lately i have been noticing words and feeling like they were written just for me. of course i know they were not but were meant for me to find just when i needed them. maybe you need them too?
"I do not understand the mystery of grace -- only that it meets us where we are and does not leave us where it found us." ~ Anne Lamott
i am in serious need of some grace right now.
monday morning i am returning to the hospital for major surgery. third in 2 years. 3 times is a charm?
i would much rather stay home and bask in possibly our warmest day so far . it is to be 70 degrees monday. figures.
me i will be wearing those god awful hospital socks with the grippers on both sides and no heel (what is up with those things? i mean really.) and that oh so flattering gown. as expensive as hospitals are, i would think they should supply a great pair of hand knit socks.
i will miss my family. there is nothing that terrifies me more than leaving them as i get put to sleep and all is out of my control. i. do. NOT. like. that. at. all.
i will not like returning broken and sore, just as spring is knocking on our door. i had other plans. better ones.
but life throws curve balls and i am trying my best to accept that and roll with the punches.
all will be ok. all will be ok. all will be ok. all will be ok.
think happy thoughts for my little family tomorrow please.
and i will pop in here in a few days and say hello once more.
be kind to one another. smile at strangers.
someone may be struggling with something big and your random kindness may just ease that burden.
