Grateful for the reminder

I just read a blog comment that made the light bulb go off. "I'm handicapped, but my mind is clear" and folks what a blessing to be able to articulate my hopes, fears, dreams and aspirations. I've taken that for granted. I haven't taken proper stock. My value is not in a dollar bill, a principality or societal norm. Cerebral Palsy is allowing me the greatest gift. Not giving a darn. When you go under the knife more times than you can count, and consider having needles inserted into your abdomen as no big deal or routine, what others think of you is no big deal. My body is high maintenance, so what. I'm grateful for every doctor, everything. I'm learning what it is to love self without fear of reprisal. Thank you Sheri. "The mind is a terrible thing to waste" or take for granted.

  2. This is so true! I've learned a lot going through infertility recently and I choose to be grateful for every doctor and experience we went through. It's better than being bitter.

  3. I'm sorry you have had to go through this your whole life, but you are such a special person with a much wisdom that you can give to this sometimes troubled world. Thank you for that, my dear.

  4. Beautiful post!
    I had no idea you had that!...
    There are more terrible diseases! A great number of people is handicapped in their own character! And there is no cure for that either!
    So sometimes, I think the world it is sick... although apparently it is full of normal people...
    For me... you are not an handicapped! But many others are...
    I think you are a very special person... many others... are not special at all!
    A big kiss! All the best!
