Everyone has a Story

If you get to know me, you'll know that I love watching the Today show. That's pretty much my source of information. Actually, let me rephrase that. I have to read the New York Times for the Baylor Interdisciplinary Core, but my preferred source of information is definitely the Today show. I can watch it while doing a treatment, getting ready in the morning, or running while at the gym. So, basically, I watch it pretty often. Anyway, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb (who are on the Today show in the last hour) have a mini-series called "Everyone has a Story." On Thursday, Kathie Lee and Hoda highlighted Kaitlyn Slomski in this series, a young woman with epilepsy. I won't go into details with her story so you can watch it for yourself, but I think that many people with CF can relate to her story and the song that the Today show honored her with. Here's a link to the clip:

How true that series title is! "Everyone has a story." We people with CF know this to be true. We may look perfectly healthy from the outside, but inside, we are fighting a dreary, difficult battle for our lives. And no one would know unless they ask about our life story or we volunteer the information. Just so, people you and I pass on a daily basis have such a unique story that you don't know or understand until you ask! So life lesson for the day? Don't judge a book by its cover. Get to know people. Ask questions. Show your interest in learning about a person's life. And most importantly, remember that everyone has a unique, beautifully woven story!
