Today I received some post from Cards for Warriors. It was a lovely surprise and made my day.
Cards for warriors are team of dedicated volunteers all with chronic illnesses who send out handmade cards to encourage and brighten the day of those living with a chronic illness.
In my card it read: "Naomi, I hope this card fits you on a good day! Always remember that you are so much more than what happened to you! No diagnosed can take away all you have accomplished! I hope you never stop dreaming and doing what you love because I know you will do amazing things! You are a warrior and we are cheering you on!"
The second card read: "Hey there!! I hope this card finds you well! I am here to remind you that you rock! You are strong and brave - I am in awe of you! Keep your fighting spirit!"
Both card's messages where very personal and meant a lot to me. It reminded me that I am more than my illnesses and that within my limitations my anything is possible.
