Day 17 – Being There for My Friend

Today’s post is late and short.

We are a group of 9 friends. One of my friends has a daughter who was recently diagnosed with scoliosis. Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning. Today she needed her friends, so we were all there giving her support, letting her speak her fears that she can’t do in front of her daughter.

I told her that while we were pregnant, our biggest fear was delivering a healthy baby and everything after that would be easy. Never in a million years would I think that we would experience such heartache for our beautiful girls (more on my girl on 3-21-19). All we can do is be the best mom for our daughters and pray that everything will be OK.

Prayers for my sweet friend, for her sweet beautiful daughter, and for the entire surgical team performing the surgery.

I will be teaching tomorrow, but my heart and mind will be preoccupied!

  1. Thank you for sharing this slice of your mind and heart. We go about our days, and tasks that seem mundane resonate with new meaning when we know others are suffering. We appreciate every second we have with those we love, showing love in more conscious ways. You are a good friend. Keep us posted on the surgery and will look forward to 3/21.
