I had never intended to sit down and write a post today, but as I was surfing around on Facebook trying to avoid the grueling task of going to Wal-Mart for my annual Christmas party that I am hosting on Saturday for my Dad’s side of the family (which I am super excited about), I decided to watch the new Coca Cola ad everyone is posting. But little did I know the emotional roller coaster it would take me on. I think there should have been a warning label for those trying to conceive. Yikes!
This ad made me smile and cry all at the same time. I cried because I want to experience stepping on Legos while walking down the hallway. I want to wake up in the middle of the night and feed a screaming, hungry baby boy. I want to have my house a wreck, Cheerios on the floor, and my drink spilled all over the place.
I cried because the lyrics of the song say, “You don’t know what it’s like…” and they are right, I don’t. I don’t know what it’s like, but there is one thing I do know and that is because of my hope in God and the price Jesus paid on the cross for my healing of PCOS, I will some day know…
I will some day know what it’s like to have a positive pregnancy test that turns into actually bringing home a baby. I will some day know what it’s like to deal with the screams, stains, and sleepless nights. I will some day know what it’s like to deal with all the chaos that is actually pure joy and happiness…and because I know this…I can also smile with tears in my eyes while I watch this commercial ad.
Thanks for the reminder Mr. Coca Cola Director of what I do know.
