Reena's Gift Part Three

I knew that I had to forgive in order to heal, both physically and emotionally, that is a big realization to come past you when you are only fourteen.

 

Six years ago my life was forever changed.  I was in an accident, that renderred me a parpalagic and I had to choices I could either look at the negative or I could look at the postive, for awhile I was angry and bitter.  Some fool got behind the wheel drunk and I paid the price, but then I realized if I did not forgive this young kid, I was really no better off than he was.  I was just going to be letting myself become victimized twice, once by getting hit, and the second time by allowing myself to become bitter and angry.  After a short time I knew that I could not sit around feeling sorry for myself and being bitter and angry.

I knew that I had to forgive in order to heal, both physically and emotionally, that is a big realization to come past you when you are only fourteen.

I am twenty now, some say I am much older than my years.  I have always been told that, even before I faced the life changing accident.  I was told that.  Perhaps being an only child made me grow up faster than my years, perhaps it was simply because I had an old soul as some said.

I know one thing though, my faith has seen me through so much including this life changing accident, being told I would never walk again and living in this chair for the past six years, but I am alive and I am active, this chair does not slow me down, instead it is the tool that allows me to do the things I want to do.

I am so grateful for that.

I am grateful for my faith as well.  I don't know what I would do without Jesus.

God Bless

Reena!
