I had the pleasure of visiting family in Delaware this past week and now have some family visiting me from Alaska and Delaware. We ventured off to see an old Civil War fort and when I looked at the picture of myself, I was at a loss for words. Why is it, I see one thing in the mirror and another in pictures. This picture will help to keep me grounded in my decision to get the band.
(oh, and I do have two legs.) :)
This picture definitly opened my eyes.
As I mentioned, I was able to visit family. I had told two of my sisters and was taking this time to share my news with the other. I explained the procedure to her to eliminate any fears she may have. She saw my excitement and was on board immediately. Also, my oldest sister shared my news with her children (grown children). My niece wrote me the sweetest letter telling me how proud she is of me and how not to look at this as a failure or weakness (as many view it), but as success and strength. Needless to say, I cried. Oh how blessed I am to have this support group. My cup overruneth. :)
