In about 10 hours...

I'll be heading into surgery. And I'm okay with it. I always panic, stress, freak - right before life-changing events. But when it comes to facing it - I usually do so with a calm that comes not only from inside me - but from God.

My cousin Denise sent me a beautiful message today. She truly lifted my spirits and put things into perspective.

Yes, we've gone through more bad than good - but the good was always better than the bad. We have our baby, my infection is healed and soon - my back will be good as new.

We've put so much into God's hands (some wonderful advice Cerise Smith gave to us when Sadie was sick) and we will continue to do so. He only gives us what we can handle - and apparently, he thinks I'm pretty strong. Hopefully, this is a new beginning - for all of us!

I'm so proud of you, Michelle. With your positive attitude and your faith in God, you are going to do well. We will continue to pray for you as you recover from surgery. May God's peace guard your heart always.

Mary actually blogged tonight about how well you're doing! I was so glad to hear the good news. We'll be praying that you'll go home tomorrow so you can give Sadie a big smooch!
