Especially around this time of the year, it gave her hope. It was good for her to see someone else who is going through what she's gone through.
Just about everyone with a spinal cord injury has been there and done that. Hope is a good thing...but hope alone isn't going to get anyone anywhere. Eventually reality will set in. Its just as important to accept yourself as it is to have hope. It doesn't have to be one way or the other, but there should really be a balance.

I have had my hope crushed numerous times, the more I find out about my injury...but that doesn't mean I have given up on hope or my faith either.

Once again, just my thoughts.
