A Lil’ Inspiration #10 Mel

A Matter Of Choice

Facebook Mel 2.3.16Today’s quote is an important reminder on perspective. I have a friend who’s endured one critical issue after another since the beginning of the year.

With the loss of two pets, several medical procedures, constant pain, family illnesses, adverse reactions to medications, and two heart-rending diagnoses within the last week, my friend has had her share of tough times. If all of this weren’t enough—having lost her eyesight several years ago due to life-saving cancer treatments—she holds on with two toddlers in tow and all while working.

There is no doubt that being blind has huge challenges but we do have control over how we choose to think about our circumstances. ~Mel Scott | BlindAlive

I know if she had her choice my friend would opt for a much-needed break because she said as much in a recent Facebook post. While my heart breaks for her I see someone who has refused to let these tough life’s situations defeat her and she has done so with honesty, grace, strength, and a remarkable sense of humor.

While it’s true that things are easier said that done I want my friend to remember that she is a fighter, she’s not alone and she is still STANDING! I love you girl!
