“People make jokes about ‘being thrown under the bus,’ but it really did happen to me!” she stated.
She sustained injured ribs, a broken humerus, fractured pelvis and a punctured bladder. After a six week hospital stay she returned home after having been told she could potentially face six months in the hospital. “Within six months, I was back to work full time,” she said, “At least I can say the doctors got the number six right!”
She credits having been blessed with plenty of Celtic and Dutch “stubborn” genes as well as the many prayers from people within the faith community, for her speedy recovery.
Now, she is writing a book aptly called, “Lessons Learned from Being Run Over by a Bus” that will incorporate not only her story but those of people who have also overcome the challenges that initially had them feeling as though they had been ‘thrown under a bus!’
Kimberley is looking for stories from people who have faced and overcome challenges such as;
Childhood Abuse/Spousal Abuse and Bullying in the workplace
Homelessness (including being faced with foreclosure of their homes)
Illnesses including mental illness and other life altering health crisis
Death of a loved one or a pet
Accident and recovery
Crisis of Faith
“In a world full of adversity, negative changes and uncertainty we all need to hear stories that come from heart and offer us hope, and reassurance.” She said.
The author plans to have the book published by the end of the year.
Kimberley has previously published the book “The Evolving Woman Series…Daily Reflections” © 2004.
