No Matter The Order
Scares And Miracles
Can Be Part Of Any Season. . .
As I approach my four-year anniversary (is that the proper way to identify it?) of my stroke and heart attack, there are definitely moments where I wonder about the relevance of miracles as well as scares.
Even the actual date is somewhat fuzzy as I continue to piece together the story.
It’s definitely true that there are many elements that make each of us who we are in this moment. Rather than repeat myself (a practice which I am all too familiar) I will skip details of that time since I have previously shared them. That said, situations and circumstances don't necessarily define us.
Learning is definitely ongoing. Each of us not only sees things in a different way but is on a course unlike any other as we live and learn on a daily basis. That applies to those impacted by a traumatic brain injury and everyone else too.
Sure, there are things I can't do but amazingly many things that I can do. And some of those things I think arrive with a better awareness than before.
Maybe that’s how this post has come together after quite a few revisions. Andrea Bedard and Carol Williams are co-hosting 'Tis The Season For Miracles And Scares one of two ActiveRain challenges this month. This is my sole entry for that event.
Whether it happens on 34th Street in New York City or some place that may be more familiar to you, let me tell you miracles and scares both exist. And sometimes simultaneously.
As for the photo in this post, I snapped (quite the miracle in itself) it some years ago in the Old Pasadena area.
