This Week.....

Special order beads by Roberta Warshaw

My mom's surgery is scheduled for Friday. I don't think I have ever felt this scared and nervous in all my life.

I am going to try and remain positive and hopeful that all will be well. I have cleared everything from my calendar so I can just be quiet and meditative and send positive thoughts out into the universe.

I am also working on some custom orders. The above bead is one of them. I like the colors. They are full of life and hope.

Something I sorely need this week.

Let me tell you...don't worry. I hve had a couple of surgeries in my life. Recently and 20 years ago. The strides they have made in medical care in the last 20 years blew me away!. Your mom will be fine, but remember, we are ALL sending positive thoughts and healing energy.
xx, Carol

Positive thoughts and energy headed your way. Do you have someone to hang out with you while your Mom is in surgery? I hope so. It will help while you wait. xox

Thank you so much everyone for your kind thoughts and wishes.

And yes, Barbara, I will have my 90 year old father with me. This month is their 63rd wedding anniversary.

Roberta, that bead is adorable! I really love the colors you used and the tiny clay flower you incorporated.

I can understand being nervous about Friday. The idea of surgery, and the images it can evoke, are scary, no doubt! But you're doing the right thing, clearing your schedule, and it sounds like your mom is in good hands.

I'll be thinking of you! *Hugs.* We're here whenever you need support and encouragement.

A number of years ago I had some abdominal surgery. One of Bruce's sisters told me afterward that she had worn a shirt of mine all day on the day of my surgery. It was one of those really thoughtful things that was going on that I never knew about at the time. She said it helped her think about me and deal with her own feelings of powerlessness. I try to remember to do this too when someone I know is going through surgery. I don't know why, but it provides a little comfort, and it helps me feel like I am doing "something."
I'll be thinking of you on Friday. I'm glad your dad will be with you. Your parents celebrating 63 years together is remarkable!
