i'm verklempt!

life is hard sometimes, and, as my best friend would always tell me, when life hands you crap, make a crap sandwich.

how about making that crap into a crème brulée? that sounds way better.

i woke up this morning feeling crapped out & thinking to myself, "life's hard." and i prayed that today, instead of focusing on the stresses of life, i'd focus on my blessings, the many, many things i can be grateful for. and as i was checking my email at work this morning, i came across this story:

Limbless boy says 'anything's possible'

i read it, felt inspired, and then i watched the video and flat out cried. now if that's not making crap into crème brulée, i don't know what is. i feel realigned now, grateful, ashamed, and determined to try to turn my own crap (which, let's my honest, is absolutely nothing compared to this boy's challenges) into...well, let's start out with a subway sandwich. and i'll work my way up to crème brulée.

thanks, nick, for being my hero today.

  1. Ahh yes, the old "I cried because I had no shoes, but then I saw a man who had no feet." Always a good reminder. Walking the streets in Las Vegas has had the same effect on me. There are reminders everywhere here that my life is charmed. Not to mention non-pornographic.
