Beautiful Moment

Took the babies to breakfast on Friday with my morning walking buddies. It's always a production when I walk in somewhere with two car seats, etc. (eventually, I'm going to hire an emcee and spotlight operator to announce our grand entrances).

On this particular day, a woman getting ready to leave offered to help get the babies situated. She admired the twins and asked if it was challenging with two little ones (yes, Stranger Lady, you have no idea).

As she got ready to walk out the door, she touched my shoulder, leaned down and quietly said 'You are only given as much as you can handle'. Then she walked (or rather limped) out the door.

It was then I noticed she was wearing a prosthetic leg. Apparently one of her legs had been amputated from the knee down . . . maybe she does have an idea of life's challenges (yes, Angel Lady, you have a profound idea).

There's a great quote that goes something along the lines of "Be kinder than necessary, for everyone is fighting a battle... some are more easily seen than others." I like it.
