World Aids Day is a positive one for me!
« on: December 01, 2006, 03:36:20 PM »
I decided to try to have a positive outlook with this disease. Today I woke up a little depressed because of Worlds Aids Day but then....
I had an ultrasound and got to see that little life moving around inside me!
Put things into perspective for me.

Aw, thanks for making me smile, Trying! You brought back some good memories for me... twenty years ago when I first saw my own daughter via ultrasound. And isn't the heartbeat amazingly fast?

I'm glad you had something so precious to lift your spirits today.

That's a wonderful story, trying.

It's also wonderful how sometimes we can make a 180 degree turn in mood with such experiences.

Best of luck for you and the new littlie.
