Dear Gypsy Jo:
Sometimes it is called Myopia… or tunnel vision….. sometimes people say we can’t see the forest for all the trees….. sometimes we get set in our ways or so focused we lose all perspective and miss the other opportunities that may be evident to someone not so close to the situation… sometime… we just need to look at life from a different perspective and know there are always people who will support you in your life no matter which way you chose to go.
Wouldn’t it be great if we can say this about ourselves ALL the time instead of some or most of the time… I know I would like to say this about myself all the time.. but realistically I fall and stumble and skin my knee many a time.
but at least I try…..
be happy, be strong, be all you can be for you and you alone.. for it is inside your self that you will value the wins and loses more than any one else. You are the person that matters and you have the power and abilities do learn and grow and be so much in your life… gee I am ALMOST jealous.. nahh….lol .. well maybe a tinge…lol to be you.. with no fixed obligations.. with your abilities and your personality and yea I will give you extra points for appearance…lol.. but damn Jo… what you can do is beyond anything most can achieve.
be well Joey…
Today is Spring Fling for Disabled where I live from noon to 3… and next weekend it is our Walk for Autism. and also Special Needs Prom… for which I am SHOCKED beyond belief what T has chosen to wear.. a real dress to her knees and sandals… and even jewelry… I asked her who she was and what she did with my daughter… she just giggled and said maybe she just wants to try something new… it did not matter the price.. it maters her desire to grow and experience new things… like I hope you will always do in your life as I also want to continue doing it in mine
