No weekend snapshots for the first time in the existence of this blog. A little update from my end of the world is in order. I had jaw surgery last Monday morning, hence my absence from staying in touch with all of you last week. It has been a tough recovery to say the least, but the very best part is that I am finally starting to feel better. Every morning I wake up and the healing is a little further along and that's amazing to see.
Surgery is an interesting thing, really. I have been so blessed to be free of health issues all my life so I didn't realize all of the things I've been taking for granted over the years. I am generally a pretty optimistic person, but having surgery and being in the early stages of recovery was scary and it was sometimes difficult to keep the positivity going. I realized that in my everyday life I complain so much, I stress all the time, and about the tiniest little things. I have so much to be thankful for and there is just no excuse anymore for me not to see that on a daily basis.
Also, a note on your comments. A few days after surgery I finally had the energy to check my e-mail and blog and I was literally floored. Just floored by your continuous support and attention even though I wasn't there to respond and hadn't given any explanation for my lack of response. Every once in a while I question why exactly I blog. Do any of you question it, too? Why do we spend so much time and energy on it? But then I see your constant support, I remember just how much I am learning from blogging and how much fun it is and all of my doubts are swept aside.
So that's a little update from my end. I just thought you should know. As always, thank you thank you thank you for following along. I hope you have a lovely start to your week!
