I feel HAPPY!

 "Life doesn't get to be put on pause until you can feel better                                                                        - time keeps ticking and dreams collect dust."

                                                                                        (wise words of a JA friend)

I often tell Savannah that life here on Earth will always have struggles and problems.  It is how we deal these struggles and problems that makes all the difference.  Savannah still struggles with daily pain, especially in her hands and feet, but she chooses to feel happy!  We are thankful for Sulfasalazine that Savannah takes orally twice a day, for it truly helps keep her head above water.

Three years ago, Savannah seemed to always be looking ahead to a time without pain.  She now realizes that this day may never come...and that is okay ...because Savannah has chosen HAPPINESS!


  1. I am so proud of Savannah and her very mature outlook! Happiness is so often a choice, and I am so glad that Savannah has chosen happiness and is not letting the pain defeat her spirit. Her journey looks different from the journey of most children her age, but she takes it in stride and is such an inspiration to those around her (including me!). She is such a beautiful girl, inside and out, and her happiness makes her even more beautiful!

  2. Thank you for your sweet comment. It has been a process for Savannah...she has had sadness, anger, self-pitty, a whole range of emotions along her journey. As she matures, she realizes she can choose to be positive or negative despite her obstacles. I am glad she is inspiring you...if she inspires even just one soul, it makes all the difference.
