What My Nephews Disability taught Me

The world tells my nephew he has a disability, but after getting to witness him marry his bride this weekend-I actually think those of us who live without a labeled disability are the ones with a disability. We live with such limited beliefs, constantly caring what the world thinks of us, obsessed with our looks, or focused on the next level of success. We are the ones missing out, not my nephew with Down Syndrome. He is present at every moment, constantly happy with a smile on his face, wears whatever he feels like, never judges others and full of love. I’m in tears this morning asking Jesus to help me live like my nephew with a so called disability. Thank you Michael and Jessica Sharkey for being my teachers this weekend!! By the way as I was leaving this weekend he asked for this big hug. ❤️#downsyndrome
