March 5th-Heart Day.

March 5th has always been a special day for me. Exactly TEN years ago I had my open-heart surgery. What a blessing it was to have my heart fixed so that I could live a full, healthy and happy life, so that I could live to marry the man of my dreams and be able to have children someday. I love my "zipper" that is a constant reminder of the blessing it is to be alive and healthy. It really is miraculous what modern medicine can do. 

Tomorrow (Same day as mine), My precious, princess niece Bela will be having open heart surgery and will be spending a couple weeks in the hospital. She's been a miracle baby since the day she was born. She's the bravest and strongest little girl I know. She is such a light and joy to everyone around her and she has the sweetest, most perfect spirit. I know Heavenly Father sure has big plans for this little one.

You can read her miracle journey on her blog:
I love her with all my heart, and I know everything will go well, she is in good hands and has lots of prayers. 

Life is such a sweet blessing.
