    Be thankful for who you are.

    My beautiful grand daughter posted this on Facebook. I knew I had to share it with all of you.

    Thank you. It should remind all that no one is perfect but some have it much harder than others. We should thank God every day for who we are. No matter what our problems there are others far worse.

    Yes, and some will have it very hard. But Thank God that my little aches & pains are so little, compared to other's, and I can live with what I have!

    That was great. It reminds us to except people for who they are not what they look like.

    Thanks for the reminder, Ditter. My problems are now in perspective. You have a wonderful granddaughter if she posts messages like that. Heartwarming.

    That was wonderful Ditter. What a wonderful thing this man did for these people. It really makes you take a good look at yourself be thankful for every positive things in our lives and not to dwell on the negatives.

    Thank you for the video link. I work in a department that includes fashion design and merchandizing students. I have sent the link on to two of the instructors. It could be used to help our students thinking beyond the "typical" and envision both advertizing and design of clothing for those who do not fit the "typical" but who are unique for all of those many reasons shown in the video.

    I've seen this before and it was just as meaningful this time as well. My petty problems are more in perspective with such reminders.

    I think it's a great video. It would have been interesting to hear the passersby's reactions, especially when the one gal was standing in front of her mannequin.

    Beautiful
    Would it be safe to assume the woman with the curved spine has scoliosis? Or do you know of any other condition that could result in the curve?
    Reason I ask:
    My daughter had titanium rods put in her back for scoliosis when she was a sophmore/junior in hs and I thought I could show her this. She has no problems with the rods, she's 28 now, that she tells me, and I just thought it would be helpful as a 'what if' conversation
    (what if no insurance, another country, parents who didn't care...)
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!
