We were out skiing the other day and saw a sight that blew our minds.
We saw a lady who looked like she might be in her 60s making her way down the slope with a big sign on her bib – “Visually Impaired Skier.” She had a guide ahead of her who was telling her to turn/step, etc. That process was far from perfect of course. She had to make a couple of ungainly stops where she nearly lost her balance.
And yet, she stuck with it.
We assumed she had limited vision… until we heard a conversation with her guide. She was asking the guide where the gondola was, the ski lift was, etc. That blew our minds again.
Spirit is such a powerful thing. When there is a will, there is a way.
