Essay On A Day With A Wheelchair

Good Essays
My Dad rolled the wheelchair that I was sitting in out the front doors of the hospital. I looked at my Mom and the look of relief on her face, as well as signs of sleepless nights and worry caused from the last week. My older brother walked next to my wheelchair and showed off a new action figure as if it was just another average day, excited to share new things with me. I never looked back at my Dad in that moment, but I like to think he looked at all of us with great relief, ready to go home. I may never know what was actually going through everyone’s minds in that moment, but I do know one thing, through this experience we all learned that life is unpredictable. Keenan and I were having a great day to ourselves at my house. It was Friday so school got out early and we were able to come home and indulge in snacks and television, and embrace the weekend.

    I couldn’t wait to give my kids a better start to their day, I couldn’t wait to serve my family dinner before eight every night, and I couldn’t wait to see the positive effects this would have on my school work. I set a schedule to complete everyday so that my day could run very smooth without being rushed or lacking in any area. The first thing I did was set my alarm for thirty minutes earlier, so that after I hit the snooze a few times I was still able to give myself an hour to get three people ready. The next thing on my schedule was to lay clothes out the night before so that the morning wasn’t filled with tearing up closets and figuring out where my daughter’s favorite top is with ten minutes left to get out the house. Now for dinner I decided that I will start implementing more crock pot meals, so that while I am at school, my dinner is cooking.…

They do not get to spend it with their family and friends. Or not knowing when their birthday even is (thedailyviz.com). I also think that people should not overreact, like I did, when their birthday is not recognized at first because we should just be happy we get another year of life on the beautiful…

    The morning of my birthday was just just like any other day, but I was just a year older. My mother had gone to work, or so I had thought and I was at home with my sister and grandparents. Everyone wished me a Happy Birthday and told me that the family was going to come over later that evening to go out and celebrate. I ended up getting ready and just relaxed in the living room watching TV. It was about an hour later, when I hear a car honking in the drive way, so I look out the window and see my family outside.…
