Life can test us in many different ways.
But our ATTITUDE makes the difference in our acceptance of these tests.
About a year ago a friend Tony has his leg off above the knee.
He faced the whole experience with humour and never complained on the huge adjustment this required in his life.
On a recent visit he quietly reached forward and suddenly re-adjusted his leg.
He termed this…..”an ice breaker.”
Tony has a website at http://www.tonyprance.com/index.html

I admire that man so much – his courage and humour…
So do I John
Absolutely right and I am amazed by people who can accept the test or temptation with a great sincere attitude. Thank you for sharing this simply touching post. muhammads
Muhammads I told him he would inspire people all over the world. He laughed and said “no way.” Well it is happening here and the numbers do not matter. if we make a difference in just one person’s life that is good. Best wishes, Robert
I hardly believe how unpretentious he is. Salute ! Thanks for a great post about thing in life that we should follow like his acceptance. Best wishes to you and Tony as well.
Unpretentious, humble, humorous, creative….etc., etc.
Another funny comment of his was…….”I managed to cut the grass the other day without one grass stain on my pants.” He lives on a steep slope and did not fall over once….that is courage and determination too. Thanks Muhammads
