7 Years Ago Today ... To Heaven and Back

Sometimes things happen in life not of our choosing and often making no sense at the time - if it ever makes sense. What I have learned first hand is that though it makes no sense - no matter if it is good or bad - everything in life happens for a reason.

Seven years ago today (October 28th, 2006) at 8:30 p.m. life as I had know it came to an end. That is when I was struck by a careless driver as I crossed the street to a friend's home for the celebration of another friend's birthday(you can read more here). Sometime between being struct and awakening from my coma 2-3 weeks before Christmas while my body lay mangled and broken my spirit returned home to heaven. I may not recall the accident - but I recall every moment of my journey and the beauty I saw and heard during my time in heaven (you can read more here)

I am still getting my bearings with this "new" life and trying to create a me that fits, but what I am more certain than ever is that I am meant to live a life of service, to help others who are struggling with change in their life. Despite all the odds of my survival from the doctors - I survived, and am not just existing - I'm THRIVING!!

So as of this year ~ I will no longer look at this date October 28th as an ending ... But instead as a BEGINNING ... Happy 7 years of Re-birth to me!!! 

To all the wonderful new visitors and regular readers of this blog know that no matter what life throws at you - IT WILL MAKE YOU STRONGER ... even when it all seems hopeless! I hope that I continue to inspire and motivate you to live  your best High Heeled Life! 

Hugs and Blessings,

Stay in Step with High Heeled Life ...


  1. August 28 is a date my sister calls her second birthday. It is the day she received a bone marrow transplant as she had stage 4 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. She had been through so much already as 9 months prior to her diagnosis of cancer she had given birth to a little girl who passed two hours later. When initially diagnosed with cancer she was given a 10% chance of living. At that time too she was pregnant. She was unable to maintain that pregnancy through the cancer treatment. The only chance was a bone marrow donor. It is said that siblings are the best chance for a match. There are 7 of us. No one matches her or I but the other five there is a match. There was a very generous young lady who donated for the second time in her life (the first had been for her mother 5 years prior). My sister is now 12 yrs out from that bone marrow transplant. She is the mother of a beautiful 10 yr old that she and her husband adopted and is such a wonderful part of our family.

    You are correct that if you can make it through the struggle will make you stronger at the other end.

    I wish you continued blessings as you continue on with what life has to offer for you.
