A brief note...

Dear Friends,

It's been such a long time since my last post and I've missed all you very much.

Tomorrow, I am going to have surgery on my wrist which, I'll admit, makes me a little nervous. I am going to have a metal plate permanently inserted in my left wrist to help stabilize the bones that were broken in December. Apparently, the fracture isn't healing as it should and needs to be additionally supported by the plate. The good news is that once we get through tomorrow and a few weeks of recovery, my wrist should be almost 100 percent...and I'll be back to share more stories of my beloved son, Christian.

For now, I must say that I Love You all for continuing to travel on this journey of faith, love, and healing with me and my family. It means the world to me that you are all a part of helping to preserve the precious memories I have of my little boy.

Hopefully, I will be able to manage a little better after tomorrow...it's been difficult and awkward having the use of only my right hand...especially considering, that I am left handed! I tire easily which is why I must keep this post short...I hope you understand.

With Love,

Leah

I'll trade ya! I injured my left wrist a few weeks ago and I am right handed. So amazing what one small injury can do to an entire body! Kinda like the church huh? Take care Leah.

i've thought about you & your hubby alot lately - and just praying that everything is good, that your heart is healing - and i hope you can take this time after the surgery to relax, and enjoy some time to do nothing. :) thanks for letting us strangers "walk" this road with you.
blessings!

Leah: praying you heal well, and that the physical healing is a visual to you of the beautiful healing transpiring in your spirit. Just as your bone will always bear the mark of its injury, so will your spirit. But God is a Restorer, as we are all witnessing through your sharing. May peace bless your home and heart. I look forward to hearing from you more.
