Like Lightning

Here’s what Amber Escudero-Kontostathis who was struck by lightning in early August near The White House says according to a New York Times account:

Her heart stopped twice, her nerves continue to misfire, her foot sometimes feels like it is bare in snow and on the worst days there are 10,000 grains of salt moving through each pore of her feet – she walks with a walker and grieves three others standing beside her who were not as fortunate.

Her response is always – “I’m grateful, I’m grateful”.

Gratitude is not just a word, it’s a way of life that relieves the pain of adversity when it strikes.
