Ever since I got a mechanical heart valve on September 21, 2016, I can hear and feel the beat of my heart. That’s why I appreciated every beat of this heart-felt message:
I know, with every beat of my heart, that sharing your thoughts and feelings with a group can be good for your heart and soul. So, yesterday, I posted this on the Facebook page of the Zipper Sisters (a private group for women born with heart conditions):
To my sisters with a mechanical heart valve: Can you hear and/or feel the valve (like I do)? What’s that like for you?
All the different hearts that answered my questions helped my heart and my soul feel heard, connected, supported, and quieter.
As my heart was beating yesterday, I noticed and captured every image in today’s post.
Every beat of my heart loves this performance by Gladys Knight & the Pips:
Every beat of my heart feels gratitude for all who helped me create this post and — of course! — for you.
