Picking Up The Pieces(Kimberly's Story Part One)

I am paying the cost for someone elses mistake.

 

 

 

Aug.17.2011

Funny how life has a way of throwing you curve balls.

And you are suddenly forced to realize your not invincible.

Being a teenager, doesn't lessen your ability to get hurt or worse.

I know it hasn't mine, if I had I wouldn't be sitting here writing this.

In a wheelchair.

This wasn't the life I expected for myself.

But this summer everything changed.

Two months ago mid June I was in an accident, and now I am picking up the pieces of my life.

I should be celebrating life, and I am but I am celebrating in a different way.

And just today I was released.  I am home now, but I am both excited and nervous about what lies ahead.

And I certainly don't like the fact I still need so much help.

I am grateful for my family and so glad to be home but I want to be completely independent.

There are somethings a teenage girl should not need help with, but life is different for me now, and I am forced to live with it.

I am paying the cost for someone elses mistake.

I am trying not to be bitter, but I am hurting.

Deep inside in ways I did not know possible.

I can't let that hurt turn into hatred though.

I am going to end this now, but this isn't the last you heard from me.

Kimberly~

Short, precise sentences make for a pleasant, readable story. Good that Kimberly is going to embrace life, even from a wheelchair (as she should); love her attitude! Well done! (Only mistake is in the first sentence: it should be "Funny of how life has a way of throwing you curve balls", not "curve bars"! LOL )

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :D
