I've been out of commission for a little while due to surgery. I'm still in pain but at least i'm finally able to get around. I don't really like the idea of not being able to do things. I'm sure no one does. My daughter took the day off work to come and get me from the hospital and my husband took the week off and has been taking really good care of me and I appreciate it so much.

I turned 41 the day I got out of the hospital. I was in a lot of pain, but my family made me smile. My mother, sister, and niece snuck in with balloons and birthday cake and everyone sang happy birthday to me. I actually forgot the way I was feeling for a moment.

My 40th year was definitely one of growth and discovery. I learned so much about myself and those around me. I'm so thankful for the entire experience. I'm different, but also the same. I have recognized the improvements that need to be made within and around me. I know that I have a lot of work to do.

There's really nothing better than opening your eyes to the world. I'm ready for whatever will come next.

I'm not sure when I will be blogging next, but I have been waiting for the day when i'd make it to the computer. I have another week of recovery ahead of me and hopefully i'll feel like blogging again soon.

Take care folks.

I'm so very happy that you made it home. Sometimes the smallest surgeries have complications. I'm extra Happy that you celebrated your 41st Birthday. I really love people in the 40 and over crowd (smile) I'm tripple happy that your family is there for you. We can't pick our family, but it sounds like if you could have, you would have picked the ones you've got. I hope that the hubby cooks as well as he loved you all these years. Nothing worse than being confined to the bed and the food isn't good (lol) Rest up and looking forward to hearing from your twin, SBW!

Love, peace and blessings!
