Marvelous Mondays...

Today I am thankful for a small breakthrough.

Have you ever noticed all of the ads on the right side column of every Facebook page? I never really did until after I lost Claire. All of a sudden I felt as though I was being inundated with baby ads for everything from toys and strollers, to clothes and photography. You name it there, seemed to be a baby related ad for it.

In the beginning I would simple cry when I saw them. Then I wondered if Facebook would really listen to the feedback that they ask for about the ads. I started to write that my reason for not liking the ad was, “I am no longer pregnant.” After a couple of weeks of writing and not seeing any change I began to write, “My baby died.” And still no change so I then changed it up to a more “subtle” “MY BABY IS DEAD!! STOP. STOP.”

Well, as you can guess those ads kept popping up.

The breakthrough came yesterday.

I realized that it has been a couple of weeks since I have sent a message to Facebook about the ads. I realized that they really don’t bother me as much anymore and that I have come to terms with seeing them...

And it feels so good to let go.
