I read a couple of blogs that really bring home to me how lucky I am to live the life I have.
Jenni is quadraplegic following a car accident in 2002. She is amazing in the way she handles her life now and how much she gets on and does.
Greg is also quadraplegic following an accident in 1999. He retains a dry sense of humour and has a very philosophical outlook at times.
Karly has Rett syndrome. She has many physical limitations and cannot speak, but is able to communicate through the written word after many years of non-communication due to health professionals not believing it was possible for her. Karly may have physical difficulties but she spends her time finding ways to enrich her life, and the lives of those around her.
Have a read, I find these three people very humbling, I really don't think I could cope with their situations in the way that they do.
