So glad that Arlene made it safely through surgery. My thoughts always come in the form of a poem. Here is a new poem that I just wrote for Arlene:

Never far from my mind or heart, a poem for Arlene Wicks Allen by Tracy Diane Miller
The minutes of this day
Moved quickly from morning to night
But you were never far from my mind or heart
As my poetic prayer came into sight
I had asked God to take care of you
When you faced a surgeon’s hand
For faith must be my touchstone
To deal with life’s uncertainties I understand
As you face recovery
There are more prayers that must be said
For pain to disappear
In the days you face ahead
