Some are work-up-worthy, but most of them are not.
Today, I took my 9 year old to the doctor because she’s had severe abdominal pain for two days. Fever spiked yesterday. First thing this morning we were in the pediatrician’s office. Next, one hospital for bloodwork. Then another hospital for a CT scan. And now, an appendectomy later, I’m sitting by my daughter as she rests and recovers.
When she first woke up from surgery – she asked for me.
Searched for me to help comfort her.
That moment hit me so hard, even now I get teary-eyed thinking about it.
She needed to know I was near.
So many things in my life suddenly dimmed in the light of this motherhood calling. What a blessing! What an honor!
What a reminder that there are BIG deals in life and little deals in life – and majority of the ‘bad’ things are very small.
This just in – here’s a picture of Lydia just a few minutes ago (7:45) She wanted people to see that all was well – except the fact that she cannot have ‘real’ food for a while. Bummer! She requested Bojangles!
