Everyday People: Read Deborah’s Story

Last month I introduced you to Chris Taylor who has Lou Gehrig’s Disease, but it doesn’t have him. A reader, Deborah, left Chris a comment and shared her own story of triumph.  So today is Monday, and Deborah is my pick for Everyday People Doing Amazing Things. 

She writes…

"Hey Chris, I so relate to your story…I grew up with nobody understanding what had happened to me. I was burned at three years old and therefore picked on relentlessly. But I pushed through and stayed focused on the things that I loved. I grew up to be a model on fitness magazines. I am now back to being real, but knowing I could be what I wanted, regardless of what people thought was a huge accomplishment and a big freedom in my heart. I am no longer all that, but I love myself more then I ever have. I get that my disabilities are my biggest strength. I love your story and feel encouraged and strengthened by your drive. Thank you for being an inspiration to all of us who are challenged. You rock…. Love Deborah"  Read Chris’s response, here.
