23

 

Tomorrow marks a day of birth, mine to be exact. Though, I started life all over again almost 3 years ago. I’m still learning how to walk, still learning new things that go hand-in-hand with my independence. There is a song that is constantly stuck in my mind, mostly because Boss Baby is Harper’s favorite movie so we tend to watch it quite often. Ugh. You know what I’m talking about Moms and Dads. 

It goes like this: 

“Blackbird singing in the dead of night

Take these broken wings and learn to fly

All your life

You were only waiting for this moment to arise.” 

This song… It really resonates with me. I was always waiting for my life to be the way that I had always dreamed it would be. I was a broken girl who always made the wrong choices. When I became an amputee it was like I had been reborn into the person I always wanted to be. A good one, a kind one, a successful one, a happy one. 

So now, just as I am, I soar. 

Even with broken wings.
