Lydia was brutally assaulted in her home on July 4th, 2011 and she survived. Even after spending months in the hospital and having to re-learn how to talk, she was able to forgive her attacker and daily live with joy and purpose. Her story inspired us so much that I had to share with my readers. She shared an acronym of her name that I will never forget:
LYDIA ~ Live Your Days Inspired Anew
Her story has inspired me to take one day at a time and create the best day possible. I’ve thought of her every day since viewing the show.
