Find my post about “love for the sake of loving” here. It really is what we try to make the heart of this blog all about. 🙂
Also, THANK YOU DEARLY for all of the kind wishes you sent my way over the last few days. I appreciate them all so much. Things went so well with my surgery. My thoughts were calm. When it was time for me to go down the hallway away from Danny, I cried a tiny tear when I said good-bye. I just felt so much love for him and gratitude for all his sweetness that morning. As I awaited my turn for the surgery, I tried to meditate a bit. I also felt so thankful for the kindness of the staff – the man who brought all the patients heated blankets. The nurses who attended to all of us there waiting in our hospital gowns. A few nurses asked what I did for work. 🙂 That turned into a lovely conversation leading right up to my surgery. It turns out there was never even time for a moment for fear to creep in. I was very grateful. And when it was all done, I was so happy to see my dear husband. I cried a little tear again when he came to my bedside, just feeling so much love.
