I am a busy wife and mother who loves volunteering with non-profit organizations who just shuffles through life one day to another while living with Spina Bifida.
My journey is mine. It is what God has laid out before me and I have had the free will to choose my path. Though it may not be a path that those around me would have taken, it is my path. I am not “special” in any way. I’m not wanting to be an inspiration. I want to make a path for younger people with Spina Bifida that is easier for them to walk or roll. I want to cut down all the huge bushes and obstacles in our way, so they will be recognized and understood by the medical community and by their own family and friends. I choose to do this by sharing my medical issues and daily life of shuffling everything but maintaining a balance. Hopefully this will lay down a solid foundation for those behind me.
I hope that by sharing my life, I may enter into your life and make you laugh, learn new information, understand and be open to other ways of life. And maybe figure out how to shuffle through everything that lies before you no matter how difficult the challenges may be that lie ahead.
Remember this great quote from Wayne Gretzky:
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take!”
