Day 2585: What Happened? Curiosity and An Opportunity

May we all be as honest as children– that’s my hope for the world.

 

It’s 11: 15  AM on day 2585 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read  Daniel 7:13-14 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – A HUGE thanks to Shajan uncle and Lissy aunty who donated $50 which brings the total raised to  $4 337 only $8 163 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot.

 

Recently I was somewhere and this little boy came up to me and asked what happened? (referring to me being on a wheelchair) I almost burst out laughing I loved the child’s honesty and the ease with which he asked the question my mom told me to ignore him I ignored her and replied I was born this way it’s cool to be different to which he said oh and walked away (I didn’t explain my medical condition because I thought he was a little too young to understand but it was important that I use that moment to teach him that there’s beauty in diversity).   

Day 1949: Be the curious cat

Strive to learn something new every day – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 12: 22 PM on day 1949 of my journey towards independence and I managed to  have breakfast, pray, read Galatians 2, learn one new thing –While they might be bright red when they hit your dinner plate, crabs and lobsters are usually brown, olive-green or gray when alive and in the wild (at least in the mid-Atlantic U.S.; crustaceans farther south come in a variety of vibrant colors).–  and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign –  yesterday Catherine Cook donated $25 and today @Maewmb donated $15  (thanks SO MUCH  Catherine and @Maewmb your support means the world to me really :) )  which brings my total raised to $755 only $5 495 more to raise in 360 days (SO HAPPY :)).

 

Today I was thinking about the old saying curiosity killed the cat sure the cat died but I’m betting that said cat knew more before it died than all the other cats sitting in the corner would ever know their entire lives… be the curious cat dare to learn and grow and live fully.
