Well, it is Christmas Eve, and I know us IFs tend to be pretty bummed out at Christmastime. This is our first IF Christmas - last year we were still trying and hopeful that conception would be just around the corner. Being our first IF Christmas, not our second, I think it making it much easier for us than some others.
So, to focus on people that had it worse than us, I bring you the Coventry Carol. Now I remember in Sunday School when I was little, you hear about Herod slaughtering all the babies in Bethlehem, and I thought to myself, "Ho Ha! They were too clever for him! He didn't get the baby Jesus!", but now that I am a little older, I can think more about those Mothers that lost babies in this Massacre of the Innocents.
Which is worse than not ever having one of your own, I think.
So, if you're feeling gloomy, take a listen. It always makes my eyes leak a little.
