Recently my family went through some trying times to include a surgery for my baby girl’s eyes. I can say that even being deployed to a war zone didn’t come close to the stress and fear that I had when they wheeled my baby girl back for her surgery.
Today, we got some really great news from her doctor. The surgery seems successful and my daughter’s eyes are doing so well that they think her vision is better than 20/20. 🙂 I can’t tell you how relieved I was to hear that, it literally was like this huge weight was lifted from my shoulders. My daughter, who has no idea the stress her mother is under, is just happy to be out of the exam room that we had been stuck in (and had played with all the instruments in there – hey, she’s three and we were bored) for over thirty minutes.

On the drive home, I couldn’t help but say a quiet prayer of thanks for these blessings. It is so easy to become overwhelmed with things in life that I think it happens that we can sometimes forget what we have. So, I had to take a moment tonight to just out loud say, “Thank you!” to whomever was listening, for this moment!
