An Ambivalent Anniversary

Anniversaries are funny things. They can offer a chance to reminisce about fond memories, or an opportunity to honour past events, the death or birth of a loved one.

Tomorrow marks a year since my accident. A year I very nearly didn’t have. A blessing, a second chance. A tough and difficult year.

It is with a mix of joy and trepidation that I will embark on a similar journey that I started last year but never finished. I am thankful that I can make the journey again, that I am able to return. Yet there is still some anxiety, some fear, some healing still to be done. The scars are not yet healed.

A year seems like a long time, and yet it passes so quickly. A year on, I am hopeful about what the next year will bring.

  1. God didn’t want you yet Helen, he want’s you for next year and the years after, you’ve got too much to give to this world. Those scars will remind you of how special you are to him and to us, he saved you that day, how lucky we all are because of that. xxx
