Passion

Here's a darling new image that will be released by Sandra Caldwell today. It's called 1989 Love Hippo.  How sweet is this image?  It will get added to her Babycakes DND store on Etsy later today, so keep your eyes out for this stamp and many more!
Hoping you are all having a great start to 2018!  I can't believe it's only 2 weeks to the celebration!  I am so excited to be hitting 8 years of seizure free life.  Or just having 8 years of life in general.  Did you know that more people die from Epilepsy than from Breast Cancer?   Now, I don't at all take either one any less serious, as my own grandmother died from Breast Cancer, not only that but I myself had a horrible breast cancer scare when I was only 28 years old!  But I say it because I don't think people realize HOW MANY people die due to their epilepsy.  I go to a very small church, we have maybe 140 members, 70 of which come everyweek.  Three of our regular members have lost a family member due to epilepsy.

Hi Holley, I didn't realise that Epilepsy was a killer illness. That really shocked me. However, on a brighter note, your card is lovely, that hippo is so cute and I love those flowers - what are the centres made of??

Gosh Holley, I had no idea so many people died from epilepsy. Scary because as you know both my sons and I have epilepsy. Glad I didn't know about this sooner. I remember John Travoltas son passed away from it.
