A friend and I were talking several years ago about one day becoming mommies.  Don't most women do that at some point in their early years?  My friend said that she would never want to be pregnant at the same time as her close friend, or her sister.  She pointed out that if one of them lost their baby, how hard it would be to see her friend continue through pregnancy and have a healthy baby.

Today, my friend had a miscarriage.  My heart aches for her.  How quickly joy can turn into sorrow.  Though I am not currently pregnant, what do I do the day I have a big announcement to make?  I have wondered lately what the best way would be to share good news when someone else's heart is broken.

Please pray for my friend and her husband.  It doesn't seem real to me, and I'm sure not to them either.  They are trusting the Lord and that amazes me to see.

"As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things." ~ Ecclesiastes 11:5
