Well…sigh… this is gonna be a tough one to write. My thoughts have been racing around for the last couple of days, so bear with me if my words today aren’t as succinct as they should be. I had planned on this week’s newsletter being entirely different. The first half of my week was spent in upper Michigan, at a cabin on a lake with my husband and two close friends. We laughed, ate good food, played games, laughed some more, made daily stops to the local “House of Flavors” ice cream shop, watched gorgeous sunsets over Lake Michigan, laughed even more, and basically unplugged from all news. It was uplifting and restful. I was going to write this week about how important rest was to our human souls and spirits and how God honors rest. But that will have to wait for another week because on Friday, all hell broke loose.
It’s always risky to share your own story. But, I believe it can be cathartic for the writer and extremely helpful for the readers. Thank you for sharing your story, and for eloquently, and without judgment, speaking your mind. ♥️
I agree 100% with you. I too am one who went thru this when I was younger and am not ready at the age of 69 to talk about it. I am grateful that I was able to be safe during my procedure. My prayers for the women of the future. 🙏🙏
Thank you for sharing your story, standing up for life, AND a woman’s right to choose, which go hand in hand. I pray your words help people who rejoiced over this ruling understand more of the reality of what’s at stake as we move towards a Christian theocracy run by men who really only want power and control.
Thank you for writing such an authentic piece from your very personal experience. I love the spin on Pro Women. I stand with you on that Marcia.
Hey there... Marcia, I am so sorry you went through that. I cannot even imagine how terrified you had to have been, not to mention the physical and emotional pain left in the wake of this. While we may disagree on some important things, I want you to know that I love you and think of you often. It would be so much easier if I could just invite you over for coffee and chat face to face.... but I suppose we are limited to this kind of platform given the distance. I miss hearing you sing. I doubt you'll ever tour near where we live, but if you do, it would be great to visit. Much love to you and your sweet family. - Amber
Thank you for sharing. I agree wholeheartedly with you. I personally know a nurse that had 4 abortions for birth control means!🤬 This is what makes my blood boil. We were never able to have children. But suffered numerous early miscarriages. Even though I still feel that it’s a woman’s choice. If men could get pregnant, this would not be an issue.
