I think a little inspiration was needed this morning, and I found mine in this.
I came across this story on mashable.com and it just made me so happy.

The courage of this mom.
The kindness of her son and his friends.
The happiness I felt seeing her succeed.

Great start to the day.

Pascale Honore’s mobility was mostly confined to a wheelchair after a car accident left her unable to use her legs.

But the 50-year-old mother from Australia has found a unique way of catching waves — by duct-taping herself to her son’s friend, surfer Tyron Swan.

“Both my sons surf, so I always have gone along to watch and I’ve always loved the water,” she said in a video posted to Vimeo. “I was always talking about how good it would be to go surfing and one day, a friend of my son said ‘You know what? I think we could tape you onto my back and take you out there.’”

Is really is wonderful, click here to watch the video
