On February 15th I celebrated six years of living.
When I was diagnosed with diabetes, the ink was was drying on the last page of my personal book of life. I was going into a coma.
By the time I got to the ER, my vision was blurred, speech slurred, and I wasn’t able to walk. My body was shutting down. Then to lose my home in a tornado only 61 days later, my goodness. I can imagine that that’s what it feels like to be struck by lightening twice in two months. What luck? What odds? It’s any wonder that I am sane today.
But I am.
And because I am, it’s important for me to take this moment to reflect on what an awesome “rebirth” experience this has been for me.
