed, etc.) we found out “we” were pregnant again. There was no way to test for the problem since we did not know what the problem was. Very scary time.
I told those close to us that we were expecting another child. I could tell that most were nervous for us and hesitant to say anything. I told a close friend of mine (may he rest in peace), a fascinating and great guy. This was before email; later that evening a fax came in. Handwritten in large letters was the following:
Courage has its rewards
Turns out, he was not quite on the mark, but it was probably the single greatest thing said to me concerning the entire situation.
As I said, I am not going to ask you to share stuff with me again, too depressing. BUT, if you happen to want to without being asked … what positive things have been said?
