Location: Washington, United States

I began my TTC journey in January 2005. It finally worked with the 5th IUI and along came Eliana! I started trying for a second (T42) a little over a year later, and was thrilled to get pregnant on the second try this time. Jacob soon joined our family! Not sure if I am done at two, but come along for my journey in motherhood. If you stop by, please leave me a short note! I like to know when I have visitors. :)

Church Saga continued...

So this morning at church, I went in, found the women's table in the foyer, grabbed the paper with the Gclub info on it, and guess what?

Yep, patterns of grace (the other one I had emailed about..but never received a response) was no longer listed. I was very unhappy.

Then I went in, sat down, grabbed the welcome card and wrote on it that I had been attending for a year (truth is it has been a year and a half, but attendance maybe like 3/4 year) and that it just seemed wrong that I still didn't know one person's name. I mentioned that I tried the singles meeting and was the only childless person and that the whole reason I seek out singles groups is that it is too painful to be reminded that I am single and childless. I also said that I couldn't attend the women's groups because it was either on thursday morning when I obviously have to work since I am single or monday evening when I have class.

I seriously planned on putting the card in the offering basket, but I didn't...sigh. I am such a chicken.

I totally know what you mean. It is hard to find a group at church to hang out with. There are the marrieds, then the married mommies, then the single mommies. The true singles are few and far between. Being a single, Chrisitan 30-something year old is hard.

Thanks Michelle and Cindy, it really helps to have my feelings validated...sometimes I feel guilty for not doing more to fit in..but I just don't know how. Maybe I will be brave this week and leave the card in the offering.
