Letters From Leton: What Can’t You Do This Week?

Vacations give you a different perspective. They take you out of the normal – physically and otherwise.

I have a few stories that I will share during the coming weeks, but I want to start with one that inspired me as I did my morning walks.

One morning, I saw a man being rolled out in his wheelchair. It appeared to me that he had MS (similar to the famous physicists Stephen Hawking among others).

As I walked on, I didn’t think much more about the man and the helpers who were taking him outside – that is, until he passed me on his 3-wheel bike!

At first I was confused. Was this the same fellow I had just seen in the wheel chair?

I realized it was.

I don’t know the man’s story, where he came from, nor what affliction he has.

What I do know is that he has the constitution to not quit. To get his bike ride on.

As you go through the week with challenges, hectic days, work demands, I hope you will take a minute to think about this man and consider, “What Can’t YOU Do this Week?”.

I hope the answer that comes to mind is, “There is nothing I can’t do this week!”
