It felt good to be able to get dressed up and ready to go out, Damion was taking me out. It was the first time he and I had been out since before the accident. I felt bad because I had been home for weeks by now, but I had been to busy feeling sorry for myself, getting it in my head that Damion couldn't possibly love me, because of the accident. The fact was for a time I was feeling sorry for myself. I was finally getting past the self pity.
"I'm glad to see you happy, getting out again." Katie said, she was no longer spending all her time taking care of me, but she had come over to help me fix my hair. Something I had never been good at. I usually wore my hair short, and now it was growing.
I wondered how I would get into those Beauty shop chairs now, but I could not focus on that. I was going on a date, Damion was going to propose to me again, and this time I was going to say yes.
"Do you know where Damion is taking you?"
"No, but I know I am ready to stop sitting around the house feeling sorry for myself. I realized that was not going to get me out of this chair, the fact is nothing short of a miracle will, but I am learning to accept that. I understand now that Damion does not see me any differently either. This chair has not changed who I am."
"Praise the Lord, you are finally seeing what I have been praying you would see." Katie practically screamed. I could not help but laugh.
"What would you do without me?" Katie asked laughing! You have been calling me to fix your hair since we were kids!
"I guess I have always been more intersted in skiing that the latest fashions or hairstyles."
"I am sure you always will be."
"Well now I have Damion to think about too, and of course my faith, I would not be here without Jesus, I feel like I woke up from a long sleep, to come to realize that I was just suffering from misplaced faith."
"I am glad you are waking up, Damion loves you, and you will always be like a sister to me, none of that changed."
"I know that now." I said. "I just had to let myself get past the pity."
"Well it looks to me like you are moving past that point."
I was moving past the point but I knew there would be times, I had questions. I wondered.
Before long I found myself being lifted into the cab of Damion's pick up. I had loved that truck before the accident, but at this point I wasnt to fond of anything that made me feel any dependence. I knew I was going to have to face the fact that things had changed, and their might be times I needed help, but there really was no shame in that.
I didn't mind being in Damion's arms either, he was going to be my husband, and there would be many times I found myself in his arms.
Lord thank you for giving me a second chance with Damion. I believe he is the man you have for me.
