Dealing with the Holidays
Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart. - Winnie the Pooh
While the holidays can be hectic, they can also have the sweetest moments. Sometimes – especially a moment when everyone is busy, talking and laughing and distracted – I just sit back. I watch the younger kids giggling and playing, and the older kids joking and jostling, and the adults catching up and telling stories. The moments are good. The hustle and bustle is a lot to take on every year, and sometimes in the whirlwind it seems like it’s just too much. But in those moments, looking around the room and realizing your many blessings, the holidays are exactly right.
As I think about my blessings, my mind goes not only to my family, but to my patients. Every year I receive holiday cards from patients we journeyed with as they faced infertility. While all those moments at the holidays with family can be beautiful, sometimes they can be painful if you’re surrounded by others with children when you’re struggling to have them. Know yourself, and set limits for events that might be painful, but also try to appreciate the joy through the pain.
