“I May Have Lost A Leg But I Gained A New Life” – Woman Shares How She Never Valued Her Birthday Until She Battled For Her Life



Many of us take things for granted because we think they will always be there. We forget that nothing in live is guaranteed.

In Ufuoma Osera’s case, she never valued her birthdays until she found herself on a hospital bed fighting for her life. Scaling through that battle, Ufuoma says she has lent to be more grateful for life and sees birthday celebration as a time to be grateful for witnessing another year.

She wrote,

I’ve never really been a “birthday” kind of girl Iv always kind of taken my birthdays for granted cos I’m like there will be another one next year. Looking back now at this picture I did not know what was going on around me I was in a battle for my life did not think I will make it to see this particular birthday so I just want to climb or in my case hop up to the highest mountain and scream ITS MY BIRTHDAY THANK YOU JESUS.

I may have lost a leg but I gained a new life a better one a sweeter one, one that money can’t buy I am happier than I’ve ever been I am healthy and grounded in the knowledge that God loves me he kept his promise. I am so thankful to be here I am thankful for my family and friends #birthdaygirl #7.7.17 #canceriansrule #imhungry#thankful
