(Nearing the End) My View #199 - Blind Courage

Dear Readers around the world,

This post is the last my mother wrote. As we approach the anniversary of her death on December 24th, I have reserved three Christmas stories she wrote for the last three days of this blog. I hope you will enjoy them and share them with your friends. 

BLIND COURAGE

Never in my long life, have I ever seen such a display of sporting courage. In all of the country, to learn we have hockey teams of lads who are partially or totally blind. Yesterday I watched them play, and I was so shocked. I can still hardly believe it. What courage, rage, and tenacity must have seeped into their souls, to drive them, plus a wonderful, very special coach. They all looked so happy, in the rough and tumble game of hockey. I prayed for them, right then, for giving me so much pleasure. Next day I am still so happy for them, and their new joy in life, playing hockey. God bless.

Hi Linda and Art - I think this is one of the best things I ever wrote about. What do you think?

I am not in great shape anymore, always wanting to lie down. What a lazy life I lead. I love you both, have a happy life dears.
