    No Arms, No Problem

    Inspirational videos worth a look. When we wonder how we are going to do things, this girl shows us how its done.

    She defines the word adaptability and does it with a smile.....

    One of my best friends Jim was born missing his leg. He just did multiple lumbar laminectomies for stenosis yesterday for his crippling sciatica....(Non-scoliosis) But I'm not worried about him, he taught me most of everything I know about hitting emotional rock bottom, and recovering from this no matter what happens to us.....

    These videos are reminders that with all we go through, there is always a way. From putting shoes on post scoliosis surgery, to changing tires with no arms.

    There is always a way, and something to be learned about obstacles and emotional challenges that become part of our lives, only to be handled by faith and a belief that we can overcome in time. Holding our heads up is also helpful.

    In the tire change vid, the other girl with her wooden leg jokes about losing it by having a car fall on it. These girls have such a good sense of humor! (smiley face)
