Four year anniversary

Posted on August 22, 2010 at 7:01 PM

Today marks the four year anniversary of the start of my new life. Through these past few years, I have learned so much more about who I am as a person, as well as the strengths in me that I never knew I had. It’s unfortunate that it took a tragedy of this proportion to teach me these life lessons.

 

Even though I’m “behind” in some areas, in many ways I feel that I’m ahead. For example, I’ve learned many strengths that I possess, such as never giving up. When I set a goal for myself, I’ll do whatever it takes to achieve it. I have also learned that the most important aspirations we strive to reach take a lot of time. But life isn’t about who reaches their dreams the fastest, it’s about making the most of those dreams and of everything else we have.

 

It's true, the healing process is taking longer than I would ideally like, but everyone continues to see improvement in my recovery . . . including me.

 

I believe that God is the reason for my continued healing. So I ask all of you to please keep praying because trust me, prayers work.

 

And four years later, I STILL believe in miracles!

July 19, 2010 was my son's year anniversary of his accident and injury. His progress has been very slow but he has never given up. This past month he has started to move his legs some on command, I know we have a long way to go but I believe he wil make it. I have watched some of your videos and feel as though I know you a little. I see the same determination in you that I see in my son. I think you are amazing and I always send some prayers your way.

Each year on my anniversay, I wake up and KNOW what day it is. Each year, I look at it as another year of accomplishment. As your family was told, mine was also told I would not make it thru the night. God is with us. Yes, God grants MIRACLES!

GOD BLESS YOU!
