A wise man once said of Eleanor Roosevelt, "She would rather light candles than curse the darkness, and her glow has warmed the world." In his farewell address to the First Lady, Adlai Stevenson touched on her can-do attitude and ability to accomplish the unthinkable, in the face of remarkable odds. She has long been one of my heroines. Those inspiring words have been in the forefront of my mind this week, reminding me that one person, one smile, one spark, can truly make a difference in the lives of others.
When one heart touches another, something magical happens. Both souls are forever changed. Our work here is all about connection- helping our clients and staff connect with one another, and the community at large. We create enriching, meaningful activities that help people with disabilities gain independent living skills, form healthy friendships, and achieve their goals. Never a dull moment! This job challenges, delights and inspires me like no other.
What sparks your curiosity? What makes your heart dance? What makes you grin until your cheeks hurt? Find your spark, and follow where it leads. Your heart will never steer you wrong.
Brightening Your Darkest Days...
