What if you were born without eyes or the ability to straighten your legs and walk? How would you describe your disabilities?

Well, if you were Patrick Hughes, you’d say, “Not disabilities at all. More … ability.”

He began playing the piano by ear before his first birthday and was taking requests by his 2nd. To see the rest of his journey, click here. (Caution: tissues may be necessary)

Did you hear what his dad said? “We’re not going to play baseball, but we’re going to play music together … Let’s see how far we can run with this.”

Then Patrick said, “God made me blind and unable to walk. Big deal. He gave me musical abilities and the opportunity to meet new people.”

Sense a common attitude? Instead of focusing on what he cannot do, they chose to focus on what he can do.

And that amazing attitude has made all the difference as Patrick continues to play the music of possibilities.
