452. Being able to be around my 1 1/2 yr old and 5 year old grandsons a week after a bilat. They bring such joy and I don't have to worry about them bothering the drains. I think th youngest figured something was different because his first reaction was to come give me a big, gentle hug and he hasn't asked to be picked up. Once I explained to the older that I can't pick him up yet he gives me really big smiles for the kisses we share.
453. Having my scriptures to read every day. I took a suggestion and put them on cards. Read them before surgery, after in the hospital and now during recovery. I see something new in them every day.
