I must say I enjoyed our Independence day celebration the other day. My first year of celebrating Independence, after a SCI, but you know what I am independent, I am living my life, and I am still surprised at how many people want to treat me I am made of glass, which I am not.
I do not need a pity party. And I do not people to treat me like glass. It makes me LOL the way people act around me sometimes, because they are afraid of saying the wrong thing, and in tip toeing they end up putting their foot in their mouth LOL!
Fireworks were not allowed this year, which was a bit of a bummer but we had an awesome laser show, and had a good fourth regardless. I am just thankful that those that went before us, fought for that freedom, it makes me so mad when our Veterans do not get the respect they deserve.
Other than the fourth of July Celebration it has been a pretty laid back few days.
I am grateful that I am well, a spinal cord injury does not have to change my attitude on life. I am still living my dreams, the only thing I can't do is walk, and if God wills me to walk again it will happen again despite what doctors may or may not say.
I have an appointment in the morning and some errands to run, so I am signing off now.
