i had a VERY human moment yesterday.

one of my close friends offline (i only have a few good offline friends) told me last month she and her hubby were going to try to get pregnant again. (their daughter just turned one a few months ago). i was happy for them, and knew it wouldn’t take long for them to conceive again.
well yesterday she called to tell me she is pregnant. i was happy i was fine i was ok. then i asked if they have decided on a name yet – they really want a boy – and she said her husband decided on jeremiah. JEREMIAH – my firstborn son’s name. i feel SO territorial about it and feel guilty about how hurt this makes me. she KNEW this was going to be my first born son’s name. she had other bible names picked out – samuel, jacob, nathaniel, and then lets her husband pick a name that she knew what my favorite boy’s name.
it was like a knife in my heart!!
i just wanted to get it out. please pray for me about this.
i’m going out with my mom. will be back soon.
God bless.

    Hi Jenn! I know you have not heard from me in a while, I have just been busy working and stuff! I just wanted to tell you I would probably feel the same way as you about the whole name issue. I think that they could have possibly decided on another name, especially because they knew how much you love and want to name your future son that. I will continue praying for you!!!
    God Bless,

    Don’t sweat the small stuff!! My oldest son told me the other day…now this is my child *grin* that God put each of us here for a purpose and life is too short to let things get in the way!! So they name their son Jeremiah…he won’t be the first nor will he be the last…as far as I know there is no rule that says you can’t still use that name 🙂 Timothy is my favorite…it means "child of God" *HUGS* I’m not trying to belittle your feelings…I’m just trying to help you see it’s not worth damaging your friendship….think about it!!

    Can you not *both* have children by the same name? Is it painful to both have sons called ‘Jeremiah’? Geez.

    I tell ya Jenn.. I feel like I’m reading my own journal when I read yours girl… I felt the EXACT same way when someone who’d been married a millisecond got pregnant right away & named their first born child the name we’ve picked out for a boy… Spencer… and what made this worse… is that their last name started with SP too… I pray that little boy doesn’t lisp 🙁

    Big hugs to you honey… I know the feeling!! 🙁
