Marking the Distance
Marking the Distance will make you laugh and it will touch your heart…From time to time we all imagine physical problems that could become life changing, especially when we see others go through them. Usually, somewhere, in that process there is a moment we realize how ugly and dramatic that change actually is. I think we can all imagine losing a leg, an arm, or even the ability to walk, or move, but rarely are we able to imagine what it would be like to lose even part of our ability to think, process information, or to remember. It is when we see others go through such trauma and they are still able to exhibit grace, and humility, and a huge helping of humor, and wit that you really, truly, realize the meaning of special.
