Now that Polly's second surgery is behind us and she seems to be healing, I'm thinking about:
*Elaina's sleep consultation today (I'm taking her to a sleep doctor).
*Our insurance issues.
*Zoya's disappointment that I can't come to her Valentines Day party at school next week b/c of Polly's neuro follow-up.
*The writing class I started last night and the joy I felt being in a room of strangers who didn't know I was a mother of four, a pastor's wife, or that my daughter had brain surgery last week.
*Evie's Ukrainian passport.
*Two meals that were dropped off at our house this week.
*Lent coming up and what I am going to give up or add.
*Meeting with a friend to talk more about Jesus.
*Sergei juggling work, family and two classes towards his Master's degree this semester.
*The bottle of Chardonnay in the fridge.
*All the prayers and support we've received through Polly's surgeries.
*Making time for more discussion in our MOPS meetings.
*Evie and Polly and their respective eating issues.
*A sweet little girl named Eden who is battling cancer.
*Turning 35 in March and feeling frumpy and tired. A couple of weeks ago I bought a box of Loreal hair color and it turned my hair a bit red. Not a great look.
*Evie taking two steps back in our bonding after our surgery week.
*A woman we are trying to help who had 25 week premies. One baby passed away and the other is at a hospital here in Chicago.
