All these crazy emotions!

I have been filled with emotion for days. I attended a sweet and spiritual funeral and realized again that what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. Tomorrow I have surgery to have the tumors removed on my arms and when you under go any thing like that life becomes really mortal. I also have experienced so much emotion with Sarah's spiritual experiences about adopting a baby. I can remember so well the feelings I had about adopting. For me, my Sister had a baby when I was sixteen. I loved this baby so much, but I was sixteen. After I got married he came to live with us and I knew and felt as though I had always known that he would be mine. When you have children and choose to adopt another, you go in with your eyes completely open. I already knew what it would cost, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. But, he was mine and I couldn't deny that! Now Sarah knows these feelings and I am so happy for her. She knew she had another baby, she just didn't know how it would come. But the Lord does love us and it strengthens our testimonies and our resolve. I too am thankful for families this day!
