I am in the middle of writing my talks for camp this summer. The theme is “Freedom”. I have had so much freedom this past year to show who I am. It has changed me. It has made me realize how fortunate I am. I know that not all people with disabilities are given the same opportunities that I have been. I see how much hope I have because I have been given a life that is worth living.
I am using some of my songs in my talks. I also have a couple of DVD’s that I am inspired by. The song that Susan Boyle sings on her CD, titled I am Who I Was Born to Be, is one of my new favorites. My Mom loves that song too and usually cries when she hears it.
Most people wouldn’t choose a life that looks like it has so many limitations to others. However, I am content most of the time because I know that while I can’t share all of my experiences with others, I have a blessed life. I have an open heart and I love very well. I pray often. I have positive thoughts. I hear songs that I will compose. I think kindly of the people who provide care for my needs. I know that many girls with Rett are like me. They are the people who go unnoticed and have so much to offer. They see things that go past many people.
Thanks for reading my blog. I miss having people leave comments. I hope you leave one today.
