Nearly 22 years ago, I was a quadriplegic that recovered fully from an illness and with the exception of being a slow walker and slower than normal stamina, you would never know that I had to learn to walk again. TODAY, July 5th, 2014, in Beijing China, I started a climb that I was not sure I would complete. With the loving encouragement of my husband Steve and countless sweet chinese children along the way who allowed me to use the hand rail at times. I MADE IT to the top of one of the “7 Wonders of the World”. The TOP, and the complete END of this one particular (not as often climbed) section. It took many hours to go up and about half to go down.
I dedicate this post to the men and women, past, present & future that live within our bodies in ways others may not understand and to everyone who have supported and encouraged them in the past, present & future.
I am humbled today and very much appreciative of the gift of life.
Big Hugs & Lots of Love,
ps. More photos to follow of our the journey itself – now for some much needed sleep.
