“They are the ones who are going to have to live a life full of antiquated thoughts, while we prove them wrong at every turn.”

Chapter Ten:

“I am so glad to see you smiling, enjoying life again.” Emily said, smiling.

“I’m glad to be letting myself feel human again, the Lord used you to show me that I can overcome.”

“Healing bodies I believe is my calling, and I could not let the accident that led to the amputations change that. I struggled at first, and truth be told I still have my moments of questions, moments when I feel less than whole, but they are few and far between now.”

“You’re good at what you do.”

“Thanks, but for awhile I questioned whether I could do it, I questioned a lot of things like whether I would ever learn to walk with these prosthetic legs, but finally I just told myself to snap out of it, and give it to God.” Emily explained.

“I couldn’t even tell you were walking with prosthetic legs, not until you told me.”

“I guess that’s because I had so much practice on them, but even today I find myself getting frustrated, sometimes waking up grieving for my legs, but like I said I try not to let it define me.”

“I am getting to that point, it’s just still so fresh for me.”

“It always will be Heather, but by the Grace of God you will move on.”

“I know, but sometimes I wake up expecting things to be normal, and then I am disappointed to realize how much they have changed.”

“As they say Heather change is inevitable, and what exactly defines normal? It is vastly different for many people.”

“I didn’t really think of in that terms.”

“Truthfully I didn’t at first either.”

I was thankful that the Lord had sent Emily to share such a personal part of herself and her struggle with me. I was going to get through this with the help of Emily, she was much more than a doctor she was now a friend, and I had the support of Eric my loving fiancé and my best friend Becka, but more importantly I had the Lord I could lean on, and that was truly what was going to get me through.

“Heather you are going to get through this and you are going to struggle that you can still live an active and full life, as long as you take care of yourself, and don’t get to overwhelmed by despair.”

“I know that now.” I said. “I was just trying to be strong for so long, that I finally melt down, I thought my life was over.”

‘You’re young still and soon to be married, you have a lot of life left in you, the Lord kept you here for a reason.”

“I know.”

Lord I am going to get through this, I am going to be married, and I am going to have a successful life, I really believe that Lord. I am surrounded by people who love me, and I am more grateful for that.. I love you Jesus, and I praise you for letting me see that I am going to make it through this, that the accident didn’t take my life, so I shouldn’t let it take my spirit.“Thank you Emily.”


“For what?”

“For helping me to see that my life isn’t over, for showing me that our differences don’t define us.”

“It’s a lesson we all need to learn sometime, whether or not we’ve been through this.”

“Yeah we do, unfortunately some refuse to learn that lesson.”

“They are the ones who are going to have to live a life full of antiquated thoughts, while we prove them wrong at every turn.”

“I am sure you’ve been surprising people for years. Especially when they get this idea that you should be sitting around the house feeling sorry for yourself, and they see you a doctor.”

“I am used to having to prove others wrong, when I was in Med schools I had to prove myself to professors who didn’t think I was going to be able to make it as a doctor, now a decade later, I am still surprising some of them.”

“That’s good.”

“I believe you will be doing the same.”

“I hope so.”

“Have a little faith in yourself, and have a little faith in the Lord, he will see you through this.”

“I know.”

I was grateful for Emily encouragement, and her company. It got a little lonely during the day when Becka and Eric were at work, I knew what they were doing was important though. The innocence thief needed to be caught, and if he wasn’t caught soon we were only going to see more bodies, and he might go after Becka, Eric or someone else in the agency. He had already shot me, no telling what he would do to someone else and we all knew he was capable of murder.

“Thank you Emily, for everything, you’ve helped me through this in more ways than you realized. Now I needed to ask if you were going to come to my wedding.”

“I got the day off so yeah I would love too.”

“That’s great, Eric and I are going to be glad that you are coming. It’s hard to believe it’s only a couple of weeks until I am a married woman.”

“You got a good man.”

“Yes I do I know I am blessed to have Eric in my life, I don’t know how I would have got through all of this without him, without any of you. You guys have all been so great to me, I appreciate it more than you know.”

“I am glad we could help.”
