Seeing life through the eyes of others . . .

is a wonderful blessing.

I have mentioned the blog Terrible Palsy before, and why I really love it. Her writing is fantastic, and I love reading about the way she and her family (including one son, "Moo", who has cerebral palsy) go through life together.

The August 12th post, "Close of the Curtain" is something that I think everybody should read. It is an especially touching post and brought tears to my eyes. Tolerance, empathy and understanding should be the standard, not the exception.

I think the blog title is great, however I dread the day that I am tired and the words "terrible palsy" slip out when I mean to say "cerebral palsy"!!

No worries - it has really opened my eyes in some ways. There are other excellent blogs out there along the same theme, but the adventures of Moo and his family are my favourite.

I had a bit of time off in July, but now I'm back with a vengeance! :)
