And all through the house, not a creature was stirring… except for me and my racing brain that won’t. shut. off. already…. Ugh. So, I thought I’d take a few minutes to write myself a love note of sorts to be read down the road when I know I’ll need it the most!
Dearest me, Hello gorgeous! Just wanted to remind you of a few things before your “big day” tomorrow. You are an amazing soul with a capacity to love and laugh and an uncanny ability to remain positive when things aren’t so. You are strong in mind, body (even if it doesn’t feel like it right now) and most importantly, spirit. You are blessed with family and friends who love you, who are praying for you and who will take care of you. You are blessed with an amazing surgeon, nurses and health insurance that allows you to have this procedure done when there are many others out there who might not have that luxury. You have all the tools you need for a successful recovery, and you have so many people on your side! But most of all, missy, you have a God who is capable of healing, will cover you with protection and will love you and remain patient with you as you are cursing the heavens out of frustration and pain. After time, this will all be a distant memory of “remember when I had surgery?” And you will walk, and exercise and move and stretch like a band new person. You got this, girl!
