Every Beginning starts from an Ending ~ A Memory In Time ~

October 28th, 2006 ~ 8:30 p.m.

This date and time will forever be the defining moment at which my life as
I knew it, lived it, loved it, enjoyed it, and treasured came to an end.

The voice I had known as mine is no more, in its place
is a voice I do not recognize, at times, as belonging to me.

The once toned, fit, healthy body that encased and kept my soul safe,
 is now a reflection I don't reconize in the mirror.

The sharp, quick , capable of making the toughest decisions,
mind, giving me independence ~ is no longer.
It is now slower, foggy, and confused at times,
requiring to depend on others for support.

On this day I say... I have not forgotten "ME" and miss "ME" terribly.
But I'm learning to treasure the time , laughter, tears, happiness 
and the memories made, before it all came to an end.
I will use it all as a stepping stone to "Re-invent ME"..

ME 3.0 ~ In Development!!

Haunting Thoughts....

The man whose driver’s car door mirror would take my life could only say
“I didn’t see her”. What could he have been doing that he did not see me standing there?

In a well lit area, wearing a white coat, waiting for traffic to pass. I don’t recall any part of the accident ~ have been told, witnesses were saying at the scene “She was waiting to finish crossing”

When asked by police what speed he was going ? The driver said “the speed limit” when asked what that was he replied “60 km”  It’s a 50 km area. Speeding by his own admission, yet not charged.

What kind of person strikes another person down with his vehicle and months later his insurance had still not been notified?

  7. Thank you for sharing this. You may have told us before, and I missed it. I have been following your psin, but was not sure just what had happened. Sometimes my senior moments kick in and I forget. It seams that old saying, nothing is fair in love or war. I am not sure if it is anywhere anymore. You are doing fine and one day be a better person because of this experience.

  8. You amaze me...with your spirit and with your words!!! I know each day must be a struggle, but you would never be where you are, touching so many lives, if you hadn't lived through this tragic experience...and triumphed over it. You are still You...a beautiful soul! And I feel blessed to know you!

    Super big hug!!!

  9. I am so sorry, bad anniversarys are hard to take. I have no idea how hard lifes changes have been , but I know you have a great and gentle soul, and a great gift of words:-)) Shame on that man for the lack of respect!!
    I am sending my love and a big hug your way:-))

  10. It's odd how a specific moment in a day can change our lives irrevocably. One minute you are the person you've always known, the next, you're a changed woman. One of my favorite quotes is by Maya Angelou: “I can be changed by what happens to me. but I refuse to be reduced by it.”

  11. I have no words to share or lessen your pain. I can only try and imagine how deeply you feel it. I remember the exact moment that changed my life. But mine was changed for better. So I cannot even begin to think how much courage it requires to be you.

  12. i am so so sorry to hear these frustrating details of what happened to you. i know that nothing i can say will change what happened to you. but i want you to know that i'm thinking of you and sending positive thoughts your way!

  13. That is just so horrible!

    Did the driver ever apologize to you?

    (I'm new to your blog)

  14. You have not lost parts of yourself. What you were has made way for someone stronger and brighter. Your path will bring within you a strength like you have never seen. I am sure of it. Your journey has just begun and you will touch many along this journey. You will gain and give in wisdom, strength and in peace.XO

  15. I did not know! Wow, thank you for sharing. Your writing is wonderful and I hope your reinvention is amazing!

  16. I am not usually an optimist but what I notice in terms of my reaction to this moving and powerful post is that I see this day as a re-birth day for you. You are so brave and courageous and wise to use this incredibly difficult experience as a stepping stone. I am inspired by you and your journey. Big hugs and much love.

  17. Your writing is wonderful. Thanks for sharing your heart with us. We love you!

  20. Wow, so it was the speed he was going and the mirror that caused so much damage? This is awful, I had always assumed that two cars had collided and that you had been in one of them, so thanks for sharing this as it helps all your readers to understand what happened. xxxx Have a great weekend my friend, sorry I havent had much time to drop by lately I am trying to keep a presence in blogland xxx

  21. Thanks for sharing your heart with us.May God give you strength and understanding to sustain your pain.

  22. Wow what an amazing story. When I first started reading it, I thought it was about Ahlzheimers. You see, I do volunteer work around Ahlzheimer patience and they too have lost theirself and miss knowing who they once were. I guess there are many facets to life and to die to live again is just one of those things God does for us. You are a special person and God is seeing you through it. Bless You!
