*IMAGINE YOU ARE AT A PARTY....*
*YOU'VE BEEN DRINKING......*
*(not that you would...)*
*AND THEN YOU HAVE TO VISIT THE BATHROOM.... *
*You open the door.... *
*THE FLOOR IS JUST*
*A PAINTED FLOOR!*
* KINDA TAKES YOUR BREATH AWAY.....*
This would mess your mind up!
It has been over a year now since I started blogging and it’s pretty amazing how many new blogs have come along. Some are really terrific and unfortunately don’t have the volume or the applause they deserve. Overall, I think the best part about blogging is getting to see a situation from the “inside out” versus the “outside in”. Having Dear Son in my life certainly opened my eyes up to the challenges and issues that face the disabled, all through the eyes of a once little boy. I was humbled by the enormity of it all. I am still amazed and impressed by the actions of those who don’t have anyone disabled in their immediate family and yet, are so caring and so aware of the challenges special needs children face. No child deserves a life of disabilities but those children do deserve to live. A commenter on my blog once said to me, that she didn’t think I was the. “type of woman who would measure her life by what she has lost but by what you were given.” I am fortunate to have been given a Dear Son, who always makes me think. In addition to him, there are a few blogs that I find particularly noteworthy. These are the blogs that make me think, and also make me thankful that they blog, so that their voices can be heard.
So in keeping with tradition, I must nominate five blogs, that haven't been tagged. I'll nominate the following five blogs:
1. The Wheelie Catholic- The Wheelie Catholic is, "A blog about inclusion of Catholics with disabilities, providing information and resources, with humorous anecdotes written by a Catholic quadriplegic.”
If you haven’t had a chance to read it, you might want to check it out. Always first class, always top notch and it always makes you think. Recently she wrote a post titled, “The Spiritual Experience of Disability”. In that she writes,
“I've been asked many questions over the years about my disability. But I'm always surprised by how infrequently I'm asked this question even in religious settings: what is your spiritual experience of disability?The answer to this , of course, is different for everyone with a disability. In my case, the experience of living with a disability has deepened my faith as a cradle Catholic. I pray more, feel the presence of God more and have been led on a journey that I never anticipated…”
