Lee Ann Womack - I Hope You Dance

To my precious "in real life" friend who is newly pregnant after years of infertility and a recent (and emotional painful) third miscarriage--I say HURRAH! You are a brave woman and I love you!

For everyone out there who is struggling to stay "open to life."

After infertility....


a failed adoption...

infant death....

or a scary, bone-rattling ride with an older child through Children's National Hospital,

my strong Carmelite prayer for each one of you is:

"if you get the chance, to sit it out or dance...
I hope you dance!"

Because babies are worth the risk!


  1. this made me smile, my mom walked me down the aisle on my wedding day and gave me away. Afterward at the reception she had them play this song and we danced :)

    Hooray for your friend an you right in saying babies are worth the risk! I said that everyday ttc J and especially during my pregnancy! Prayers for a joyful pregnancy and healthy birth for your friend and her baby.

  2. 'Love this song and 'love to dance - esp. with my kiddos in the kitchen. Congrats to your friend!
