Our Mini Linky Party | Week 76

I have a lot of things to be grateful for after this week. 

For those of you who follow me on Snapchat, you already know this but my mom had surgery this week. It was stressful, to say the least. We learned a few months back that she had a baseball-sized mass located behind her uterus, and she finally had surgery to have it removed this week. She was in surgery for hours, and when she was done her boyfriend had contacted me to let me know that she was stable (and then she was discharged from the hospital a few hours later). 

I am thankful she is okay right now, I am thankful that Adam is in good health and thankful I am in good health as well. I am thankful for the medical professionals who found my mom's mass and thankful to those who were able to help her successfully remove it. I am thankful my mom should feel less pain for now. And I am thankful for my friends and family who have reached out to support me through this with good thoughts and prayers for my mom's recovery. She is stable and she is well right now, and I only hope that she continues to be healthy and that she lives a long life. I spent a lot of time this week reflecting on mortality and how life is so fleeting, and it was just another reminder to just live life and be thankful for what I have.

  1. Oh thank you so much for featuring my Patriotic Rag Wreath!
    I'm very glad to hear that things went well with your Mom, and she is on the mend. That is very stressful to have a loved one go through surgery.
