I have been writing today for an event that is coming up on May 22nd. I have been asked to be the speaker for an annual meeting for ARC. I am excited about it. My message is short, but I hope that it helps people see people who live with visible disabilities in a new way. I feel so honored to be asked. It is inspiring to me to know I can help others.
I am finishing my talk with this poem that I wrote.
I Am the Flower
I am the flower coming into bloom
I am a tree,
Planted on a hill
I stand in spite of storms
Strong and free.
I am a fire
Warming the hearts and souls of many,
I give comfort in a world of cold stares.
I have been very tired this week because I had a bunch of seizures to recover from, but I feel great today.
Here is a picture my Mom took of my horse and his favorite kitty, Scarlett. She rides him in the mornings. They love each other. It’s fun to watch her play with him.
