Stool Mama

I saw this on TV couple weeks ago, its quite inspiring. So I googled it and share to you guys. Sorry can't find the vid from Youtube, so images would do.

Stool Mama
"The 55-year-old Xu, losing her legs in an accident three decades ago, devotes herself to raising the children in the social welfare institute that sheltered her. In the past 37 years, Xu has raised over 130 children, who love to call her "Stool Mama" for the way she walks. She never regrets her decision, saying it is only her duty and pleasure to look after these children"


I think we can learn from her, don't you think? Even though she lost her legs, she show compassion that I'm afraid many people who perfectly healthy lacking of.
We should be grateful with our life, no matter how bitter it is now (or was). Just keep going and keep show love to other, in any capacity you able to.
Today's world become such a graceless age, your love and kindness would make difference, a little maybe, but still count.
Thank you for read this and give some thought :)
