Links For Life

Spreading the message that “all Life is good,” one Link at a time.

On Miscarriage and Mordor – “It doesn’t mean that we cannot hope and pray for children to fill our lives.  But we need to remember that a child is not a thing to collect and covet; it is a person of it’s own infinite worth and dignity.  It is something we should desire for it’s own good and it’s own worth – not the good it might do to us or the worth we assign it.  It is not something we should let rule our thoughts or our lives, because no good will ever come from dwelling indefinitely on what could be and never stepping into the light of what is.”

Bach The Rabbit – “It is often said of parents of former times that they only had large families because they were seeking help to till the fields or because infant mortality was high and contraception unavailable. Supposedly they were selfish and only had children for utilitarian reasons or were uncontrollable rabbits. While today’s enlightened parents have fewer children but want them for the right reasons.”

We Said Yes Too – “Because we said yes, too. We said “yes” on our wedding day when asked if we would accept children lovingly as gifts from the Lord. We said “yes” with every marital embrace, hoping we would be pregnant this time. We said “Yes, I should have expected it by now”, when our twelfth test in a row broke our hearts with one line instead of two.”

And this Formula Commercial somehow. Really just because it made me laugh a little, then kind of roll my eyes a little, but it makes a good point right?

    Thanks for collecting these :) “We said Yes, too” was especially moving. A friend just had an ectopic rupture last week (bled internally and had to have 3 transfusions), and is now grappling with losing a baby, almost dying, and losing even more probability of conceiving again.
