I spent the day getting ready for my daughter to have her tonsils taken out
tomorrow. Nervously shopping and making favorite foods knowing that food 
will not be easy the next couple weeks.
It's funny how difficult it can be sitting still and being there for someone else-
especially when they are going through something challenging- 
I'd rather have it be me.
Being strong as a witness to someone else's pain- allowing them to be strong too
Ugh- who am I kidding it's hard watching your kids go through a painful experience
Here's hoping it will go smoothly and be done with it :)
