I'll be posting the resulting project toward the end of the month after it is presented at a national conference, but for today, I'm wallowing in Memory Lane.
My dining table is covered in boxes and envelopes of photographs and negatives, all in my search for pictures showing 4 of 8 through the years, from her babyhood through receiving her first sets of hearing aids to pictures of her and her amazing Auditory Verbal Therapist, Wendy.
I just love 'em.
But mostly, I find myself feeling so fortunate that 4 and 7 of 8 have been so blessed with the opportunity to work on a consistent basis with people of the caliber of Wendy and Laurie and Melissa. People who have dedicated their lives to patient coaching and improvement and equipping. People who have become beloved members of our family, people who love my kids and teach me and encourage us all.
The silver lining of walking in challenge.
We love you, Wendy. Thank you for teaching us all how to listen, to hear the bigger lessons of persistence, courage and effort.
We are blessed to have you in our lives.
