Have you ever been told you can’t do a thing?
We have all heard it before. Some of us may even believe it. I don’t. I will tell you why. I know this special young lady. I actually call her “My Angel”. Her name is Megan and she is the inspiration behind this book and for me to make her biggest dream to come true. Sometimes when you see a deep driving desire in someone, especially someone you love, you feel empowered to help it become.
Some may call her stubborn others may call her determined and yet others more will say she is stubbornly deteremined. As long as I can remember whenever someone might tell her she can’t do some thing she somehow proves that statement wrong and show’s them otherwise.
What can I tell you? I was told she wouldn’t survive, she wouldn’t know she was alive, then I was told she wouldn’t crawl, wouldn’t walk, wouldn’t talk, wouldn’t be able to go to school, I know Megan has a totally different agenda. So when she says she is a writer…I don’t doubt it. Neither will you.
She shows me, each and every day…You can be anything you want to be.
“I told you I always wanted to be a writer”, she said.
Don’t let her small physical stature fool you. Being 4’4″ isn’t all that bad, besides when you are born 9 inches long and weighing only 885 grams (31 ounces) it is quite an accomplishment to stand that tall after 21 years. If you can get past what your eyes preceives to see you will realize you are in the midst of a Giant!
How else can you explain Megan’s vision to write? She defies our own limitations that we may place on her or expect of her. Even her teachers, her friends and some family…maybe even I, doubted her. But now not for much longer. Over and over again when Megan was quite young I would ask her, “What are you doing?”
“Writing my book,” she would quickly reply.
“Oh, I see.” replied I. “Shouldn’t you learn how to print, spell and learn words first?”
“That doesn’t matter, I have to write my book.” Megan replied as a matter of a fact.
” So you think you are going to be a writer….” I continued.
“I already are.” she snorted.
Take a look at the world, see the world that she sees through her eyes of what a beautiful world this is and maybe you will understand what this life is all about.
