scars

I have scars.....a lot of scars....but they tell a story. I have always said scars add character.
Well my sweet sister-in-law who I am blessed to call one of my best friends sent me a card with this BEAUTIFUL excerpt from the book Little Bee. Thank you Stacy for this reminder.....I love you and am so thankful you are such a huge part of my world.
Now remember all of you....your scars tell your story, they add strength - they are a part of you....Someone once told me after my accident when I was MUCH MORE sensitive about my scars that it was like I had my own design and pattern to my skin...I have never forgotten that. Hope this helps some of you......xo
