Bad news that turns out happy

As you all know I am pregnant... er, was. I found out yesterday that I am miscarrying. Yesterday was a terrible day. I cried nearly the whole day (when The Boss wasn't near me) and had a really bad time of it... until later in the night when my dear sweet hubby gave me a priesthood blessing. It was like night and day. I was feeling wretched before the blessing, and afterward I had so much understanding and peace it was phenomenal. I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father who loves me and really does watch out for me. I am not sad anymore, because I know that the timing just wasn't right, and I haven't lost anyone. We all go through trials to learn great lessons, and I hope I have learned it well. So, thank you for all the well wishing, but there really is no cause for sadness anymore. It is all part of His plan, and I can accept that most happily and readily. Thanks for your concern.

Well I'm glad your priesthood blessing helped you understand the big picture. You'll have another chance to have a baby when the timing is right, I'm sure. Good luck.

While it's certainly no fun to go through, I'm glad you have a positive outlook on this. You are a trooper!

Wow Amy, I'm sorry about the loss, but it is wonderful that you can gain the insight from the experience.

I'm sorry Amy. I wondered if that was the case when I read your previous blog. You're in my prayers!

Hello! I feel so stalkerish leaving a comment, but I saw your blog on my Feedjit... do we know each other, or do you know Tyler? Anyways, I am so, so sorry to read about your miscarriage. I can honestly say I know how you feel : (

I've never even heard of Blog Hopper! Let's do become blogging friends -- I have a one or two others that I've never met but I feel like I know them because of their blogs! It was nice to meet you :) I love how you call your son The Boss!

I can relate to such a loss, and the understanding that Heavenly Father can give (especially in a priesthood blessing). (((HUGS)))
