It’s how you play your cards

Jonathan Swain

I’ve heard it said that it’s not important what hand you’re dealt in life, it’s how you play your cards.

According to MSNBC “by any measure, Jonathan Swain, who contracted AIDS as a baby in 1983, isn’t supposed to be here.” But this is not just a story about an AIDS baby who made it. This is a story about a very special human being who still refuses to accept that just because you’re dealt a bad hand doesn’t mean you always have to fold.

It’ll take a little time to read this story, but trust me, it’s worth the investment. I promise you’ll think a whole lot differently about the cards you are holding in your hand right now.

  1. Absolutely fantastic – heart wrenching but proves that God is always on our side. Challenges will always be there but facing up to them is the ultimate challenge.

    God Bless All.

  2. When life hands you lemons…make lemonade. The struggle of this family and courage of this mother has made a difference for others who would walk this same path. The struggles and challenges we endure so often times are our opportunities to make a difference for others even when we don’t know the outcome. We must accept the challenges so that we may feel the exhilaration of victory…

    Love & Belief.

  3. Truly amazing! How completely inspiring! Can you imagine what this world could be like if people would live their life whether threatened or not, like there is no tomorrow! This has definitely given me the thought to hold my loved ones a little closer this evening, to tell mine how much I love them, and to treasure even the disagreements with a whole new insight. Thank you Jon for sharing your life with us!
