This is a quote from the recent Esquire interview with Roger Ebert. He's spent the better part of his life reviewing movies. He's spent most of the last decade battling aggressive thyroid cancer--he's lost most of his jaw, and his ability to eat and speak. Yet, his attitude is one of hope and gratitude and even humor. This is great perspective. Read the whole thing if you have time. Its worth it. The Lord gives us talents, and he will find a way for us to use them to bless people, even in our trials.
