Angels, Airbags and Gratitude
A year ago I crashed. Literally. Going 65 mph on the freeway.
I left the office only 15 minutes before, on my way to meet a friend for dinner. I smashed into the car in front of me, and then, spinning around, with airbags deployed, crashed into the cement median.
It was loud. It was frightening. And it was downright painful. A broken clavicle, dislocated ribs, the Jaws of Life, an ambulance ride, surgery, and ouch, lots of wacky bumps and bruises.
But I was alive. I am alive. Walking, talking, breathing, singing, dancing – alive. And I am so very grateful.
I write this post, not to be macabre or dwell on the past, but rather to acknowledge and celebrate the many blessings in my life over the past year.
I am grateful for my life, for where I am today, and for the amazing healing abilities of my body and spirit. I am thankful for family and friends, colleagues, and Care2 members, who were, and continue to be, so wonderfully supportive. I am grateful for all of the angels in my life.
Life is fragile. And unpredictable. And sometimes even scary. But life is also marvelous, miraculous and magical. And for all of this, I am incredibly grateful.
