Christian prayed that God would bless me with strength, courage, and comfort.  
He prayed that my heart would find peace, and feel my worth.
"I love you so much, and you are beautiful to me.
You'll always be beautiful to me, no matter what, OK?"
He briefly described my scars as the same bright pink and purple swirls 
I'd seen on my legs, with some dried blood and scabs.
"But all of that will go away.  It's going to get much better.  
And, Stephanie, your eyes are as beautiful as they always have been.
I smiled up at my husband, so thankful for his strength."
