I just received an email from one of my favorite relatives that showed photos of a young boy maybe 6-8 years old riding a horse, playing baseball, ice hockey, and field hockey, running, water skiing, and more. In each photo he has a beautiful, beaming smile.
Oh, did I forget to mention that he has no biological legs?
The email came with some captions:
Attitude is everything…
Have you ever seen a more beautiful smile than this one?
And my favorite:
“Life isn’t about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain”
Something tells me this boy and his parents could be master dance instructors…
I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.

Something tells me they already are (master dance instructors that is) – for all those who are graced with knowing them.
I read this quote in a Richard Paul Evans book entitled ” The Christmas List
