"I thank God for my handicaps, for through them I have found myself, my work and my God." Helen Keller
Sometimes I think I take things too much for granted. Everyday kinds of things I don't think much about.....like waking up in the mornings....jumping out of bed and moving my body however I want. Simple things....but for some....super huge.
Everyday normal stuff to me is not everyday normal stuff to someone else. I'm grateful for....
-the ability to see the world....especially the faces of my kids and the spectacular sights in nature
-the ability to speak and use my voice and hear the voices of others.
-the ability to hear sounds....the sweetness of a child's laughter, the song of a bird or the wind blowing through the trees
-the ability to stand up, run, hike, goof with the kids.....move however, whenever I want.
-mostly....the ability to stand tall on the inside b/c He did what nothing else could.....He took my inability to live free and freed me from the inside out.
