A Life Altering Scar
How Family, Faith, and Laughter Helped
All of us have or will have struggles in our lives that end up causing scars we could never have imagined would happen. I needed to trigger a positive outcome from my possibly fatal larger-than-life injury. I absolutely had to find a way to make sense of it. That is what compelled me to capture it and then write about my experience. That desire was to help others as well as myself. By telling you what I went through “in detail,” this story places me in a very vulnerable position. Yet, I am willing to subject myself to that knowing it could possibly benefit others. Throughout parts of this memoir, I needed to take my life back from the grips of death, and you will see how family, faith, and laughter helped me to do that.
