There is Nothing Wrong With You

Below is a follow-up correspondence from Brad whose story appears on my blog yesterday:

Robert Rodgers, Ph.D.
Parkinsons Recovery

I got “PD’ed” at church today.  I was a visitor and had no sooner entered than I was greeted by a young man with very obvious Down Syndrome.  He instantly spotted my shaking hand and said with a big smile,

“Don’t worry, you don’t have to be nervous, it’s only Ash Wednesday.  Or perhaps you’re very excited because you have such a beautiful wife!”

From his perspective there was absolutely nothing “wrong” with me; to the contrary everything was “right” with me.  My partner and I agreed that there was a profound lesson to be learned from this man’s innocent and perceptive observation.
