Valentines is coming and I’d like to share this very personal illustration with you. Some of you may know that in 2011 my husband had heart surgery, his heart was 97% blocked. It was a shock for us because he was so young and healthy, only 46. He played soccer most of his life and takes care of himself. Almost 3 years later, he is doing great. I am so thankful for the doctors that took care of him. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about what happened and how blessed we are that he is here. This only made us appreciate each other more and not to get upset about small things. I created this art just after he had surgery but never posted it because it was too painful to share at the time. But now I feel it is a happy piece to share and encourage others going thru anything similar. We have learned to focus on the positive things that come from difficult situations, and try to take life day by day. Hug your loved ones a little tighter today!
