Check out more "What I Learned" over at Musings of a Housewife.
I learned this week that I really don't have much to complain about after watching
"Little Couple". on TLC. It's a reality show about Jen and Bill a Newlywed couple who happen to be "Little people." Jen is a Doctor who takes care of premature babies and babies born with difficulties. Jen is an example of someone who has overcome adversity, but what inspires me the most is her spirit. She stays so positive! I never thought about how it would be living in this world as Little person. They have so many challenges. Her husband Bill has a big personality and at times I think he's a little sarcastic but he obviously loves and adores Jen.
In one episode they are discussing having children. Because of Jen's size it would be a huge risk for her. As they discuss the possibilities they decide it's just too risky. They will have to take another route. I'm not sure why I'm so intrigued by this show but I noticed there are several other shows about "Little People"! I honestly am not sure if I am intrigued by Little people or just this particular couple.
It really made me stop and think that there are many other people out there that have life challenges I never even thought about.
