January Small Stone# Thirty

I’ve just watched a local TV program, a mix of magazine and news. One of tonights offerings was the story of a young man, just seventeen who had a major stroke. He now has ‘locked in’ syndrome, and his parents had been told that he would never be able to communicate – he proved them wrong. He is in a wheelchair and unable to speak, but now uses his eye movements to control a computer, that then types and speaks his words. So to help other stroke victims he is writing a book.
How dare I complain that I’ve lost my mojo.

  1. It just shows that we forget just how lucky we are … and but for the Grace of God, it could be us… it makes complaining about a small ailment seem so insignificant …

  2. Agree that people like this are amazing. But, even if someone else has it worse than you, it does not change the reality that you are in your situation, good or bad.

I would love to hear from you . . .
