It occurred to me the other day to be more positive and less cynical about my surgical date set back. After all, "happiness is a choice" is my motto. Later that same day I realized one more plus to this delay. I now have more time to find myself one last kiss. I know, that probably makes no sense to most people. Allow me to explain. All of my research leads me to believe I will most likely have some permanent nerve damage to my mouth or chin. Considering what will happen if I don't have the surgery, its a chance I'm willing to take. The one thing that bothers me, is that I may never have another honest to goodness kiss without the distraction of numbness or tingling. This may sound lame (or gross depending on who's reading) to you, but kissing has been a favorite past time of mine for years :) So, I told myself a while back that I would accomplish a number of things before my date with a bone saw. On my to-do list are: update Mara's baby book, organize the house, create a will, lose weight, and land myself one last kiss. So, here's to positivity and finding the bright side of life. Wish me luck! Smiles
