The First Day of the Rest of My Life

(I read an article about Hoda Kotb and the adoption of her daughter on the flight to St. Louis. This quote of hers is really resonating with me today.)

I was approved for SDR surgery 52 days ago. But, who’s counting? Today I got the call. My surgery date is July 14th. I hung up the phone and had a minor freak out. It all suddenly felt so real. This is happening! I am now in a blissful fog. I can’t believe it! I can’t wait!
