Reminder…

I met with a lady today
She had a bike wreck
She hit a rock
Or a stick
Debris
Nobody knows
Not her or anyone that saw it happen
She went over the handle bars
Her life will never be the same
She may walk again
She may not
She may use her hands again
She may not
She is loved
She is lovely
I say all this as a reminder loved ones
It can all go away
So very
Very
Fast
Handicapped is a big word to say
To feel
To be
Everyone says, “new normal”
I always hated that
It’s gut wrenching and raw
It’s a free fall
Literally and figuratively
So now you learn to-
Hold on to your life
Hold on to what you love
Hold on to what makes you smile
Hold on with your heart when your hands can’t
And if all is good in your world today..
Take a deep breath and say, “thank you”
