Tears Out of the Gray

No time for Part 2 this weekend, unfortunately. My mom was in town this weekend for some moral support (THANKS Mom!!). Had a blast with her and then spent all my extra time getting ready for a big presentation at work tomorrow (please wish me luck...SO nervous! :). But, I did want to write this quick drive by post to share this...

I was driving to the airport on Friday night to pick my mom up from the airport. It had been a very long day with lots of running around. I was tired and perhaps a little grumpy. Mat Kearney's "Closer to Love" came on the radio. I've probably heard the song before, but I guess I've never really listened to it. This time I did.

Next thing I knew I was in tears. It was this that got me:
She got the call today
One out of the gray
And when the smoke cleared
It took her breath away
She said she didn't believe
It could happen to me
I guess we're all one phone call from our knees

More specifically, I think it was this that really hit me:
I guess we're all one phone call from our knees

I think we've all had that phone call (IF-related or otherwise). The one that started us down this path. Or, worse yet, kept us on it...another bad news blow.

But, there are also the good news...no, the amazing, life changing, never thought this day would come, GOOD news phone calls, too. Those bring us to our knees, too. We've all had the first kind of phone call. Many of us wait for the second.

So, on Murgdan's beta eve, I send best wishes to her for that second type of phone call...with tears of joy out of the gray.

Also to Mrs. B, Jen, JackieMac, LowFatLady, and everyone else out there beginning cycles that will hopefully end in that second type of phone call, too, I hope along with you that it does.

And, for the rest of us somewhere in between, I leave the song that brought me to tears as we wait for our own "brought us to our knees" good news phone call...

Great post - I've certainly had that phone call, though it wasn't IF-related, and it changed everything.

Good luck for your presentation today. I don't like to gloat, but here in England it's a bank holiday today and as usual on the August bank holiday, we're - errrm - enjoying the grey sky and pouring rain... x

Good luck with your presentation seester!! :) I'm on about day three of an agonizingly long 2ww and I am praying more than I've ever prayed in my life for that good phone call.... aint it the truth that we're all one phone call away from our knees. Neat song, thanks for sharing.

One phone call away. Brutal, and so true.

We have a message on our machine from my OB, after she got back Brian's tests results. It basically said that we don't need to make a follow up appointment with her, but that we should go straight to an RE. Every time I run across it, my heart sinks. But I can't erase it for some reason.

I'm glad you had your mom to lean on, and I hope your presentation goes well!

Thank you. In August 2008 I got that terrible phone call...in August 2009 I got a phone call that produced the exact opposite reaction.

Thinking of you....and hoping you get yours one day.

I hope we all get ours one day... Oh now I need a tissue.
