This week has been difficult for me. Last Thursday, October 22nd was my 5 year anniversary of my injury. I tend to get a little depressed this time of year even if I think I wont. I suppose its my subconscious mind knowing all I went through. The memory of a trauma that will always live within me. But the good news is that its only a memory, not a state of being. These past 5 years I have endured a lot but also have grown a lot. Its amazing how a struggle teaches you so much about yourself, life, patience, perseverance, and most of all God's love. I'm growing in ways unimaginable & am excited to see how much I will do in my life because of this.
Five years ago I was so weak, unable to breathe on my own, talk, move, or feel & now I am crawling, sitting up on my own, feeling again, and recently standing (with assistance) and lifting my hip high enough to clear my foot off the ground. So I remain motivated & persistent. The fight continues, because God is great & I have a lot to be thankful for!!!
