Beautifully Different

{Picture the Holidays - Day 8: Reflecting on the Season}
Prompt: Capture a Reflection today
Sugar cookies and icing from scratch...yum! And so fun and festive to decorate Christmas cookies. Does it look like real trees on a real lake? Ha :)

{Reverb 10 - Day 8: Beautifully Different}
Prompt: Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up.

I would have to say what makes me unique is my health history and the strength I have gained as a result. I am able to look at life through the lens of a second chance. Being diagnosed with Leukemia and having my teenage years ripped out from under my feet was so unexpected and seemingly impossible, but here I am today, 10 years later. I cannot imagine my life without that experience...lacking certain relationships, milestone events and the strength I carry with me day to day. I hope to use my story as a pathway for encouragement for current cancer patients, showing them that they too are beautifully different as a result of their battle. Everyone is beautiful in their own way, but this I feel is what makes me unique.
