Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

Egyptian Couple in Harmony

18 Mar 2014There is a story I found at: http://egyptianstories.blogspot.com.au/2010/09/disabled-couples-provesthere-is-hope.html that shows this amazing couple who work so well as a team. He has no arms and she has no legs but together they can do everything, ironing, vacuuming, washing. She plates his hair, he irons her clothes.

These photos are an inspiration to couples who need to work in harmony to survive.

My husband and I are the same. I make his life less chaotic for him by keeping things ordered mentally and physically and he helps me to make things happen. As individuals we are weak but together we are strong and can accomplish heaps.

One thing that sticks in my mind that symbolises how we work together is when we went to this science place that had an intrinsic puzzle. Both of us had a go and could not put the cube together. When we worked on it as a team we had it done in seconds!

A great joy to know that it how are relationship works our weaknesses make us a stronger team
