The love we are capable of

I found this video on facebook. Amazing!

The love we feel for our loved one’s cannot be measured by words or numbers.  And sometimes it goes beyond what some individual are capable of feeling, this is the love of a parent for a child. It is the type of love that can see through anything and a disability is no challenge for it.

While some of our loved ones may not have the capability to do things that they physically desire it does not mean they are not able to enjoy it with the help and love of another. It is as much their accomplishment as it is the person who gave this gift of love.

I always say we can change the world with one person at a time, it is because of people like this that I will continue to belive that. LOVE is a powerful tool, do not ever underestimate it.

**A Son asked his father, “Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?” The father who, despite having a heart condition, says “Yes”. They went on to complete the marathon together. Father and son went on to join other marathons. The father always saying “Yes” to his son’s request of going through the race together. One day, the son asked his father, “Dad, let’s join the Ironman together.”

To which, his father said “Yes”.For those who don’t know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island.Father and son went on to complete the race together!
