Surgery Day for Dakota
Many thoughts drift in and out of my mind as I sit in this hospital waiting for my 3 year old daughter Dakota to get tested for the COVID-19 virus. Not because she is sick and showing symptoms but because she has to test negative in order to have her tonsils and adenoids removed.
It has been a while since I have communicated with you all through my blog post; just know that a lot has transpired since then. A lot of good, some bad but overall a necessary process! I am learning more and more about life as the days rapidly pass by. My journey with not only Dakota but my other children as well is showing me how to be steadfast and diligent in all areas of their life. As parents we are needed as nurturers, healers, counselors and leaders; I mean the list goes on and on. Even with all we give, we must learn that we have to continuously build ourselves up as well, how can we give if we’re empty?
At some point we crash it’s like burning a stick at both ends. We are all definitely going through some trying times right now and some may have uncertainty in what tomorrow will bring but this is the time we lock in and kick start our faith. Dakota is having surgery at this very moment! I felt it was imperative for me to communicate with you all right now so my raw emotions and feelings is transferred into this script.
Was I nervous? YES!
Did I cry? YES!
Am I a little overwhelmed? YES!
But at the end of it all I know there is a God who brought Dakota through back then, so I trust and believe He will do it again!
My good people, in all areas of your life, be encouraged and know that we all go through different seasons for a reason! In the end it will all be for our good. I pray these words will reach hearts on today and moving forward.
From my heart to yours!
Peace and Blessings
