if you happened to miss it, last friday was a blog hop for write.click.scrapbook as well as the new gallery reveal for june. the theme for the month was team pairings, and i was lucky enough to get alexandra as my pairing. see friday's post for her inspiration piece, here's what i did with it:
every year, on may 12th, i celebrate my life-iversary, i was diagnosed with heart failure 12 years ago and the prognosis wasn't too good. but so far, things have proved otherwise. the journaling on this is very heartfelt (that's so funny to say, you wouldn't believe how many terms we use on a regular basis reference the heart. having heart failure puts a whole new spin on saying things like bless your heart...), i still can't make it through reading it without crying. i really have been blessed these 12 years, but i'd really like to keep going a bit longer.
