Shannon, my Sis-in-Law decided to get a new tattoo. I asked her if it was alright to share a pic. I'm sure you all will really like the design.
She is a very passionate person and in a literal sense, wears her heart on her sleeve (or collarbone in this case). I was very touched by the design she chose. It offers encouragement and hope.
Shannon has been such a big supporter of all of my adventures. She, in fact, started this blog for me. Her compassion and understanding has changed our relationship. Shannon's son, Ashton, is a bright and amazing little man with many challenges. Between Shannon's perseverance and Ashton's smiling face they have overcome more challenges than any family should have to endure. I admire their strength. In the past, it was difficult for me to relate to her difficulties. With my heart disease I have been able to connect in a new way. My illness certainly has brought some great things and I'm thankful for that.
I absolutely love the tattoo and I'm so glad that she has chosen to share her passion with the world.
