We all have dreams when we are young, about what we want to do in life. I was orphaned young and my dream was to grow up, get married and have my own family. I wanted that more than anything, but that dream was almost cut short by a bad car accident, when I was 23. I was hit by a 19 yr old drunk driver and as a result, have had multiple surgeries over the last 40 yrs - the last one damaging my femoral nerve, paralyzing my leg for over a year.
My dreams did come true, I married the guy across the street and I've been blessed every day since. I have two fantastic adult children along with a caring son-in-law and two delightful grandchildren. The path has not been an easy one, but definitely one I've appreciated through the many relationships I've made. I am blessed.
