I went to another Goodwill of Kansas Annual Dinner last night that had a good keynote speaker. Chet McDoniel was born with no arms and has partial legs....and he goes around the country lecturing on being happy.
Check out this video from one of his lectures when you think our FM has handed you a hard hand.
 
We all have challenges.....how do we face them? Standing up or lying down?

I truly believe people like that was put on this earth to teach the rest of us Jokat. It's like the man that cried cause he had no shoes til he met a man with no feet. Yes my arms hurt and my hands really hurt but I will remember Chet McDoniel today and be thankful I have arms and hands to hurt.
 
Thanks for sharing that with us.
 
luv and hugs

As Marlee said, Thanks for sharing. We always have people that are worse off than we are. And it does give us a different perspective on things.

Hugs, Karen
