Putting Life in Perspective…

I have always been fascinated over the achievements of Helen Keller.  I saw the movie of her life as a young boy and several times since.  Her story caused me to think hard about so many things and enlighten me on various truths.  Some truths I remember immediately when I think of Helen Keller:

1.  I am grateful for so many things.

2.  Accomplishments come from perseverance.

3.  Most obstacles we see are really not there and only living in our minds.

4.  We can have profound affects on the lives of others.

5.  Problems we see as big are in truth small as compared to what others have faced.
