All it takes is for a simple accident to view life in a new perspective! Just 10 days ago, unbeknownst to either of us, Ryan’s water bottle had leaked in the hallway. I slipped during the middle of the night, which resulted in a fractured femur.
I am so fortunate to have many caring people in my life:
- My family who immediately “jumped in” to help with this challenge
- Friends who were but a phone call away to meet me at the hospital, and now regularly visit and assist with anything I may need
- The BNI Family – administration, staff, students, families – who immediately sent their prayers and well wishes. We truly are a family!
I have also learned a lot from this experience; I now appreciate the ability to move to a much greater degree than I ever thought possible. You truly don’t know what you have until it’s gone! I am looking forward to once again being able to get up to take a walk, go for a run, or simply sit outside to enjoy the beautiful weather.
Certainly, I would never want anyone to ever experience an injury as I did, though it was an “eye opener.” I look at each day now with a new sense of life and beginning.
Thank you to everyone – I am so grateful for all of your support!
