Dancing In The Rain

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…

    Something tells me they already are (master dance instructors that is) – for all those who are graced with knowing them.
