Something from Nothing

Time and again we see ourselves from the side of our shortcomings and our lack of whatever we envy in others, and then lose the joy of living our lives to the fullest. Rather than spreading joy we sow negative attitudes. But look at what I share below. Maybe the singer in her growing years discover she lack what normal people possess - arms and legs. Maybe she discover she can't walk, can't groom herself without assistance. But she discovered friendship and she discovered her singing talents. And she glow herself in what she has and can do to show the world she is more normal than many of us are. Watch her growing years and realize that her life is owed to her parents who chose NOT to abandon her but gave her life, support and opportunities. In developing a disabled child they have had their lives enriched and transformed. We often fail to appreciate what we have until we lose it. Then again, those who don't have develop skills from what they lack. Isn't it amazing? Isn't life a paradox?
