This time one year ago I was on an unexpected Spring Break.
School closed and the vacation was moved up.
I was enjoying my March of writing and blogging.
I had plans for the garden.
This time a year ago plus one day, my daughter was injured in an accident.
My husband and I collected cash and medical supplies and flew to Cuba.
We went to Calixto Garcia Hospital for the first of many interpreted meetings with doctors, interpreted by our daughter’s friends.
We saw our daughter flat and immobile in the ICU.
This year, today, we sat together at dinner
And reminisced, ate and drank,
Remembered dark moments and laughed at them
And toasted with gratitude the healing of the year.
