These crosses are very special to me, they represent my journey and have been given to me by my family, friends and church. I look up at them when I am laying in bed and depressed and they remind me of all the people in my life and in my journey. Faith is a big thing in my life, it is what I have to hold onto. I don’t like all the health issues that just keep snow balling but I think back if I didn’t have all these health problems, I wouldn’t have all these crosses which represent the people in my life if I didn’t have this illness. Each cross has its story of who I got it from and what they say when they give it to me. Because if I don’t keep my faith, I don’t have anything. If I don’t have anything to believe in and a higher power it is scary to think that if this is the only life it is scary and it is comforting to think that the family, friends, therapists, psychiatrist, doctors, people in my life that have showed me how to be thankful for the things in my life. It helps me realize that there are other people worse off. I try to be a friend and a mentor to those who are going through problems in their lives. It doesn’t matter if you are catholic, or Lutheran but just some kind of higher power that will help you through your life, your journey.
