A few years ago, my close friend JoAnne, had a concussion as a result of an accident with a horse. At the same time, my daughter was collecting references for college, so she asked me to find out if JoAnne would write one.
One day, while JoAnne was still recovering, I asked her how her focus was. I was puzzled when she told me her double vision was improving every day. We both started to laugh when I said, “I was wondering if you felt good enough to write the letter Rachael needs.”
Even though I have cerebral palsy I’ve been able to live on my own with the help of caregivers. Last week my caregiver who helps me get ready for the day, wasn’t scheduled to work. Getting myself presentable to go out that night was very time consuming. Fortunately, a friend came over and helped me finish getting ready. I felt agitated because I couldn’t do more. But she kept saying she was amazed because of how well I had done.
2017 is here and has plenty of possibilities. With it will come plenty of challenges and choices. They’ll either make me feel sorry for myself or lead me to my Heavenly Father so He can help me refocus on the things that are truly important.
