Awakenings (4)

A Picture of Survival

Something was changing in the darkness. There was light, but I wasn’t sure in which direction.

My dreams started to brighten. It seemed that it was daylight and I believe it had been night for the two months prior.

I was wearing shorts. Riding in a convertible. Hair up. Relaxed.

I was being allowed to wake up!

As the medication levels got lower and lower, my mind started to see things literally in a different light.

Then the day finally came. My daughter came after work and said hello to me and I responded! I have to admit that I don’t remember that, but shortly thereafter, I remember everything.

My eyelids were crusted over with layer upon layer of yucky skin and things. I couldn’t open them, but I could hear and feel so well.

My husband was kissing my face over and over saying “I love you, baby” and “You did it”. It felt so good to be back in the world!

Then my daughter leaned over kissing and hugging me and whispered into my ear one of the most amazing things I’ve ever heard.

“Mum, you’re the strongest person I know”.

I awakened in more ways than one that day. And I knew I would never waste another day of my life.

I will LIVE every day until I die.
