Perseverance Thy Name Is Vinnie

Sit right down and let me tell you a story about a special little guy. His name is Vinnie, and he's pictured above with his best friend Lexi - from the previous story. His story is one that will - hopefully - inspire you.

Vinnie was born with only the top section of his back legs. He has just a small section of the lower bones below his knees, making it VERY painful for him to get around. It is so painful because the little bones that he has to walk on eventually work their way thru his skin!!!

But look at this face. he is the happiest cat in the world. He doesn't give up, and is always purring and playing. Just not walking on his back legs whenever possible. There's a lesson to be learned there somewhere. no matter how painful his world can be... he's still to be a lover, still to be a normal kitty, still to give all the things a kitty can give.

Moral to the story: life can give you difficulties, but its how you overcome those difficulties that makes the difference.
