It’s the feeling I got when their eyes lit up as they punched their own names out in “braille.” It’s the feeling I got when my daughter, completely on her own, decided to spell the name “Helen” too- what a sweet way to remember that great hero! And it’s the feeling I enjoyed when my daughter showed me some sign language and said “You and I are this…best friends.”
I hope my children and I remember that there are NO LIMITS beyond OUR OWN MIND. With a good teacher, friend, and faith we can do ANYTHING and become our BEST selves. I saw that in the many fascinating accomplishments of my own “handicapped” father. I’ve learned of it from the amazing life of Helen Keller. And I see it every day through the milestones of my own busy special needs children. “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” Anyone enjoying their young children is definitely in the middle of a daring adventure. So don’t just see it or touch it, FEEL these moments with your heart.
