A Cup of Tea

Sometimes it's nice just to have a little encouragement. A cup of tea can't change grief, but if I could sit down with you and talk over that steaming mug, I would. Since I can't, here's the next best thing I can think of.

Head to the Teasta tea website and choose 2 different .3 oz samples of tea ($3.15 or less, each) and add them to your cart. Then head to check out and enter coupon code TRYME to receive both packages of tea for free, including free shipping.

I am in no way affiliated with this tea website and don't know how long their offer will last. When I submitted my request, it took three tries for the order to go through because their server was so busy, but I'm a tea lover, so I figured it was worth a few minutes to give it a try.

When I placed my order, I thought of you and how I would love to listen to your story over a cup of tea, share a hug, wipe some tears and pray with you tonight. Since I can't do those things in person, I'm posting this little "pick-me-up" as I'm praying for you. Please do take the time to share your story with me in the comments here, even if I've heard it before, so we can sip our tea together. {{{hug}}}

Hi Jenni, thank you for mentioning the tea offer. I am also a tea lover and went right to the site and ordered my two samples. Can't wait to get them in the mail! Your book and encouraging words have helped me get through some of the most difficult times in my life. My husband and I were diagnosed with unexplained infertility several years ago. We did many cycles of IVF with no success. In July 2009 we found out about a mother who wanted to adopt out her baby boy who was to be born that October. She selected us to be the parents. I went to all her prenatal appointments with her from July up until the baby was born. I was even in the delivery room. We had Braden Samuel for 2 months and then without any warning the birth mother asked for him back, only to give Braden to her sister, who still has him to this day. It was a very dark and painful time our lives. This happened a week before Christmas. We had spent all our savings on the lawyers and paperwork required for the adoption. We were broke and had nothing for Christmas. Even though it was a very sad time in our lives, it was probably one of the times that I felt closest to the Lord. Fortunately, my husband and I found out we were pregnant about a month later! It was a complete shock, and a total blessing. Jaden is now 5 1/2 months old, and I still look at him in amazement and awe. I continue to deal with fear and anxiety that something bad is going to happen to him, and that I will lose him. I know it is because I have dealt with so much loss. I just continue to pray that the Lord will protect him and help give me peace in knowing that the Lord will not let anything bad happen to him. Thank you for taking the time to read my story Jenni. God bless you for your ministry that is helping so many women who are dealing with infertility/loss.

Sincerely,
Danelle
