The love of family

family in frame

We all have moments in our lives where it seems like everything is being turned upside down and then some. We ask ourselves why? Why is this happening to me or to someone I love? The answer is simple really. Everything happens for a reason whether we see it at the time or not.

I was asking myself this a few months ago. To be exact it was December 13, 2013 when I found out my dad had a brain tumor. My whole body just went numb. It was by far one of the worst things I’ve had ever had to face in my life.

After a very intense and extremely scary surgery on February 24, 2014 he was 99% tumor free. It was benign, thank goodness and its been a struggle and he still has some issues but they’re minor compared to what it could have been.

Going through an experience like this gives you a different perspective on life and although I wouldn’t want to watch him go through that again, I am very thankful that it has brought me much closer to my family and that’s something I wouldn’t want to give up. Hence, everything happens for a reason.

This brings me to my printables section. After everything happened with my dad I wanted to make something for all of us so I designed this printable that says ‘The love of a family is life’s greatest blessing.’ Simple yet right to the point. It’s perfect for any loved one no matter the circumstance.
