Shades of Healing ~ Creating a Wholehearted Life

Friday Faves – What’s your miracle?

I admit I’m a sap about a lot of things, but this Youtube video probably makes even the toughest of the tough cry.  Meet Charlotte Bottger who has cerebral palsy.  Like most little girls, she has dreams of being a ballerina.  Her father raised enough money to bring Charlotte to the USA for surgery that would help her walk.  This video is Charlotte dancing with David Pickering and Sander Blommaert of The Royal Ballet at the Royal Opera House in London.  It is precious and delightful and full of inspiration, and you’ll need kleenex at the end when she says, “I’m a ballerina.”  Yes Charlotte, you are!

Charlotte’s story was featured on a TV show called ‘What would be your Miracle?’ on ITV.com.  This makes me ask, what would be your miracle?  It doesn’t have to be some big medical cure.  Miracles come in all sizes.  So I ask, what would be yours?
