“Maybe life isn’t about avoiding bruises. Maybe it’s about collecting scars to prove we showed up for it.” -Hannah Brencher

Leah loved this quote from the moment she read it. She has a scar on her cheek from when she was an excited 5 year-old, running up the stairs in fleece socks to do a sit-up contest with our dad. Now she has a prominent scar running along her spine, the result of multiple surgeries that saved her life. She also has scars running along the upper part of her right leg where it was amputated and a long scar all the way down her left leg from transplanting a vein.

Scars tell a story. Some of them can be seen, some are invisible. They all count. And they’re all beautiful because they signal the fact that you survived, that you showed up for life.

May this print be a reminder that pain isn’t the end of the story. That extraordinary beauty can spring out of wounded hearts and bodies. That we were built to bloom.

    Needed Reminder

    This is such a wonderful reminder. I have it hanging near my desk, so when times are tough I can look at this and remember it’s worth it. Show up for the people you love. Show up for yourself. Not when it’s convenient but when it matters most.

    Beautiful piece of art

    I bought this as a post heart-transplant gift to myself. I can't wait to frame it to hang it in my bedroom as a reminder to myself that I survived and the scars are just part of the journey of life. The illustration is a beautiful piece of art.
