Hugs From Afar

Hugs From Afar

We've always called them that; hugs from afar. Thoughts of love and concern for someone special in our lives. If we're apart and we talk on the phone, we always begin the conversations with; "I love your face" and end the conversations with "hugs from afar".

Today I need some hugs from afar. My baby girl, though not a baby anymore at 19, is having surgery. I'ts 5:30 in the morning and we're about to leave for the hospital. It's an outpatient procedure, but still surgery nonetheless. I'm nervous but I know everything will be okay. On the other hand, Averie has never had surgery. I tell her she's pretty lucky in her young life to have never had to experience it. She's scared. Scared to the point of temporary insanity. Just the lab work last week was a horrible, heartwrenching experience. It will muster all the mommy-strength I have to get both of us through it.

Please keep her in your thoughts. Whatever strength, peaceful thoughts, you can send to her via good vibes on a gentle breeze is enough. This mother will be forever grateful.
