My job isn't boring. There's always something to do. I've seen my fair share of broken ankles, knees, etc.. You kind of get de-sensitized to everything. Until today.      

       While I was waiting in line at the Starbucks at Renown, there was a guy about my age pushing a guy about my age in a wheelchair. I didn't think anything of it until he got wheeled to the other side of the coffee bar to wait for the drinks. He had his left leg had been very recently amputated at the knee. The barista walked from behind the counter and personally handed him his drink. At this point, he began to cry.

       At that moment, I was wishing that there were something I could do for him. I can't even imagine all the bombarding thoughts that are going through his mind right now. All of those discouraging thoughts and thinking of steps 1-100 all at the same time can be depressing.  As his friend wheeled him out, he stopped to give him a hug. While I was too afraid to say anything, I know that one day, he will walk again. A friend of mine, Chris Ridgway is proof of that. Its going to take a lot of time, effort, emotions and strength but it will all work out in the end. Never dream of a perfect result; you'll be let down every time.

       When life gives you lemons, make grape juice.. not lemonade. Lemonade is the easy way out. Making grape juice is going to have more challenges, but in the end, you'll be grateful and stronger for it.

Hey! :)

Wow, it's been a long time since I've been here. (Minus the journal entry yesterday). And then, I notice that I have a comment on my page from you.

How have you been, Josh? It's been awhile since I've talked to you (or anyone else on dA)...

And I'm guessing that Happy Birthday wishes are in order. So hope you have a good day too. :D

:iconcarameldansenplz: :icondweebdanceplz: I wish you the best today :icondweebdanceplz: :iconcarameldansenplz:

Instead of counting candles,
Or tallying the years,
Contemplate your blessings,
As your birthday nears.

Consider special people
Who love you, and who care,
And others who’ve enriched your life
Just by being there.

Think about the memories
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are.

Another year is a happy gift,
So cut your cake, and say,
"Instead of counting birthdays,
I count blessings every day!"
