Tomorrow will make one year since it happened.
I still remember it like it was yesterday, all the emotions, the worry, the fear in her eyes and in her cries, the x-rays that CLEARLY showed 2 bones where there should have been one. I remember feeling like there was suddenly a mountain in front of us. How would a 7 year old make it through 10 weeks of walkers, crutches, full leg casts, sponge baths, and no running. How would her mother make it?
That was one year ago tomorrow.
And today, my B is bionic! As seems most typical with kids, she has proven resilient, strong, and ready to push on. This year has brought her much success on the soccer field, lots of miles on her bike, and endless fun running around with her friends. There is nothing holding this girl back.
A moment today is all I need to reflect on that day last year.
It's a wonderful joy for me to be able to think back to then, and then look at her now, and be so thankful.
But I've only got a moment.
She's pretty hard to keep up with these days.
