Today is the 9th anniversary of my car crash & the beginning of a life with purpose. It is through tasting death and loss that I truly learned the value of life and all abilities. How great it is to be alive! How great it is to be able to feel, move, see, hear, think, and speak! How blessed we are! Oh my God! I cry out to you with thanksgiving! THANK YOU FATHER FOR LIFE!!!!!!!!!
Writings On The Wall:
My Mom: My daughter has come a LONG WAY in all aspects OF HER new life. Today, 9 years ago
was her car accident (still can't believe it happened to her and our
family). Don't take life for granted. You never know how it can change in
an instant! We've been blessed to have her another year! She was found
on pavement not breathing, God breathed life back in to her, He was not
done with her! She's a living testimony of faith, prayer, perseverance,
determination, finding meaning and true purpose in life. We would not
have made it without God's guidance and strength, so never give up on a
miracle, not even a tiny one.
My Sister: I'm so blessed to have you, sister. Things could be worse and such a loss for all of us to not have you. I love you!

from God. Tonya, I love you girly and I cannot wait to celebrate your

complain about nonsense. I have never heard anything but positivity come
out of you and you truly do inspire me. Thank you for sharing your

have realized how much light you radiate to this world and I am so glad
you are spreading it. I am very blessed to have met you. See you soon
