WHY AM I LUCKY?
Have you every thought about how lucky you are? You are alive! I often refer to my life with this profound statement, "Everything’s the Same, Everything’s Different." It is so true. In fact, I wrote a book with this title. A friend of mine named Sherri is a junior high school teacher and she has her students, "Write a Book." She chose me as her subject this year.
Let me explain, if you had an injury, accident or stroke, you would still be the same person, yet there would be very different ways you can do things. I know this kind of life is difficult. But don’t give in. Live!!!
I miss the me
I used to be
Standing on my own
But now wheels go ‘round
And Freedom Found
