I found myself sobbing yesterday for my dear friend Brenda. Who has just completed her closure cycle with a negative pregnancy test. Although Brenda and I live in the same state, we certainly do not live near each other. I have followed Brenda's story for years, and I finally got a chance to meet her (and her husband) in person in October of last year at CCRM in Colorado.

I have wanted this so badly for her, but now my heart is broken. I know that she will begin a new journey in light of this, and that this is not the end of the road for her, but it definitely is a huge loss - one that deserves much attention, grief, consoling, and compassion.

If you're able, head over to her blog and give her some much needed comfort.

2 Corinthians 1:3-5: Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.
