Grateful to be alive

On the news today they have been talking about this incredible woman who lost all her limbs to a mysterious virus, just like any other virus we seem to pick up at any given time of the year. This virus or infection almost cost her life.

This woman is a mother to three young girls. Despite this horrifying ordeal she remains optimistic and hopeful about the future.

As a mother I can only imagine the insurmountable obstacles and challenges that lie ahead for this woman. As a woman I am in awe of her positivity, and her strength.

9 weeks ago she was living a happy normal life, balancing kids and life possibly a job as well, now her future and the future of her family has been altered drastically. What lies ahead is not yet know, the only certainty is that it will be a massive challenge, a battle like no other.

It kind of makes one realise that in life you can never take anything for granted, because you just never know what lies around the corner be it good or bad.
