Broken by Sarah Callus is a personal testimony of experiences, in which the author has grown to appreciate life and to walk in the light of gratitude.
Sometimes we often take for granted the things we have. There are people all over the world that wish they were in someone else's shoes. The overall feel of this book is to appreciate who you are and what you have. The author suffered an injury that shook her entire world. She went from being independent to depending on others as her means of existence. Not in a life or death situation, but in a practical way. The author made a statement that should be placed on a billboard for the whole world to see. It summarizes the thought of living.
"By having my life taken away for a while, it really made me appreciate it. I would have given anything to be able to go to work, to run along the river, to go and sit under a tree in the park. All the things I took for granted on a daily basis, I value now more than ever."
Sometimes we take for granted the things we have. When we are stripped of those things, it can send a person into a state of depression. I once heard someone say, "Health isn't valued until it's lost." This can be applied to life as well. The author's untimely experience has taught her to appreciate and value those things taken for granted. This is a nice way to point out how important it is for us to be thankful for all things.
