I wrote ‘A Moment in Time’ shortly after I had my spinal cord injury after a fall on January 23rd, 2000.  I just recently had a baby who at the time of my injury was 3 weeks old, and I had a daughter who was 3 years old.Life truly took me by surprise because the events to follow were of nothing I could have even dreamed of. I thought I had the perfect life, the perfect marriage and with the addition of our new baby I really felt very content in my life. I even questioned and changed my faith realizing my culture was no longer accepting of me because I was looked at as some sort of curse for past life penances.If someone had told me I was going to be paralyzed living my life in a wheelchair, barely employable, abandoned, rejected and divorced with two small children. And, that I had to take care of them whilst learning to function as a human being again, I would have thought they were crazy.  Yet, that is exactly where I sat!‘A Moment in Time’ was the beginning of my journey. Revolutionizing and tailoring my life to be the way I needed it to become to begin again. And, when I say I needed it to be, after learning many obstacles would come my way from love, marriage, dating to employment I began to realize the world was truly not a kind place to someone like me. People were cold and the ones that cared were true, but few, and often temporary.  I realized then what the rehabilitation facility was talking about when I stayed there after my injury was profound to me. So I learned to live again, and the book tells how.
