Journal entry by Amy + Jeff Schoenrock

I waited til now to post since it’s been such a crazy week with the daylight savings time change, full moon, coronavirus news, today being Friday the 13th and my 1 year anniversary of my life-changing, horrible fall!

In some ways, it feels like years ago, in other ways, it feels like days ago since I slipped on the ice. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about it. My hands still hurt, usually at night. I see the scar on my neck. I lose my grip on something I could have held onto otherwise. My life is forever changed, but I am alive! I survived a terrible accident.

I often think about how different my life would be if I would have been paralyzed. Where we would park when we go places, where we would sit at the girls’ events. I definitely had some angels watching over me.

As I reflect on the past year, I am so thankful for all those who helped us when I was hurt. I am so grateful for all the food, gifts, thoughts, and prayers.

This week my friends who were meeting me to walk that morning set up pedicures and dinner to celebrate the anniversary of my fall. I’ve included a couple pics of us as well as the bouquet Jeff had delivered today (thanks, Jill!)

Thanks again for all the support this past year. I feel the love. Stay safe and well!
