State of mind
« on: May 07, 2011, 11:50:12 PM »
I would appreciate any prayers for my current mood/state of mind. For a variety of reasons mothers day will be slightly depressing tomorrow. Many have said/will say that I should be happy that I have four living and beautiful children. I am very happy to have the beautiful children I have. But currently I am really struggling with depression because of the baby I should be growing inside me now that I lost just 4 weeks ago, and the other 4 children that we have lost as well. I hear often that I have my hands full, but I miss the children I never really was able to meet. I am blessed to have our 4 living children, I truly am. But I long for the 5 I will never hold.

I suffered a miscarriage during finals last semester. It was my first pregnancy. I can't imagine the loss of five babies, and my heart goes out to you. ***Praying for you and all of us who have lost our children*** Lord, have mercy!

My only weakness is, well, never mind

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
