The Christmas Party tour this year was very fun. Every party was great and I have plenty of pictures from each of the events. I thought it was going to be really hard to choose a favorite picture to display on the blog until I saw this one.
This picture comes to you directly from the Phoenix Christmas party which was held on December 19th. You are probably thinking, what is so special about this picture? You are standing there laughing with Jane, so what? At first glance I would tend to agree but when I was looking at this picture I made the following startling observation:
I love this photo because one rarely gets to see what they would look like with a major deformity, for instance the loss of a limb. In this photo, which I have entitled, "Jane the Flamingo" she does a fabulous job of demonstrating that it is possible to still look good even if you have lost one of your legs in a tragic accident or mishap. Even with a missing limb she is not afraid to put on that short skirt, get out on the dance floor and have fun at parties.
Jane, your courage and positive attitude makes you a role model for amputees everywhere. You can hear more about Jane's story and see her one-legged navigation around Phoenix in the Premiere episode of the new TLC drama: "Life with Missing Limbs". (Premiers January 25th)
