A Tiny Request for You While I’m in the Hospital

Happy Tuesday friends! As you may already know from reading my recent posts, today is the day of my myomectomy surgery.

I decided not to publish a guest post today, since I will not be around to share it on the Tiny Buddha social media pages, moderate comments, or respond to emails. Instead, I decided to re-publish a post from 2010 that you may not have read, called 50 Things to Love About Life That Are Free. I hope you enjoy it!

I will be in the hospital until Thursday or Friday, though I will likely be working toward the end of the week. In the meantime, I would appreciate if you would do something for me:

Is there something that always makes you smile–an uplifting video, a funny picture, or a joke? I would love it if you would share it in the comments section so I can see them all after my operation.

If you don’t have anything specific to share, and you’ve never commented before, it would be great if you’d introduce yourself and share something that you’re passionate about. Meeting new people is my favorite part of running this site, and I’d love to connect with you!

If you’re reading this in your inbox, you may want to click here to comment on the site. Please note you might not receive an email on Wednesday or Thursday this week–and that I may be slow to respond to any emails that come to me.

Thank you again for all your love and support. It means the world to me, and it’s helped.

APRIL 12TH UPDATE: I came home from the hospital today and spent some time reading all your comments/visiting all your links. Thank you so much everyone! I’m touched that you all took the time to do this. When I’m feeling a little better, I will respond to some of these. Thank you again so much. 🙂
