"I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much." ~Mother Teresa

I don't think that this life was ever intended to be easy. I know that we are here to learn and to grow, and a free, easy ride is definitely not going to help us out there. Why does it sometimes have to get downright dirty then?

There is a lot of tragedy in this world, and unimaginable things actually happen to people.... people who you wonder how in the world they do it. They do though. They get through those unimaginable life events, they move on, they grow, they learn, and sometimes they have enough strength to hug someone who is going through what they once endured and give the exact support they need.

I do tell myself often, we will get through this. We always get through everything, and we have experienced some not so fun circumstances. I think back on one of the most heart wrenching things I've ever had to go through and that was losing our baby girl, {Mya}. You hear of 2nd and 3rd trimester losses, but never think it will happen to you. Although it was heart wrenching, I got through it. Although I miss her, I'm still here, and have found happiness in my life regardless of the traumatic even I had to endure.  I have found reason as to why it happened.... because I really, truly believe that everything happens for a reason.... and sometimes we just have to search for that reason.  I found a rainbow at the end of my storm and that rainbow is a beautiful, precious little girl that I can't get enough of.  If there was a Mya, there'd be no Ella.

I wish God didn't trust me as much as he does sometimes, but the thing is he does trust me. He knows that I will find a way to learn and grow from the experiences that I have to go through, but I still sometimes wonder why. I do have enough faith, however, to know there definitely is some reason. If I stick around and try to figure it out I usually find the answer, and then try to accept it, learn from it and more importantly grow from it.

We might not like that God trusts us as much as he does, but the thing is he does trust us, and that in itself is an honor.

I understand your feelings bout your loss. I have lost 2 babies, 3 if you count spencers twin that was stuck in my tubes and lost before I knew the twin was there.
but I also look at it the same way you do, if I would have had those two babies then I wouldnt have michael or Hannah. I was 13 weeks with both when I miscarried..

**hugs**

Ha! I can't figure out what the date is. I commented on an old JAMM post. :)

I am so sorry about your loss. I can't imagine that devastation. I am so happy you can feel emotion about it and also that you see the rainbow (Ella) behind the clouds.

That is very motivating Amanda. Luv you!

(okay, I am linking up this week! I finally feel I have something to contribute)

I know how you feel--I miscarried between my 2 beautiful daughters. I wasn't as far along as you, but I still wonder how things would be now :) I know God will not gives us more we can handle, we have to trust in him as he trusts in us.

This quote from Mother Theresa has gotten me through many challenges in life. And I know it will be a favorite for many years to come.

Wishing you a scent-sational Monday!

Entering my comment for your giveaway ;o) Nice to hear that you have such a positive attitude. I have to admit that my attitude is pretty negative and I really need to change that!

Thanks for the entry.

It's hard to find appropriate words to say.... I find comfort in your positive attitude about it all. The hope that you instill in others that might read this, that somehow, through it all, it can be okay, that life moves on, but the heart never forgets and keeps on loving what is missing.

every time you talk about Mya, it touches me in a way emotionally, that I will never be able to explain, no matter how many times I hear her story!♥

Great post! We have more in common than I knew...I've lost 4 babies total...3 were 1st trimester, but my last one was a little girl at 5.5 months. I'm sad to learn that you're part of the club no one wants to be a member of as well. I haven't had time to come up with a post to link up with school starting this week, but love the idea...and I do want to be entered in your giveaway! :-)
