Permanent Marks

Tattoos are forever. 

These diseases are forever.

My truth is forever. 

My struggle is forever.

My strength is forever.

My fight is forever.

My hope is forever.

My persistence is forever.

My heart is forever. 

Permanent Marks. Remind me what’s true. Remind me of the focus. Remind me of the goal. Remind me to keep going- to stay strong.

Invisible illnesses, visible courage.

I am a warrior. 

Peony – long ago was used as pain relief in medicine. 

Dahlia – inner strength & courage

Sunflower – Face the sun and the shadows will fall behind you.
