I don’t know how else to explain it besides…Shane is Shane…His silly humor and positive attitude…His determined heart and strong will…Nothing has changed about him besides his physical setback, although I really hate to call it a setback. If anything, this experience has opened his heart and mind to being so incredibly humble. He has a whole new appreciation of life that many of us seem to overlook because we get caught up in our own ideas of reality and take for granted the little things we utilize and do everyday. Many of you knew Shane and knew how fearless he was of life. He wouldn’t think twice about trying anything that was considered “dangerous” and he has always lived his life on the edge taking risks because he loved the feeling of being on that side of the fence. Check out this video and you will see exactly what I am referring to… http://youtu.be/gobV38iZ8_M …I truly feel the strength of life’s grasp to seize you and get the best of you is strongly tangible no matter what age you have reached or what extent of wisdom you have acquired along the way. We all need humbling throughout our lives to snatch us from the fast speeds we have became accustomed to traveling and bring us back down to the speed that is safe and patient, because life is so very precious. Shane is in a very good place mentally and isn’t letting anything get in his way of success. Today, I surprised him with a football to play catch and throw outside, his face lit up like you wouldn’t believe. Something so simple brought so much joy because theoretically this was the first time he perceived this symbol of physical capability as something to be so grateful for. We were outside for about an hour enjoying the weather and activity and it was so amazing to feel his appreciation for it. It seems as though everyday he learns something new and conquers each challenge with determination. Thank you all for being so great.
