It’s Alive – Never Say Never!!

Incredible, awesome, extraordinary, beyond belief, etc., etc., etc. These are some of the adjectives that come to mind when I experience a brand new physical ability!!

It teaches me to always “Keep Hope Alive!”! Past performance (or lack thereof) is NO indication of future results. Because you can do ANYTHING with the will of Hashem!!

One afternoon last week I wasn’t feeling up to pounding away at the cycling machine – I only did about five minutes. Instead, my physiotherapist pulled and stretched my arms and wrists (old school stuff).

Suddenly, and quite by “accident”, I noticed that I was able to wiggle my pointer on my right hand!

As if that wasn’t enough, I started to lift and close my wrist!!

Watch the Video – It Moves!!

All of this wouldn’t have taken place had I worked on cycling as “usual”!


I Think Not!! Because nothing happens to us randomly or unintentionally – everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, has a time and place.

And we must always pray that the time and place are suitable for the most success!
