Grandma’s Watching Over Me – The Crystal Pineapple Heirloom
How are you doing today?
As I sit here writing this post, I am filled with so much love.
Truly, the amount of support the community that Bumps to Baby has gained is unbelievable. I never fathomed when I posted the first photo of my feet up in our rocking chair after my egg retrieval that it would open up this world of faith.
Nor did I ever imagine it would help foster so many amazing friendships. For this alone, I am forever grateful.
This past month a few women in the private Bumps to Baby community have finally seen their two pink lines!
It brings true tears of joy to see their comments in the group… at last, a BFP!
I can hear the emotion from their words coming off the screen!
From the sincerest place in my heart, I am so happy for them. I can honestly say I have not one ounce of jealousy.
Because they get me, I get them, and in this crazy world of infertility, it’s a win for all of us when anyone sees the brighter light.
Sure, some days it’s easier than others to process, but most days, I have a new found appreciation for the current path I’m on.
Part of this I am attributing to my Sweet Grandma Watching Over Me!
Well, I have been blessed with this Crystal Pineapple Heirloom, passed down to me from my lovely mom.
For those who don’t follow me over on Shaw’s Simple Swaps, I had a very strong relationship with my late Grandma. She was my cheerleader, an amazing friend and one of the most wonderful women I have ever met.
She also loved shiny, pretty things!
So, when my mom was a new mother with three little ones running around the house, my amazing Grandma gifted her this crystal pineapple 🍍.
She told my mom this was a symbol of hope, of love, of life.
Flash forward nearly 30 years and my mom found this gem in her cabinet. When she realized how much hope the pineapple symbol provided me with me, she decided to pass it down to me.
When she gave it to me on Mothers Day, I was filled with so many emotions. I felt like my Grandma was giving me a big hug from heaven, telling me that she’s got my back on this bumpy road to baby.
So, friends, as life continues to carry on and I’m left sorting through this infertility journey, I know I’ve got the best cheerleader watching over me.
I look up from my desk, I stare at my crystal pineapple heirloom, and I know one day, one way, I’ll see my pink two lines too.
Lot’s of hope, love and baby dust to you all!
