Day 2: Intention

Today when I think of intention, or being intentional, my mind goes a lot of places. I’m reminded how choosing to trust in something bigger than myself has had to be an intentional choice. That seeking community and comfort while I found myself isolating had to be something I did with intention and determination. That in the beginning of this all even my simple trip to get the mail was something I had to intentionally push myself to do, one breath of fresh air at a time. And even with all of the things I could say about this one simple word, it above all reminds me of these two women. Though I have been surrounded with support over this last year in so many ways and by so many people, these two have been so much more for me than I deserve. I’m blessed to call them co-workers, friends, and struggle-buddies in this life. Over this last year they have intentionally checked in with me, prayed with me and for me, cried and laughed with me, and above all hoped with me. Jo and Kelly, you two challenge me, encourage me, and love me daily and I am so grateful for you. Thank you for sharing your life with me, for continually pointing me back to the cross and for intentionally choosing to share the weight of my burdens.

  1. I just wanted to stop by and offer support and love as someone struggling with many of the same issues as you. We have been trying to start our family for the last 18 months and have lost four babies so far. This project truly is a wonderful way to reflect on everything that has happened and I have been writing about this on my own blog, which is all about our journey so far.
    All the very best x
