I had this experience flying home from a speaking event 3 years ago. It came up in my Facebook memories and I wanted to share it with you. Have you had moments that remind you about the bigger picture? – Michelle
I am at a loss for words and an abundance of tears. A series of divine events had me seated next to two teens with prosthetic legs on my flight tonight. The boy next to me immediately started up a conversation. These “make it happen” kids are friendly, fun, and cute. We chatted for five minutes before I noticed. They told me their stories, that they both want to go into prosthetics when they grow up and that they were in Utah for a white water rafting trip with 16 other kids from all across the country. I did a very good job of holding back my tears for these sweet kids. They showed me their craft activities they did and this one particularly touched me. They ARE magic and so was the experience sitting next to them. God is good to me on delayed flights.
That day I was on the best seller list with Tony Robbins and Mel Robbins (in one of the toughest categories on Amazon). Truth be told my paperback beat Tony’s paperback, he could only beat me with his audible, kindle and hardback. 😉
Long term, my book stayed on the Hot New Releases list for 4 weeks and I celebrate and honor every day.
Like any big project, this is a team effort that is far from over. I’m grateful for the crowds of people who helped me Make It Happen.
