Calamity Kris Posted March 2 Share Posted March 2 (edited) I saw a real hero today, although I don't think she views herself as one. I walked out of Target this afternoon when I came across a young mother and her daughter in the parking lot. The little girl couldn't have been more than 6. She had some spunk and was bouncing around like any excited little girl does, except she was a little different. I noticed her gait was not quite the same as a child her age. She was wearing shorts and you could clearly see she had a prosthetic leg from the thigh down. Her mother opened the back door of their SUV and she happily said, "I've got this mommie" and climbed into the back seat, then hopped up into her booster seat. She has apparently been doing this for a while. Her mother buckled her in, patted her on the head and closed her safely in. No that little one doesn't wear a cape or have super powers but she's a hero in my book. To be handed a rough hand in the card game of life and still be able to bounce around as though nothing were different takes more guts than many adults I know. God bless that little girl and I wish her only the best for the rest of her life. She could be a real example to a number of folks on how to handle themselves with grace and spunk when adversity strikes.
