day 11 | slice of life challenge





I was reading a math book for school.

I was sitting by Dale, near the end of the bed, in the rehab unit.

The nurse, from another unit, had taken an extra shift
and recognized James and Dale.

We talked.

She said to me,
"It wasn't a survivable injury. I was preparing your family
for his death that whole first day."

I scratched down what she said to me inside the cover of the math book.
Then I moved her words to this sticky note and placed it in a journal.

Years have passed by.

I reread her words the other day.

To them, it didn't seem possible
that he could survive the head injury from the car accident.

I am reminded that our God is a God of miracles.

And then God...
