I stumbled across a new blog hero this week. Gitzen Girl is suffering from a chronic and progressive disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis. It’s hard for me to imagine the effort it takes her just to get out of bed in the morning, and yet–and yet–joy shines so clearly through almost every post she writes that it fairly spills out of the screen. This blog post really affected me this week. I just had to share it. I’m still digesting it myself.
