I just had the most amazing phone call from my former life! A member of the board of directors I used to serve on called me today saying they were recruiting a vice president of sales and marketing.... And they thought of me. It's been almost 6 years since the accident! It's so strange to feel so comfortable in my current life, and then to remember what my life used to be like.
When I last spent time with this board of directors I was married, it was before the accident, and my daughter was only 8 weeks old on the first flight down there. I was nursing during session breaks, staying up all night with my screaming baby, and working all day in DC.
In my life now, I'm deeply committed to Ministry, my healing journey, my theological studies, my art and my job as a single parent... it's hard to imagine what my life used to be like. Following the call isn't an easy path. It certainly doesn't come with the glamour of my former life. But every now and then it's important for me to remember what I've done on the path to where I am now and where I'm going. It's all still me and all still a part of who I am, I just keep growing!
