Tuesday, September 10: Describe a distinct moment when your life took a turn.
This would have been a perfect post for Thursday.
Thursday will be the 14th anniversary of the car wreck that paralyzed me.
You can read about that here.
This time 14 years ago, I was walking and running and dancing and going UP AND DOWN stairs.
Little did I know in two short days I would be forever changed.
Now I needed one and I knew it before the doctors even told me.

Frankly, I’m not sure I care to talk about it much this year.
It’s over. It’s done.
Yet, I always know when it’s that time.
Even if I forget, something ALWAYS reminds me the closer I get to the day and time.
The last two years I keep promising to share a journal I briefly kept from that time, but there’s always an excuse or a reason not to.
Maybe next year.
