I simply have to post this!!! I found this amazing video about an amazing woman on my friend Patti’s blog today while I was killing time waiting for the construction guys to finish up. Patti is one of my frequent commenters here on It’s Just Life and a sweet lady to boot. Check out her blog A New Day Dawns here! Tell her I sent you!
But back to the video. It quite honestly brought tears to my eyes as I watched a woman who on the outside is far from beautiful by human standards due to her Neurofibromatosis which causes tumors to grow all over her body. But what an amazing woman and what an amazing smile. I could tell that she is beautiful inside and that beauty reached to my very core today as I viewed the video. I have been so blessed with good health and ordinary looks. This makes me think about that. Living with my brother in law with Down Syndrome has also opened my eyes to how others view us when we are out shopping and doing our thing. Most folks are kind and accepting but there are some who try to hide their stares and avert their eyes. I am sure I have been guilty of the same. This video makes me really want to try to change that. Let me know what you think.
