Welcome to the Breast Cancer Blog Hop(e). This hop(e) was started by Michelle over at Inside My Own Private Idaho. You can go there to start the hop(e) and see the list of all the participants, if you haven’t already.
My family has been greatly affected by breast cancer. I lost my beloved grandmother almost ten years ago. Two weeks after she passed away my mom was diagnosed with the same disease. She is now a two time survivor. That is why I put the sentiment “celebrate” on this card. I feel we should celebrate our survivors and honor and celebrate the lives of those that we have lost.
I believe that butterflies symbolize beauty, hope and freedom. I hope this card not only inspires you to celebrate this precious life we have every day but to also celebrate the lives of those that are no longer here with us. Te quiero mucho, mi Bila.
