In The Trenches—The Founder’s Daily Report:  Day 348:  Break-in!

Day 348:

Surgery was successful!  Thank you to everyone for all of the beautiful love and light and prayers.  My heart and my family thank you so much!

The patient is resting comfortably and doing great!  I decide it’s okay to drive home last night.  I’m on the phone with Uh-Mazing Romantic Partner when I pull in the garage and park.  I walk toward the house and notice the kitchen light is on.

Anniversary surprise! 

“I don’t remember leaving that light on,” I say, my heart immediately starting to race.  “Oh my god, someone has broken in.”

I’m about to call 911 when Uh-Mazing Romantic Partner says, “I wonder who it could be?”

I have a moment of dawning realization when I see suitcases parked by the laundry room door.

“No way!” I scream.

I came home from an unexpected, challenging and stressful 36-hour experience to find Uh-Mazing Romantic Partner had flown in from Denver to surprise me for our 10-year anniversary.  Now, he is just what the doctor ordered!

Feeling the love.

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…surprises.
