Footprints in the Sand Through Infertility

BlogHer Spotlight

Footprints In the Sand is a beautiful poem that many have turned during their most difficult moments in life, often during grief and loss. Kir at Kir's Corner shared a heart-wrenching story of her journey through infertility and how she too turned to that poem. If you're struggling right now, the post itself is beautifully written inspiration for all. Give it a read and thank her for going back to the dark places to write it.

Being Carried:

my footprints in the sandThe vacations were meant to refresh my soul, a time for me to take my sadness and disappointment and bury them deep in the earth, to leave my sorrow on those beaches and have the waves carry them away.

Places carefully chosen to heat the cold of my soul and readjust my eyes to beautiful things in life.

But infertility was sticking to me like sand; I could never shake it off.

Uncomfortable and bothersome, itchy and unwelcome.

Read her very moving post about being carried.
