Testing those challenged limbs may surprise you one day.

When I was a little girl about 4, I had a folding chair. One day I opened my chair to sit in it. It was not fully hooked. I sat on it with my hand holding the seat and the chair collapsed chopping off a small piece of my index finger (pointer finger). I do no remember how long I wore a cast, all I know is when they took it off I never used my index finger again for a few years. For some reason or other my mother decided to challenge me one day when she saw me writing with the finger pointed out as usual. She asked, "Jewel, (Nickname) why don't you use that finger?" I answered, "I can't mommy." She said, "Try." So I tried. And to my amazement my finger worked. It could bend, it could write. "WOW" Mothers come up with the greatest ideas, Try!

You never know what you can do unless you try and try again.
