    Nisha, your wonderful blog appears in my “Tag Surfer” window and I skim it often but today was the day that I finally clicked on a link and looked around your site. I felt more and more inspired by you and your tenacity and your generosity. I was enjoying your gratitude list, scrolling down and thinking how nice it was that you took the time to be grateful, until I got to the end of the list, today, and saw that you wrote “I am grateful for Cerebral Palsy,” and my heart was just completely broken open wide and a lot of sorrow and joy came out. Thank you thank you thank you. You are really inspiring me.
