A Letter To The Universe

Dear Universe,

I was going to write a letter to you about how I'm ovulating today and how it would be so cool to conceive my first child on my 24th birthday.

However, as you so often do, you showed me that things could always be worse.

In the few hours I've been awake, I learned that the husband of a dear friend has brain cancer and has a one shot chance of pulling through.

I also learned that my old manager, and friend, mysteriously disappeared while on his evening run last night.

So, Universe, while I would absolutely love to conceive on my birthday, I would much rather you focus your efforts on my two friends. They need all the good that's floating around to be pinpointed at them so that they can get through these difficult times in their lives. Even though I feel like I've been waiting so long, I can wait a little while longer.

I'm not a religious or praying person, so I'm just going to send my good thoughts your way. Hopefully you'll get them and pass them onto my friends.

Keep them safe,


  1. Thinking of your friends.. I'm not religious either, but I'll hope for them. I hope you find some joy in this birthday, despite the troubles.

  2. Happy birthday! May all your dreams come true.

  3. you are the greatest person. the world needs more of you.
    adore you.
    happy birthday my sweetest friend!
    {and i will be hoping you can conceive on your birthday! or at least in your birthday month!}

  4. Happy Birthday! I hope 24 brings you your baby =)

    Also, hoping your friends are okay. Things like that certainly do put everything into perspective.

  5. Oh, wow, that is horrible news. I will certainly keep them in my prayers. I do think that is what honestly helped us keep a good head throughout the fertility process...if you stop and count the blessings you do have once in awhile, you normally find they are too many to list. I hope you do have that one big blessing coming your way this month though!

  6. Happy birthday! I pray that God heals your dear friends cancer (He is a powerful man), your friend is found, and you conceive! I'm sure this is super stressful, but you have a team of supporters!

  7. Oh goodness. Sending well wishes and prayers for your friends!

  8. I'm so sorry about your friends. Will pray for them.

    And I'm embarrassed to admit that I totally thought you were religious. I guess just based upon the "cross" in your blog header. Now that I think about it, it looks much more like a plus sign than a Christian cross, but that's what I had been assuming all this time. Funny, right?

    1. Bahahaha, ya it's supposed to be a plus sign from a pregnancy test.

  9. Happy Birthday... What a sweet wish. I'm so sorry to hear about your friends. <3
