Always Be Thankful for the Love We Get

The 10 flight of stairs is a daily challenge and my spirit is about to break and give up. It has been a year now since my accident; the car that I was driving along the express way was hit by a rampaging trailer from the other side. The driver must have fallen asleep and lost control of the wheel with his foot pressed on the gas.

The driver and his crew all died on the spot that night, their truck was blown into pieces and me, I was lucky to be still alive, or am I? it was a nightmare that keeps on haunting me and it left a really bad memory and remembrance, I lost both my legs and my left arm has been immobilized, it is a literally dead weight that I carry around the house now.

There was not a day in my life that I wished I’m dead for I am so useless now, I am nothing but a burden to my family, but this tragic accident has opened my eyes into something else, something so important that I have never noticed before. My family loves me so much, no matter how hard it is for them to take care of a disabled member, there was not a single moment in my life that I saw them neither weep nor felt sorry for me. In fact, with their enthusiasm and energy, they continue to encourage me to live and be happy, they don’t want me to feel sorry for myself for losing my limbs.

“Never ever give up on yourself, Daddy, we will be your arms and feet so you can hold and walk with us.”
