Success is in the support
THIS week has been an eye-opener for me as I travelled across the beautiful regions.
I was amazed by the quality of the exhibitions and the level of care given to each animal at Snakes Down Under along with the intimate nature of the park itself.
No wonder Kathy Chalker visits the park often, showing it off to visitors.
Adding to the awe I felt after seeing what Ian Jenkins does, I was inspired by Rob and Sarah Cook who have definitely overcome some tough battles.
And their fighting spirits is on display with when you see what they have achieved since Rob’s helicopter crash eight years ago.
If you have the will there is a way and their story is testament of this.
He didn’t give up on life when many in his situation would have.
His family and friends stood by him and with their support he was able to do more than the imaginable.
Not only is he a strong willed and determined business man, he is a father to two little boys, who will one day look back and see what he was able to achieve and know that their own story book was crafted by the strength in the their family.
As a reporter I have met and interviewed people from all walks of life but the legacy the Cooks are leaving behind and I will take their story with me to share with those who think they have it tough.
Rob may think he isn’t doing anything special but if he could only see himself through our eyes.
