We are not given a good or bad life. We are given a life. It's up to us to make it good or bad.

A decade in review and something for you!  I had a toddler and a teenager when I was hit by a SUV.  Ruby would hang out on the back of my wheelchair.  After I finally made it to crutches she would hold on to my crutches because she couldnt hold my hand to cross the street.  Now even though shes almost 12 I try to hold her whenever I can to make up for lost times.  So many struggles that ultimately led me down a road of pain and despair yet gave me a life filled with gratitude and happiness.
