Feeling Sad and Sadly Embarrassed 😢

Yes I’m feeling sad. My childhood BFF lost her brother to cancer. 😢  Their house was like my second home when we were younger. My childhood BFF had 7 siblings so with 8 children and always a few friends floating around, well it was a party even when it wasn’t a party.

This will be the first wake I’ve had to attend since that fateful day in June 2016 left me #paralyzed and in this da___ #wheelchair, and, well, I’m embarrassed to have to be seen in this wheelchair, I’m embarrassed to admit it but, yes, I’m vain.

In my head I know I’m going for a very special friend and her family but at the same time, I hate having to go and see so many of my old friends from school and be in this wheelchair. Seeing people from my past life, before #paralysis, is harder for me.

Sad too is the fact that I will not be able to attend the church service the following day because I have no way to get there as my honey will be working.

Instead of being able to focus on supporting my friend and her family, first I’m now forced to think, can I enter the funeral home? Is the viewing room going to allow for enough space for this wheelchair to roll past the folding chairs where so many will be seated, etc. Once again, that slap in the face hits me, reminds me that my life is no longer care free.

To my departed friend, you fought a tough battle. You touched the lives of so many. Now is your time to rest. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

As always, I wish you days filled with WONDER – take a minute to WONDER what it is that made you smile today!

  • Is it your neighbor’s brother? So sad. If you don’t go that’s sad. You r in a w/c true. But I bet they would give anything to have there brother with them, even if he were in a w/c.
