Frankie


Recently I was moved by the courage and determination of one man. A man known as Frankie.

Many years ago I was in the position of needing the faith and fortitude to walk again after suffering a serious burns accident so I understand what this man went through at the time of his accident. Except that my experience was not half as bad and the after effects not nearly so traumatic.

I know many friends will have read about him on Ron's blog but there are others who won't have had the opportunity. Please accept Ron's invitation to read his interview with Frankie. It does the heart good to hear of people like him who had the resolve to overcome major difficulties and come out smiling. Here's the link again, it's well worth a visit Ron's Blog

Valerie, my dear friend....thank you SO MUCH for sharing Frankie's interview!

" It does the heart good to hear of people like him who had the resolve to overcome major difficulties and come out smiling."

You're so right. And I can honestly say that after meeting him, I've changed somehow. Everyone who meets Frankie, whether online or offline is truly inspired.

Thanks again, Valerie!

((((( You )))))

Have a super weekend!

Hi, Ron. I like Frankie's smile... as well as his style. It must be good to know him in real life. Thank you for sharing him with us.

Pearl, I guessed you would have seen Ron's post.

I have indeed had the pleasure of reading about Frankie on Ron's blog, and I also watched the 'day in the life' video he made. What an amazing guy he is!! A true inspiration.

Wow. Thanks Val for sharing. He is an inspiring person and great to hear how positive he is. My sister is paralyzed and has taken quite the opposite approach to life that Frankie has. Have a good weekend.
