I don’t fit and it has nothing to do with the fact that I have Cerebral Palsy– that’s what I learned today 🙂
It’s 4 : 04 PM on day 838 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a baked bean sandwich for breakfast, go to the mall, prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature, practice typing with both hands and make sandwiches as part of Virginia’s Sandwich Run.
Today my sister invited me to go to the mall with her and her friends I thought what the heck Kevin (my brother) is going to be annoying for a while after he comes from his sleepover and went along we spent two hours going from shop to shop not buying much the whole time I was there I felt the hours ticking off my life and thought I could be helping so many people right now I’ve always felt different and I’ve always thought it was because I had Cerebral Palsy but after today I realize I am different in that I am not into clothes and make-up like other girls are I would rather be all messy making sandwiches for hungry kids I believe that every waking moment of my life should be spent serving others or improving myself. Do you blame everything on a specific challenge that you have?
