I spent most of the last two days thinking about my upcoming surgery. It hit me Sunday night that I am going to be in a lot of pain, and unable to do the things I take for granted on a daily basis. That thought was overwhelming, and it has tried to consume my thoughts for the past couple of days. However, tonight I sat down for a minute in between finishing up dinner and starting laundry, and hopped on the computer to check blogs. MckMama's post tonight talked about being an 'island', and that was exactly what I felt like all day today. However, she goes on to talk about praying for others so that no one will feel that way. That really snapped me back into reality, and I realized that I had spent so much time the last two days thinking about myself that I haven't really prayed for others. Humbling.
