Once upon a time, there was a woman who endured more than she thought she ever could. Mourning the loss of what she thought her life should be, she pulled herself up from the rubble of her broken dreams, clung to her faith and God’s promises and simply started over.
That woman is me. And this is my story… unapologetic-ally written so as to glorify God through all He has led me through. It is my sincerest hope that I “get it right,” as there were so many God-sightings on my journey that left me profoundly at a loss for words at the time. Life is a journey of ups and downs. The highs and lows of it all balance out in the end, and if we cast our eyes upon Him in our deepest valleys, we discover that we can not only remain calm in the storms of our lives, but thrive; even in the darkest places, knowing that His light will shine upon us once again.
Striving for Olympic gold…a car accident which left me with a traumatic brain injury…having to relearn how to read, write, walk and talk again… being diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis…becoming a single, mom to a precious “miracle” baby… losing our entire family/home in a traumatic home invasion/stalking which left us homeless for 4 1/2 years… suffering pulmonary embolisms and a heart attack which nearly ended my life… being ground zero and having to evacuate from the historic Black Forest, CO fire… all while battling the life-long consequences of traumatic brain injury and Multiple sclerosis. Learning a new way of life with multiple challenges and learning to love life no matter what circumstances I’m going through. This is but a snippet of my life since it all changed that fateful day of July 2, 1998…when life was so much simpler. A time spent dreaming and striving for the ultimate goal of Olympic gold…
Join me in upcoming posts where I will share the incredible story that God has given me to tell. I hope that by joining me on this journey, you will be able to spot the God-sightings in your own life, and embrace the simple things; as I know those things to be the biggest gifts of this life. ~Kimberly
