Yesterday marked 4 years since that fateful day when for all intensive purposes my good life came to an end.
The odd thing about yesterday was I didn’t even realize that it was the 21st of June, 4 years since at the hands of surgery gone wrong I became #paralyzed, 4 years confined to this #wheelchair, 4 years left out of many activities, 4 years since I lived a life worth living.
Now did I not realize the day because of the #COVID19 #pandemic, maybe; did I not realize the day became I’ve become complacent or did I not realize the day because I simply just don’t care, not sure 🤷 but I do know what made me finally realize it was the 21st of June and a huge reminder of all I’ve lost.
The summertime sadness hit me hard when my neighbor was outside planting beautiful flowers in front of her place; and just like that I was slapped in the face with sadness.
I miss #gardening, I miss swimming, I miss beach vacations with my honey, I miss walking in the sand on a sunny day, I miss being able to refinish furniture pieces, heck I even miss being able to cook. . .I miss my life. All the things I miss came rushing back when I saw my neighbor planting. I use to ❤️ gardening! I would plant mostly perennials in the front of our place and would do several window boxes on the deck. Here is a sampling of my gardening (before #paralysis).
As always, I wish you days filled with WONDER! I encourage you to take a minute to WONDER what it is that made you smile today! 😃
