Celebration of Life

Celebration of the day you took your first breath - Celebration of life

I see far too many people dread these things called Birthdays but in my experience they should be treasured and not cursed because the next one is not promised!!  

The American Cancer Society has estimated that in 2014 One Million Six Hundred Sixty-Five Thousand Five Hundred Forty (1,665,540) people in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer, it has also been estimated that Five Hundred Eighty-Five Thousand Seven Hundred Twenty (585,720) people will die from cancer in 2014. 

Those are scary numbers!! Chances are you and I are going to know at least one person who passes away or gets diagnosed this year - so celebrate life each day and especially the birthdays!! 


June 4th is my mom's birthday - she has officially lived to be older than her mother ever was. My grandma passed away from breast cancer at the age of 58, five months before I was born. 

I think this is one of the many reasons birthdays have been a big deal in our family. We give cards, we enjoy each others company and give thanks for another glorious year!

My advice to you is to celebrate those people in your life that mean the very most to you. Even if it is just a card, the thought truly counts - create and customize a card for them from Treat Greeting Cards or contact Erika Joy Design for a beautiful handmade card!


Happy Birthday to my beautiful Momma - I love you!!
