6 Years

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Cannot believe this past Monday (June 8th) marked my sixth anniversary with my sweet little heart.
For those who aren't familiar with my story you can read all about it here...

While this is always an emotional time of year for me, this year felt even more so. To know that I am only four years away from the BIG TEN is pretty crazy! Each year, this sweet celebration gives me the opportunity to evaluate the past year, concentrate on the accomplishments and truly take a moment to be thankful for how fortunate I was to receive a perfect match and make it another year without any major medical emergencies. The feelings I felt on that day (or year, rather) will always be with me and the experience as a whole has ultimately shaped the person I am today. 

Reaching the Big Five rejection free was such a big deal and cannot believe a year has passed since that milestone. It's hard not to get emotional and literally beam with love around everyone, especially my sisters. To say they are the greatest support system is an understatement. To every single individual who as made a difference in my life during this amazing journey, I send you my biggest thanks and radiate my love to you this week. 

It's quite unfortunate how the important topic of organ donation is still not widely discussed. It is a challenging and heartbreaking experience to be placed on this list. The wait for a perfect organ match to swing by can take years for many and sadly, most pass waiting for one. As of 9:40 this morning, there are 122,994 candidates waiting on the list. To speak in numbers, an average of 21 individuals pass daily, a figure that's seriously too big to accept. 

While this is a personal decision, I would love for you to look more into this as its SUCH a big deal but a wonderful contribution should you decide to become a donor. Remember, you don't need organs in heaven :) 

Style note: This is the outfit I wore to my Anniversary dinner with one of my dearest friends.
