WOYWW, Go Forward with Purpose
I was recently contacted and asked if I would do a special card for a young lady who is graduating this year. She is a sweet young woman, who has been in a wheelchair for most of her life due to having been born with Spina Bifida. She's also LDS like I am and so her Gran wanted it to have a touch of her own faith in it as well. I was honored to have been asked, and is what I came up with. Instead of having her seated in her wheelchair I wanted to show her seated upon the seat of learning. Too often people are labeled by the tools of their disability . . . and when you see a person in a wheelchair, or with a cane, or braces . . . that is too often all that you see, and what they are identified with . . . but . . . they are so very much more than that wheelchair, or cane . . .
I chose a quote from the late President of our church, Gordon B Hinckley. He had a great heart for the youth of our church and I believe they held a great fondness for him in their hearts as well.
That is what is on my work desk this week. Making cards today. Hop on over to Julia's page to see what's on some other work desks. You will be surprised and utterly amazed! Trust me on this!
