In a nutshell, work has been non-stop; Pesach preps have come and gone; Pesach itself was lovely. Things have been going well otherwise. I'll post a detailed update once I have time to get it all down.
There was a story I wanted to talk about when it was fresh in the news. Anyone how knows me knows I watch the TODAY show regularly (ever since the whole Ann Curry debacle #teamann but that's another story). Dylan Dreyer is one of the meteorologists and she's fab. I follow both her and her husband, who's a cameraman on Nightly News, on insta. They're lovely people and it seems like they have it all.
Recently she opened up about her struggle with secondary infertility. When she and her husband talked about it together on the show, something they said really resonated: "Pain is pain, joy is joy." The same morning they talked about their fertility issues, another cast member announced her pregnancy with her surprise, unexpected third baby. Dylan and her husband were clear that another person's joy is their joy, and their pain is their pain. One doesn't take away from the other. You can be happy for someone else's joy while still feeling your own feelings. At the same time, no one needs to compare one pain to another. If one lady had three miscarriages it doesn't disqualify someone who had "only" one. Each person is entitled to their own feelings. We're here to lend support to one another and that's the part that matters.
