This article really touched me. A few weeksago I was in a horrible car accident. I went over the side of a bridge and wassmashed inside my car. Luckily, my only serious injury was a broken hip, butuntil something like this happens, you don't realize how much you take forgranted.
I can't fully walk for three months. Things that used to besimple are now a challenge. It really gives you a totally different outlook onlife. I was ecstatic when I could just get in and out of bed by myself for thefirst time.
People need to realize that the small things really mean alot, and not to take life for granted, as I once did.
