Came across this link . The responses were really interesting.

In London. The paralympics wheelchair rugby was brutal. Back tomorrow.


  1. Wow. If the struggles told in the article do not make you a little more grateful for the simplicity of your life, nothing does--It certainly did for me.

    Thanks for sharing the link. I hope all is well and you have an enjoyable day.

  2. Where do you find these links ? Some of those responses made me grateful to have such an unexciting life.
    Dora and Tweezie.

  3. Wow! A lot of really powerful responses there! What a lot of depth!

  4. i have just spent a long time in his blog. thank you for the link angus.
    we are all walking novels aren't we? it's incredible to read all of those.
    i will never feel the same in a crowd of people again. i will hear their voices
    and see their stories ... even without knowing.
    like kim said, i am grateful for the simplicity of my life. so very grateful!
    love to my lad,

  5. Read these letters of gratitude with interest, and at times sadness. Many people are grateful for bad things that have happened, because it changed them for the better. A lot of sad and weary people in the world.

  6. There are struggles and hardship in our lives so our souls can learn lessons and advance. Like death and taxes, no one is exempt. Blessed are those who recognize the value in their trials and tribulations and go on to live their lives with gratitude and love.

  7. We've been watching the Paralympics, too.

  8. Thanks for posting this link Angus, it made one stop and think. I have read each post somewhat with horror, some sadness, and some in total disbelief and understanding, but we all have our heavy loads to carry.
    That's why my blog is called:soveryverythankful, because I am truly thankful for what I do or do not have.

  9. Everyone has a story; sometimes we benefit by taking time to listen...
