In February of 2003, I was a left-handed woman, wife and mother in apparent good health. I ate reasonably well, was physically active, had annual checkups, practiced meditation and yoga, attended church regularly, and volunteered in the community.
Today, I am all of those things plus the grandmother of 4; except now, after diagnosis and treatment of soft tissue sarcoma, I am a right-handed amputee with a renewed purpose for life a mission to share an empowering message equipping individuals with the perspective and resources necessary to navigate the inevitable changes that occur in life, by design or by happenstance, while recognizing the powerful potential for transformation by embracing what is.
I have learned that with patience and persistence, I can do anything I want to do. Everyday I am confronted with something that is two-handed. I have the opportunity to learn to do that thing a new way, to ask for help, or to decide gracefully never to do that thing again.
