My observation. Life is too short to wallow in self-pity. Back home in Oklahoma there was a sign that said, I felt sorry because I had no shoes until I met a man with no feet! Sure, I wear a patch, but I’m not blind. I limp somewhat especially when I’m tired, but I am not confined to a wheel-chair. I talk in a slurred, but at least I’m not mute! I’m ALIVE!!!
