Are you proud of me? Was I worth saving? Have I proven to you why I was worth saving? Was this the path you chose for me? Because it just seems so clear to me. Thank you for paving it for me. I’ve never been so focused or have seem so clear in my entire life. This life is just so easy now. But getting to this point was another story. But all of the pain, the tears, the anger, and the feelings of hopelessness were worth it to get here.
Were you with me the night of my accident? I thought so. I could feel you there. I felt that firm grip on the wheel and I knew that everything would be okay.
I’m sorry that I blamed you for so many things during that first year. I did not think you were there with me. But looking back on it I now know that you were there every day watching over me. You gave me my family and my friends to fall back on. You gave me my mom’s shoulder to cry on. You gave me my dad who made sure I had a home to come back to. You made my brother a nurse so that he could take care of me. You gave me everything I needed and I’m sorry that I blamed you for not being there.
I remember being in that Kohl’s bathroom crying and praying to you for a sign that everything was going to be okay. You gave it to me when that song came on the radio. I realized that I was praying for the wrong thing. I realized that I should be praying for happiness rather than to walk again. I finally felt like you were there with me again.
You helped me find my path through writing. You led me to stumble upon the therapy program that was offered in Columbus. You helped me find the perfect place to live. You found me the perfect person to take care of me who brought a smile to my face every day. I prayed for happiness and you brought it to me.
You made the impossible possible when I graduated from college. I asked for direction and on the day I graduated I already knew what I had planned for my life.
Originally I thought you were against me and now I know that you are with me every second of every day. I now pray to you every night because I know you’re with me and I know you are listening. I thank you for each thing that happened that day. I ask you to help me to continue to spread my message. I ask you to help my friend make a complete recovery from cancer and sure enough he has given me good news.
I sincerely thank you for everything you have done for me. I thought that life was too hard to handle but today things are easy. I have more than enough help and support. Thank you for giving me the chance to prove that my life was worth saving. I know that you had the final say in keeping me alive. I look forward to your plans for me for the future. Thank you for the bottom of my heart!

Amen! Keep growing, Adam. I can’t imagine what you’ve gone through but I’m so happy to see the inspiring changes in your spirit.
Thank you for reminding me to be thankful, even when just this week I found out my dad has cancer….
I also thank God for your life every day. I’ll have to tell you though, I was very confused and very angry with God. It took me awhile to make peace with his decision, but knowing that you are happy with God, then that helps me so much with my faith. Thanks honey for giving me strength in this tough world we live in. You made me smile today and I have a very positive attitude.
Believing and saying “Let go, let God” has always worked for me. We are so blessed to have you in our lives. Keep up the good work and awesome attitude. Love, Aunt B
Adam, what a beautiful message. You brought tears to my eyes. I’m so happy for you. Linda
Thank you God, everyday, thank you, thank you, thank you. I can’t imagine not having you in our lives. I was never angry at God, because I always knew he saved you for a reason and you have proven me right again and again. Love, Mom
Hey adam! i was just shown your blog from my aunt..I havent read many yet but I really liked this one and can relate to it really well..with having a near death out of body expierience on 12/29.. im glad you are taking advantage of your second chance and that you have found your purpose 🙂 my close call also helped me with that and strengthened my relationship with God. keep inspiring people and creating this positive change that you are! God is good! i actually posted this quote on my facebook today, i think you will like it..
“Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think you’ve lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now.”
