after helping out with rehab, i always feel specila,a nd lucky, that i ahev a heaklthy cpapable body, adn that i aghve family that loves adn cares for me.|
but yesterday, at the vounteer appreciation, i was talking to an old irish man, how had broken his neck around 5 years ago, and was in therapy, and of corse rehab. he has improved, whih is always hopefull, and blessing, but he said, ( with his broken neck) that he felt lucky, to be wher he is, beucase so many people who come to rehab, aren't as fortunate. just the way he said it broke my heart, he was so , at rest and happy at where he was in life, not wanting more, or less. just enjoying life, from where he was.
it just shocked me becuase most the people tehre feel sorry for themsleves, I knopw i probabaly would
a bloody nose, dirty bathrooms, worse cramps since gr.9, and full showers, can't stop me today.
