Books by Michelle R Kidwell Power In The Pen


I am grateful to be here and though I can no longer walk there is still plenty I can do, Now don't get me wrong I am not some kind of superwoman who never grieves over her loss, because I do grieve, but I am here and I am grateful for that. There is a difference between grieving and dwelling. Sometimes the difference can seem like a fine line but it is there.

 

 

Feeling sorry for yourself is not going to change anything.  It certainly is not going to give me the use of my legs back, so why should I feel sorry for myself?  I am here and I am able to tell my story, so instead of dwelling on the what if's I think I am better off to focus on the what is. 

I am grateful to be here and though I can no longer walk there is still plenty I can do,  Now don't get me wrong I am not some kind of superwoman who never grieves over her loss, because I do grieve, but I am here and I am grateful for that.  There is a difference between grieving and dwelling.  Sometimes the difference can seem like a fine line but it is there.

I do enjoy my life though, even from this chair I can enjoy a full life.  Nothing has to stop me or slow me down much.  Sure I have my off days, after all I am only human, but the good seem to out number the bad now and I am so grateful for that.

I am so grateful for alot of things.

I know that God let me live through the accident for a reason.  If he had wanted me to die, I would have died, but I am very much alive, and this chair does not change that.  The fact that I can no longer walk does not mean that I am less alive, it simply means I can not walk, but I know one day in Heaven I will.

To Be Continued....
