During that process, I ran across a quote I found in 2005.
I found it in an email I wrote in 2005. I still don't know who said it. But when I emailed it to my friend, I wrote that it gave me chills when I read it for the first time. At the time, I was pregnant for the third time and full of hope again, and, little did I know, about to have my third miscarriage.
Here it is:
We must plant a seed of the thing
that we desire for our life
as though it were ours now.
that which I seek is now seeking me.
That last line slays me every time.
Tears and chills and hope, oh so much hope even when it seemed like there was no right to be anything but nothing, but hoped backed by a determination that we would not give up in the seeking, that we were not alone in the seeking.
I would eventually print the quote out and look at it every day while pregnant with Brody.
He was trying to get to me as much as I was trying to get to him.
Do you have any quotes that have stayed with you?
