Small WondersI have had two major life altering injuries in my life.One was a serious fall while working and the other was a reaction to a medication. The fall was the most painful physically as well as emotionally since it took away my sense of immortality and made me see that life is very short and can be taken at any time.
I later realized that I needed to have this experience to appreciate life on a much deeper level. Since my teens I had been running ninety with my hair on fire and I lacked brakes of any kind. After the fall I was forced to slow down. Since that time I have seen wonderful things happen and begun to really appreciate the very small gifts life has to offer if you only take the time to look for them.
Today I try not to take life for granted, I try to live well, laugh as often as possible and look for the small wonders.
