Rollin' to a Miracle

Dutch paralympic athlete Monique van der Vorst, 27, has been paralyzed from the waist down since she was 13. She won two silver medals for hand-cycling at the 2008 Paralympic Games.

Last year she regained sensation in her legs after a crash during training.

Since then she has trained on an ordinary bicycle and last week won a place on a professional cycling team. Her goal is to compete in the Olympic Games in 2016.

She said, “In sport, everything is possible.”

When all we hear in news is the bad stuff I thought you might like evidence that miracles do happen.

Here’s what I got from this story. Monique wasn’t sittin’ at home praying that something good would happen. She had accepted her reality and was doing the best she could with what she had…and something good happened.

You go, Monique!!

What have you given up on?

Keep rollin’ around. You never know where you’ll find your miracle.
