Meet The Inspiring Mother-of-two Without Arms Who Text, Drives,Cooks, Applies make-up With Her Feet

This is so inspirational and it is worth publishing on my blog. Many people still have their both hands and legs complete but yet feel depressed and downcast. Imagine if God makes switches of them with these people, what will then become of them?.
This 37-year-old Barbie Thomas who is a body builder and mother of two boys lost her arms in an electrical accident.
She climbed onto an electrical transformer and grabbed the wires. The electricity entered her hands and surged through her body - scorching her arms down to the bone and turning them into something 'like charcoal' but that hasn't stopped her from pursuing her bodybuilding dream.

She said:
'I'd say to anyone, you can do whatever you put your mind to. 'The only limitations are the ones you put on yourself. Everyone has limitations and handicaps in some way or another - mine are more visible than yours maybe.
Thomas says she can do anything an average person can do - except she uses her feet. That includes brushing her teeth, making dinner, taking milk out of the fridge, texting, shopping, putting on makeup and even driving.
The single mom - who has been married three times - began bodybuilding back in 2003. At first she was skeptical of joining fitness competition because of her handicapped stage but later made up her mind after talking with the  locale chairperson who gave her a green light to join.
 Although she  never won but she came 5th position out of 6th competitors in 2012.  Her workouts vary each day from cardio and abs to stretching and track work.
 When not competing, Thomas loves doing the things a normal mom would do and enjoys looking after her two sons.
