Have you ever been with someone who has special needs?
I am not talking about the need to chat or someone who needs a hug but rather someone who has special needs such as a missing body part or mental challenge?
I have had the honor of being in the presence of such people and I am continually surprised at how they bless my day. When I pay attention I am constantly amazed at how they see the world.
The optimism and sunshine that I witness is unmatched. It also makes me wonder just how much better the world would be if we all had more of this spirit within us.
Do I wake up happy to embrace a new day? Am I filled with awe at the possibilities in front of me?
My prayer is that I can also be special and embrace the wonders around me.
Look for the beauty of the moment and enjoy the blessings of each day.
