The Princess and The Prosthetic

Dear Prosthetic Leg

April 16, 2021 in Warrior Princess - No Comments
Dear Prosthetic Leg,
Thank you for supporting me.
Thank you for holding me up right and reminding me how powerful I am.
Thank you for reminding me that different doesn’t mean deficient and that different can be beautiful too.
Thank you for giving me the freedom to walk unassisted.
Thank you for helping me stay steady in the saddle, gliding across the dance floor, and sprinting across the track.
Thank you for teaching me life lessons early.
Thank you for teaching me to view people on the content of their character and not what they look like.
Thank you for showing us the love of a community.  The people that support us, cheer for us, and love on us mean the world to me.
Thank you for making me more compassionate, empathetic, and kind.
Thank you for showing me that strength isn’t always a measure of physical stamina.
Thank you for helping me navigate a world that’s not built for people like me.
Thank you for the hard times and growing pains because they made me grateful for the good times. I’ll never take a good socket fit for granted.
Thank you for helping me walk away from ignorance, prejudice, ableism and discrimination with grace and dignity.
Thank you for keeping me steady when kids made fun of me, adults stared, and bullies laughed at me.
Thank you for understanding you will never take the place of a real leg or the experience of having two feet. I will always have a bit of grief over the loss of my leg but that doesn’t negate the importance of you in my life.
Thanks for all that you do and all that you are❤
Love, Callie
Jaime

Jaime

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
