" Sally I'm so proud of you. I don't know if I could be strong if it were me who had been in your situation. "
" It's not my strength Mom, it's the Lord's that gets me through. "
Sally and her Mother talked as they drove to Southern Califonia. She was grateful she had asked her Mother to go a long, and grateful that as of yet there had been no arguments about Sally over doing it. Maybe her Mom was finally accepting the fact that what Sally was doing she was doing for God, and not even the accident that paralyzed her was going to stop her from doing that.
" Sally when I got that call, saying you had been in an accident, I thought I had lost you forever, which made me want to hold you tighter when I saw you were going to make it. I'm sorry if it felt like I was smothering you. "
" It did feel like you were smothering me Mom, but I know you were doing it out of love. If I had been in your place I may have acted the same way, but Mom I was going to serve God, whether I live my life sitting down or walking. "
The car grew quiet Sally and her Mother, each lost in their thoughts. Her mother thinking of how blessed she was to still have her daughter, and Sally thanking God, that although she was no longer able to walk, she was able to sing. She had known for awhile now music was her ministry.
" Sally I don't know many who would handle being told they would never walk again, as well as you did and have. "
" Mom at first I was an absolute mess, and even now I often find myself asking God why. But then I realise even if I never walk again, while I am on this earth, I will when I am in Heaven. "
" You make me proud sweetie, the fact that you are willing to put Christ at the center of your life, when so many others refuse to even acknowlege him as Saviour. "
" Mother you led me by example and for that I am grateful. "
Sally's Mother smiled at her daughter, sitting in the passenger seat, and again told her how proud she was of her. Having Sally as a daughter was a blessing to her, and when she thought she had lost her, her life had been turned upside down in a matter of seconds. She couldn't stop thanking God for her daughter still being there with her as she looked over.
" Sing your heart out. " Sally's Mother said as they pulled up to the studio.
" I will Mom, for the Grace of God I will. "
