I feel like when you are dealing with infertility you do a lot of enduring.

Endure: (v)
1.Suffer (something painful or difficult) patiently
2.Tolerate (someone or something)
3.Remain in existence; last

First you endure the diagnosis (or lack there of), then the treatments, the side effects, the set backs, the waiting, the negative results, another period and doing it all over again. I can't honestly say I've always endured infertility patiently, or that I've always tolerated it, but I've lived it and I'm still here.

I spent a little time with my good pal google and came up with some pretty inspiring quotes that I thought I'd share with all of you....

"A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles."
.Christopher Reeve.
(Go ahead, add HERO to your resume... you deserve it!!)

"I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars."
.Og Mandino.

"It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience."
.Julius Caesar.

"Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward."
.Henry Ford.

“What was hard to endure is sweet to recall.”
.French Proverb.

These are great quotes. I know while we were struggling every month, I had times where I felt so worthless. I mean here I am a woman and I can't do the one thing I felt I was put here to do and that was become a mom. I had so many friends and family though tell me how strong I was and how they admired my determination because they felt if they were in my shoes, they probably wouldn't be like me. It's amazing that honestly while I felt so down, I had so many looking up to me. If anything, I look back now and that makes me feel so proud! We do need to add the word Hero to our resume!
