a good day

February 29, 2012

Today might not be one of those perfect days.  Today is only one day after my daughter had yet another leg surgery..  it was a minor procedure this time, and she is already home, but I can’t help feeling sad.  Like a truck in a chest, needles in the heart sad.  To watch your only child go through something painful is a soul stripping experience, and it never gets easy.  But…  My daughter is amazing.  And strong.  Also, I get to be aware that every pain-free minute is something precious, an awareness that is so easily lost in everyday life.  A good day it is.
