Optimist

Six years old Grandson,  whose both feet had been amputated,  when he was four had long back accepted his disability and tried to be always happy lest grandma becomes sad, suddenly requested his grandma-‘ I want shoes! ‘
Grandma, who was taking him for a ride on his wheelchair,  looked sadly at him.
‘ Don’t look so sad dear, I want them for my best friend, he cannot buy shoes and cannot play without them,’ said he.
Grandma lovingly showered blessings on him.
He laughed ‘ One day, with your blessings  I am going to climb Mount Everest like ‘Tom Whitekar‘ and ‘Arunima Sinha. .

( Tom Whittaker (born 1948 in York) was the first disabled person to climb to the summit of Mount Everest.[1]

Whittaker’s right foot needed to be amputated following a car accident in 1979. Following this serious accident, he regained his strength and continued climbing.

Arunima “Sonu” Sinha (born 1988) is the first female amputee to climb Mount Everest.[1] She is also the first Indian amputee to climb Mount Everest.[2][3]

She was a national level volleyball player who was pushed out of a running train by thieves in 2011 while resisting them. One of her legs had to be amputated below the knee as a result.

Bob’s Challenge: Frameble Keepers.

The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects

it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.
