Beautitudes for People with Disabilities

Recommended Posts

Blessed are those who take time to listen to the defective speech, for you help us to know that if we persevere we can be understood

Blessed are those who walk with us in public places and ignore the stares of strangers for in your companionship we find havens of relaxation

Blessed are those who never bid us ‘hurry up’ and more blessed are you that do not snatch out tasks from our hands to do them for us, for often we need time rather than help

Blessed are those that ask for our help, for our greatest need is to be needed

Blessed are those who stand beside us as we enter new ventures, for our failures will be outweighed by the times we surprise you and ourselves

Blessed are those when by all these things you assure us that the thing that makes us individuals is not our peculiar muscles, nor our wounded nervous systems, but it is the God-given self that no infirmity can confine

Blessed are those who realise that we are human and don’t expect us to be saintly just because we have a disability

Blessed are those that pick things up without being asked

Blessed are those who understand that sometimes we are weak and not just lazy

Blessed are those who forget the disability of our bodies and see the shape of our souls

Blessed are those who see us as a whole person, unique and complete and not as one of God’s mistakes

Blessed are those who love us just as we are without wondering what we would have been like

Blessed are our friends upon whom we depend, for they are the substance and joy of our lives

My wife says I was one of God's mistakes BEFORE I lost the leg.

Lawdy lawd Eddie, I am like a squirrel when it comes to collecting the up-beat philosophical stuff that makes you think, and smile. I pull them all out when I have a bad leg day, or a sense of humour collapse....

This particular one has been doing the rounds on amp/disabled sites for years. It just touched something in me and I've kept it around for ages.

So glad you guys enjoyed it!

Ally

:D
