This story is about a supreme being, a boy's dreams, and one of the most powerful forces on earth ... a mother's love.

Reggie Johnson's sales training program "How to Close More Customers" is available at

Helen was one lady who did not listen to  or accept the limitation of others. Her ten year old son was in a car accident and sent to the local hospital in New York City. The doctors discovered his leg was badly mangled, with his right foot barely connected by a ligament.

Upon consultation with other physicians, the emergency room doctor told Helen her son’s foot would have to be amputated immediately. She refused. They then brought her into a conference room with other surgeons and the hospital lawyer.

They explained to her the consequences if she did not have her son’s foot amputated. They assured her, recovery or use of the foot would be almost impossible and the chance of success, at best, would be minimal. Not to amputate could lead to infection and, ultimately; his death.

Helen was a thirty-five year old single working mother whose greatest love in life was her son. His name was David. Prior to the accident he had been a vibrant, intelligent little boy who wished to be, in his words: “An astronaut or fireman.”

Although she had only a limited education, she knew in that conference room, with renowned physicians; she must eloquently state her case. She rose to the occasion and explained to them her son’s hopes and dreams.

She told them she believed in a higher power and in no uncertain terms could they amputate her son’s foot. It was saved. He is now seventeen years old and plays quarterback on his school’s football team. He still looks at the sky and dreams of becoming an astronaut. If he is anything like his mother; I would not bet against  him!

It is true doctors don't have all the answers and few of them will admit it. Great story.

Reginald,bravo! "A Mother's Love" is an excellent story,and even if it is fictitious( I am not sayiny it is)its truth is very real and powerful.
I know what it means to have a mother intercede. Although my mom died last year,her love for me still compels me to do,to act courageously and confidently,as she did when ahe walked among us.

No! The odds are in HIS favor. Positive thinking is becoming a LOST art these days. We need to het our moral character back on track and stop all of this negatives news. All this negative thinking is killing us in America.

Three cheers for mothers like Helen.

If it were not for my mother, I would never have learned to read. The ‘so-called educational experts’ said (I was six or seven at the time) I was so retarded that I would never learn to read. My mother taught me at home with a coat hanger in one hand. I had dyslexia--something the ‘experts’ didn’t know about at that time.

An art teacher, Jim Ellison, at the high school where I taught for decades functioned with only one side of his brain. The other side was destroyed at bird by a virus of some kind. His mother was told that her son would never walk, talk or function. They told her he probably would never even be capable of rolling over or crawling. She refused to accept that and was relentless at teaching her son after all of the ‘experts’ had given up. Jim has a PhD along with a few other degrees and is considered one of the top 150 artists in the world. He can walk and talk-- no problems.

Dear Reginald,

An important message ... we need to be reminded that hope must never be forsaken.

Victor, this is a spectacular write!
Got me straight in the heart like an arrow.
Yes, I would say a mother's love is one of
the deepest loves on this earth.
3 cheers!!

It takes many years to become a doctor. Rushing and betting are two things that should never be associated with the treat-meant of our emotional, mental or physical well-being. A foot is attached to all three.
