a dream that i’m sure will come true someday

I had a dream.

I was wearing a dress with a long skirt that blew in the wind.

I was laughing and joking with my friends.  Brittany and Natalie were there.  Amanda was too. There was a lot of people to see, my dream parties are fun.

The champagne flowed bubbly and sparkly.

I moved to see Heather and Meghan, to hear the giggles of my Mom and the pastor’s wife, Cathy.

My dress had flowers on it, big white ones.  Like camellias.

Most importantly, in my dream, I walked.  I floated.  I glided from person to person as I stopped to say hello.

My legs moved like there was nothing wrong.  Like nothing had ever been wrong. Like nothing ever would be.

Then I woke up.  The dream was over.

I sat up.

I looked down and stared at my legs.

I think these legs will someday move that way.  Like nothing’s wrong.

    Love you!

    What a beautiful dream. It will happen one day, that dream will come true and your legs will be moving, walking, like nothing ever happened.

    Anissa- Your dream is showing you your future. Believe it! Each day’s journey –and all your hard work– is one day closer to living it. Now go grab that future!

    I also think they will move like that someday. But for now, flowing champagne sounds like a half-decent way to pass the time…xo

    Dude. I am a firm believer that dreams (in every sense) can come true. I’ve had so many instances of ‘deja vu’ that have happened to me – that I’ve realised after were actually snippits of dreams that I have had. It’s the weirdest sensation (and probably makes me sound more than a bit crazy, which granted, I am..but hopefully not in the BAD way) to be living a dream that you’ve had before.

    Scary, weird, but AWESOME.

    Ahhh! I cannot wait for you to experience it!!!!!!

    I know that one day…all of your hard work will pay off and this lovely dream of yours will come true…and everyone will be cheering you on, happy that you’ve been able to accomplish what everyone knew you always could – you’re one tough cookie – and step by step (literally!), I know that you’ll prove it to the world :)

    I know what it’s like to be physically broken and how wonderful it is to be (almost) whole again. If anyone can do this, you can. Your legs will eventually work the way you want them to.

    I don’t want to alarm you, but it sounds kinda like we were getting married. WHICH MAKES PERFECT SENSE!

    I am going to find a tux, only a few more weeks!

    You’ll do this and so much more, until then, we gather and hope and believe and encourage. Oh, and we look up, yes, we look up at a woman who embodies courage and grace. And then I think some people flash you Drew Barrymore style, but I may be confused.

  15. Scala July 15, 2010 at 8:26 AM #

    I look forward to seeing pictures of you in your dress, and posts from these friends about how it was such an awesome party.

    It will happen. No doubts.

  16. Melinda July 15, 2010 at 7:55 AM #

    If anyone can walk again, it’s you! You are the strongest person I know and I have no doubt whatsoever you will be walking within the year. *hugs*

  17. Dawn July 15, 2010 at 4:06 AM #

    Keep holding on to that dream!
    I’m one of many praying for it to happen for you – and that you can find that dress!

    If sheer strength of will and determination have anything to do with it, I have absolutely no doubt you will move that way again. Go, go , go!

    That’s totally going to happen someday. I have no doubt. And I’m willing to bet that we can even find you the dress.

    I think they will too.

    Anissa, that is a beautiful dream. I hope you continue to have those dreams until your dreams not only come true but they are more than you could ever imagine! Our dreams may not always be what happens but I think sometimes what ends happening is something far greater than what we could have ever dreamed. That is what I pray happens for you.

    Love, Tracy
