Présentation de l'éditeur
On that day after Christmas, when all you normally do is play with new presents, or try them on, or eat holiday treats that are lying around the house, I was in a terrible car accident.
I was driving and slid on ice, covered up with snow. I was flown by helicopter to a nearby hospital and sunk into a coma.
Eventually, when I awoke, I was unaware that the right side of my body was paralyzed. My lungs had collapsed and a couple of ribs were broken. I had sustained brain hemorrhages.
But hey, other than that, I was fine.
I didn’t have a scratch on me and by everyone’s accounts, my hair and nails still looked good....
I learned to walk, talk, and write again. And I learned how to use other parts of my brain to improve my memory, which I lost temporarily….
This book isn’t a guidebook for the cheerleaders of life. This book will not tell you that life is always perfect or fun. I won’t teach you how to jump up and down when life gives you lemons.
Everyone has bad days. Everybody cries.
The subsequent pages demonstrate the extraordinary in the ordinary and the extraordinary in us all. They will make you smile and maybe even laugh.
There will be lessons for you to learn (or just be reminded of), reasons not to lose faith (in God, our world, and most importantly, ourselves) and a toast to a heightened level of awareness (wake up)!
I realize that the word, ‘miracle’ is a strong, important word. But we’re talking about our lives here. Our lives are a big deal; through the course of our lives we discover what we can add to the world, how to better mankind, and the strength that is within all of us.
If that’s not important and vital, I honestly don’t know what is.
I’m a realist. We all live miracles, every day.
Believe in Yourself.
