7 For 7: Why I'm Happy

7 Reasons I am Happy to be a Mom to a Child with CHD.

No parent is happy to receive a diagnosis of CHD, but CHD is not a death sentence. For today's post, Karen Ward, mom to a beautiful little girl who has HLHS (half a heart) shares 7 reasons she is happy.
  1. I don't sweat the small stuff any more (or as much)
  2. I snuggle a little longer at night when I tuck my kids in
  3. I have met some WONDERFUL people
  4. I have a stronger faith and better relationship with God
  5. I am more thankful for what I have and have found that I want less
  6. I have found strength that I never knew I had
  7. I appreciate life so much more
Thanks for sharing your 7, Karen!
