After watching this short clip, which reminds me of the “What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger” clip a few months back, I was nearly in tears. It is inspiring to see sick kids dancing and smiling and singing along to the toons. Its heartbreaking to not understand why they are in the hospital, why whatever illness or injury chose them to stay their days there, or at least right now, we may never know. What I do know is that being in the hospital is not fun. I thankfully was only in intense care for three weeks, after that I was sent home. I recall seeing a young girl (who was actually a few years older than me) walk laps around the hospital floor. I didn’t know her but I saw her every day, walking laps, steady and slow, but she would walk her laps. I never met her or learned her name, but it hurt to know she had been in an accident, that she had been in the hospital for months, almost a year. It was unbelievable when I was let out of the hospital just a few days later. I haven’t thought about this young lady in a while, but this video reminded me of her. I pray wherever her life may be that she may be recovery and moving forward. I pray that now she is able to walk laps around the park in her neighborhood and for her life to be in a better place today than it was when our paths crossed.
Music and Medicine go beautifully together and the encouragement of the doctors, nurses and therapists is seen throughout this video. I praise people who dedicate their lives in the service of others. I pray for speedy healing for all of those ill and injured and in need of healing to get better mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. I am so grateful for anyone who brings a smile to another person’s face, and for whoever works and cheers on all of these patients. May only good things and good days head their way, today!
