Mark Fisher is an inspiration.

Let me tell you about a really cool guy I know. His name is Mark Fisher. First met Mark a couple of years ago when he was taking his first adaptive water skiing lesson after almost losing his life when he suffered an aneurism and a stroke after being in the hospital for a bacterial infection that spread through his body and went to his heart.

In the picture above you can see Mark being visited by his sister in the ICU. He was there for 4 weeks and was not expected to live. Is it any wonder his mom calls him a miracle?

This is a picture I took of Mark zipping behind a boat at about 20 mph two days ago. The changes in his mobility, flexibility and even speech in the two years since I last saw him were incredible. He works his butt off - he swims, goes to the gym, works with speech therapists two days a week, and generally does not sit still very much.
Mark inspires me. He is upbeat and always ready to smile and laugh. We need to think about Mark when some minor hassle comes our way and we get upset - as the wise man said, "Don't sweat the small stuff."
