My mom got me a book (The Snow Globe by Sheila Roberts) a couple Christmas’ ago and yes I finally decided to sit down and read it. It was a quick read. I started it yesterday and just finished it. I love the books that you can’t put down and when you do it never takes long to finish them. 🙂
Here is the summary from the inside flap:
“On a blustery afternoon, Kylie Gray wanders into an antique shop and buys an enchanting snow globe. “There’s a story behind the snow globe,” the antique dealer tells her. The original owner, he explains, was a German toy maker who lost his wife and son right before Christmas. When the grieving widower received the handcrafted snow globe as a Christmas gift, he saw the image of a beautiful woman beneath the glass — a woman who would come into his life, mend his broken heart, and bring him back to the world of the living. The dealer also tells Kylie that the snow globe has passed from generation to generation, somehow always landing in the bands of a person in special need of a Christmas miracle.
Kylie could use a miracle herself, Maybe this Christmas the snow globe can bring her a new love. A hopeful shake leads her on an adventure that makes a believer out of her. When Kylie shares the story of the snow globe with her best friends — two women with problems of their own — they don’t believe it. But they’re about to discover that at Christmastime, sometimes the impossible becomes possible and miracles really do come true.”
Of course this story made me feel all warm and fuzzie inside. That is what they are supposed to do. And I couldn’t help but wish I could get my hands on that snow globe myself so I could give it a good shake to see what it showed me. But I am going to pretend I have a snow globe and each time I shake it, it shows me a scene of my husband, myself, our dog Buddy and our not-yet-conceived child.
With each set-back, I continue to believe that this will be our year to get pregnant and stay pregnant. I have to keep believing. There are so many miracles out there in everyday life, I have to believe that we will be blessed with one of them.
So I would suggest this as a good read. It reminds us to stay hopeful, and we can always use some of that!
Thanks for reading!
P.S. the darn doctor’s office that schedules the surgery called my cell phone this morning. Now I do not always have my cell phone on me when I am at home and I did not hear it. I have told them several times to CALL MY HOME PHONE. So I missed it and just got the phone message tonight! UGH! On my list to call 1st thing. First available appointment isn’t until March 14. I really hope that does not mess up April IVF!
