I tried to find the thread I posted a couple weeks back, but it is gone. :confused: Anyways it said some nasty things about CAF, for which I am very sorry. :( It's just that there is nowhere else for me to go for fellowship in dealing with my trials. The only other Catholic in my life is my mother and she's in very fragile health so I can't have heart to hearts with her anymore. My husband is a saint of a man and gives more than his fair share of help in carrying my heavy crosses. The only member of my parish I receive any help from during this difficult time is my priest, God bless him! And even he is coming to a loss of how to proceed with my spiritual direction. I have no Catholic friends save the ones I've made here. (I don't fit in anywhere in any groups of my parish! :()However, even they are moving on with their lives and I'm stuck in this time of seemingly endless suffering and pain unable to move any direction, but hoping it's forward. :gopray:
I'm going through a lot as some of you know. I haven't even posted the extent of my problems due to privacy. Just please know it's enough to make anyone break under it's pressure. It's not an excuse, but hopefully it explains things a bit.
Anyways, the CAF mother's day advertisements were just one more thing I could not be a part of here (and in the Church) it made me feel isolated and alone. And triggered a flood of emotions, for which I am truly sorry.
That being said, I'm trying, desperately to learn to carry these tremendous crosses with grace. My earlier post obviously shows that I'm far from it. :o I hope CAF and it's members can accept my sincerest apologies. I hope to return to these forums regularly after Mother's Day is over, as I cannot bear to see these advertisements due to my infertility and my own mother being very ill and quite possibly near death.
Once again, I am very sorry and hope I didn't hurt anyone during my outburst. :(
God bless you all. :hug3:
