Been doing some thinking, a lot of praying, and have been busy with some other stuff.
Basically, it's about an English woman (nurse) who lives post WW2 with her husband and they go to Scotland to research his family history. While there, she finds a mini-stone henge and gets sent back 200 years in time to medieval Scotland. Then the story becomes a whirlwind of war, deceit, family, living pre modern medicine, rape, love, outlaws, and more! It's a fantastic story and I love the characters, Claire and Jamie!
I was drawn even farther in on the fact that Claire seems to be barren (or infertile) with her first husband after trying for years and, with no luck, tries to deal with it emotionally. The very last page of the first book, while she is with Jamie, she tells him she is pregnant though!
Anyhow, can't wait to start the next book!
Let's see...been working on homework. Been trying to find ways to make some extra money because money is ridiculously tight right now.
Nothing really new on the fertility front...the cyst is gone, still on the birth control pills...my body hates me. I could bitch and moan about this person or that person who I watched them announce their pregnancy at week 4 are ready to deliver...about my friends who's kids are already 1 or 2 in the time that we have been TRYING to have a second...but, it does no good. I'm glad that they have had healthy babies and healthy pregnancies, I really am happy for them. I know how blessed I am to have my miracle. I pray for those that have yet to experience the miracle of motherhood whom want it so badly and I pray for those babies who live with parents who don't want them. I don't have a "next step" yet...I am just trying to enjoy the beautiful daughter I have.
