I shared about the story of my eyes a few months ago (2 months ago, to be exact). At the time, I was expecting to have a 4th eye surgery in a few weeks. However, with my move to Columbus and a lot of transition, that surgery date ended up getting pushed back to Monday… like in 3 days Monday. Here’s a little background (or you can just check out this blog here)!
I grew up wearing glasses and have had double vision for as long as I can remember. I’ve had three corrective surgeries, which have all only been somewhat successful. It’s been a huge area of my life that I’ve had to dedicate to the Lord, and one that so many friends and family have so fervently prayed for. My story is one of redemption. It’s full of second chances and grace. It’s a miracle that the Lord has chosen to use me in such a unique way after He knows how much of a struggle its been for me and my family to correct my vision. Nine years ago as I went into my first surgery, who knew that I would become a photographer!? It’s crazy how the one thing that could have been taken away from me is now the one thing that provides so much joy.
To make a long story short (because let’s be honest, words are hard and I am really struggling on what I want to say for this post), I am about to under go my fourth surgery on Monday. That means that I won’t be taking too many pictures for the next three weeks as I recover, but doesn’t mean that you still can’t contact me, book mini sessions (hint hint dates went live yesterday!) or read the blog because it will still be going full speed ahead! I just ask for grace during this time as I recover from what will hopefully be a smooth procedure. More importantly, I am asking for prayers to keep me safe + healthy and for a speedy recovery! If you know me, I don’t do anything half-heartedly, so as soon as my three weeks of recovery are up, I have a double header weekend to kick off the fall wedding season! Nothing like that “achiever” strength of mine, am I right? 😉
Thanks for coming along side me, supporting me, and praying for me. It means more to me than you will ever know.
