There are times in life when we ask, “Why did this have to happen to me? Why did this have to happen to the person I love? Why does life have to be so difficult?” There are people who seem to live their lives free of problems. Then there are times when we come across people who have had terrible things happen and they remain upbeat.
Even more than that, we come across people who seem to relish in learning how to do things in new ways. They have an energy and positivity that is infectious. They offer each and every one of us lessons about the strength we have within.
Such is the case with a youngster named Kayden Elijah Kinckle who was born with omphalocele which is a type of hernia that can cause organs to grow outside of the body. In Kayden’s case, according to his mother’s Facebook post, Kayden’s intestine and abdominal organs formed on the outside of his navel.
In addition, Kayden’s legs and feet were trapped under his mother’s pelvis which caused his bones to become deformed. According to his mother, the doctors said that he wouldn’t survive and suggested that she terminate her pregnancy. Thankfully his mother didn’t listen. The youngster did survive and has been healthy enough to have corrective surgeries that included the amputation of his right foot and his left leg.
Kayden Elijah Kinckle proclaims,”I got it. I got it. I got it”
If you are feeling sorry for yourself and need a “pick me up” or a “kick in the pants “ this video might be exactly what the doctor ordered.
If you are so busy that you can’t watch the entire 1 minute 55 second video, do yourself a favor and watch it from the 1 minute point when Kayden exclaims, “I got it. I got it. I got it.”
His delight is infectious. Maybe you will catch a bit of his positivity! I sure did.
