Childhood Memory

As I sat in my little fishing chair with my eyes fixed on my little red and white fishing bobber, I notice everyone around me was catching fish! George, a friend of the family, shouted, “Robby, go find me a stick!” So I jumped up and started my search for that perfect and right stick. I walked and walked all over the bank of the lake when I heard, “Robby, YOU GOT ONE-YOU GOT ONE!” So I ran as fast as my little cripple legs would allow me to. I picked up my reel-less pole and started running up the bank to catch my first fish of the day! Years later, I was talking to my mom about that fishing trip, and then she filled me in with the true story, “Do you know George put that fish on your line?” I replied, “NOOOOO!” The moral of the story, Sometimes in life there is someone working behind the scene that is pulling the strings to put a smile on your face!

When A Smile Hands You The Answer!!!

It seems life will hand you the same problem to work through over and over until you realize it’s time to have fun with the problem! A few years ago I was walking through Target with a buddy of mine when I noticed these young kids out of the corner of my eye mocking the way I walk! So we continued walking and got what we needed to get. As we were standing in line waiting, I noticed these same kids were behind us! I guess a little of my dad came out in me that day, because I said with a smile, “I like the way you walk!” As my buddy and I were walking out to the car, my buddy turns to me and says “I liked the way you handled that!” Being positive through Grace will always help you solve life’s little problems!

Don’t Let Society Labels Define You!!!

I’m not a fan of the label Special Needs. Why you ask? Because it’s kinda like judging a book by it’s cover, thinking you already know the story line of the book. Sometimes the cover can be misleading and it doesn’t do the story line justice. I’m a guy with Cerebral Palsy and I really don’t need a Politically Correct label placed on my life. Sure I have had many challenges throughout my life and I’m grateful for each one of them. I’m also grateful for each helping hand that has touched my life. I find the label Special Needs degrading, so when you describe Rob, He’s a guy with Cerebral Palsy… Please no Political Correctness is needed to describe me.
