How many limbs are you missing?

Generally I don't write when I have nothing nice to say.  My family is tired and overwhelmed with the chaos of life as we know it.  Our obligations have outweighed our spirit lately, and it shows.  I haven't quite finalized the arrangements on a full blown pity party, but I'm close.  And then I met Nick.

I am reviewing speakers for an event in Washington DC and Nick Vujicic was recommended.  He was born without arms and legs.  ANY arms and legs. 

He is handsome
He is charismatic
He is funny


He is NOT feeling sorry for himself

because he's tired and has three more meetings before his weekend begins.  He's smiling.  And joking.  And proving that life is nothing but what you make it.

Are you tired and overwhelmed like us?  Take some time to watch Nick.  I truly hope you'll be blessed, too.

Have a great weekend!

I've actually heard of him before and have seen him speak on video. He's awesome and a real eye opener to all of us.

I have heard of Nick before. You never know what you take for granted. Sometimes we need to be told and then it all comes back into place.

I have seen videos with him, he really is inspirational.

He's phenomenal. And you're right---we all need a little reminder sometimes. I often need a wake-up call when I get too bogged down in my own pity party.

It's amazing how sad we try and make our lives sound when others who are more challenged are making so.much.more out of life than we ever have. The joke is on us, sometimes, isn't it? :)

I hope you've had a wonderful weekend!
