There are countless others who continually ask me how I’m feeling and if we need any help. I usually turn them down and insist that we’re fine, but just knowing that the concern is there helps me immensely.
I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the outpouring of love that has been shown towards me. And even though I feel like I can’t do anything in return to show these people how grateful I am, I hope that I can pay it forward someday. When I am feeling better, or when my children are grown up a bit, I hope I can help out other expecting moms that feel like I do now. And tell them that I remember what it was like. I hope I can show the same kindness that has been shown to me in this stage of life. Because I will be forever grateful.
