The lady who our cards are going to was in a head on collision with another car that strayed into her lane of traffic and she was severely injured. They weren't sure she was going to make it, but with her will and determination she is fighting back. She's in rehab and probably will be for some time because walking is an issue, although she can eat on her own and talk. If you'd like to join in, here is a link to the story and the lady's address where to send the cards.
This hits very close to home since about 3 years ago, my younger brother was a victim of road rage and was forced off the road into a concrete highway barrier and suffered multiple injuries that have left him paralyzed from the neck down. I have been so amazed that he has not let this get him down or keep him from doing things that he loves to do. In fact, he and my SIL are on a cruise this week which I think is fabulous! Yes, there have been many changes in his life, but he was not one to sit down and pity himself and say "Why me"? He has accepted his lot in life and has gone on from there.
So much for my story to you. Here now is the card that I created for Brenda.
