I just saw the episode on Oprah of this woman who had to have her arms and legs amputated after an infection took over her body. Her attitude moved me to tears when I saw that what kept her together was her focus on her family. She had just given birth to a daughter and wanted to go home after rehabiliation and give her newborn daughter the attention she needed.
These kind of stories make you pause and value what is really real and important in life. What a real hero she is. It is beyond words.
