I'm going to be honest here. Often, I'm a very petty self-absorbed person. I don't give thanks enough. I don't appreciate enough. Today I am humbly and truly thankful. If you've been reading this blog for any time at all, you probably caught on to the fact that my family is everything to me. I'm absolutely blessed to come from a super close, loving family. We don't fight. We just have fun together, and I am thankful for that. Today I am extra thankful because my daddy had surgery yesterday and it was a little scary. He did great! He's recovering well and the surgery went smoothly. There were no glitches or problems. Let's get real though; it's dang scary when someone you love has surgery. There is so much out of your control. You just have to let it all go and have faith that your family will be taken care of. It's so frustrating when you can't do anything to help, because there's just not anything you can do. I did get to talk to him on the phone. He was cracking jokes and being himself which made me feel tons better. I can't wait to lay my eyes on him and know he's okay. If you get a chance, pray for quick healing. He's got some grandpa-ing to do soon!
