Climb Every Mountain...

"Climb Every Mountain"…a song from one of my all-time favorite movies, The Sound of Music. "If the mountain won't come to Muhammad (Mahomet), Muhhammad (Mahomet) must go to the mountain...if things do not change the way you want them to, you must adjust to the way they are. Faith will move mountains...if you believe in what you are doing, you can overcome any obstacle. Move mountains…to achieve something difficult. 

Mountains make me thing of Jack. Perhaps that's why the Mount'n Mover is so perfect for him. 

The Mount'n Mover (http://www.mountnmover.com) is simply genius. It's created by BlueSky Designs, Inc. (http://blueskydesigns.us), the company that has a passion for making the impossible possible. They develop products that make it easier for people to do what they want to do—whether they have a disability, are aging, or just want to do something without hurting. We love that they're based here in Minneapolis, but they serve the world. 

The Mount'n Mover is a device that's attached to Jack's chair. It's a movable tray that is customized to fit his needs. It holds his laptop and phone at a level that allows him to operate his phone and computer without being hunched over. Prior to this, Jack would operate his laptop on, well…his lap. But that's not good, especially for someone with a neck injury. Let's just say it became a pain in the neck (yes…pun intended). A concerning pain to deal with, for sure. And his phone would sit on his thigh or on the arm of his chair. Not only did that cause pain, it would also fall on the ground. A lot. Dianne (the creator) custom-made a tray that holds the phone next to the laptop and it has a cutout for Jack's charger cord. So smart! 

It's not only wonderful to find a solution that makes an every day task much easier to navigate, it's also heart-warming to meet people like the folks at BlueSky Designs who care so much about what they do and the difference that it makes. Kudos. 

Back to the mountains…yes, life as a quad presents so many challenges. But Jack, you continue to face each and every obstacle with determination and a positive attitude. 
Keep climbing every mountain….

Climb every mountain,
Search high and low,
Follow every highway,
Every path you know.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
'Till you find your dream.

A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life 
For as long as you live.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream.

Incredible people deserve incredible things. Jack, I have followed you since your accident and amazed at what an incredible young man you have become (I am sure you always were, just didn't know anything about you before)! You have an amazing mother/family support system, and the people who are drawn to you are amazing! Please keep up the hard work. You are an inspiration to all who come in contact with you and follow your progress!

That is pretty awesome that this lady did that to help Jack. Do multi tasks while your in a wheelchair or are in pain is not an easy task.
