Making The Best Of Our Situation
Author: Barbara Goodhew


When blind you can't see beauty.
When deaf you can't hear beauty.

When blind we have to use our ears to see beauty.
When deaf we have to use our eyes to see beauty.

If blind and deaf we have to use our mind to see

So true

I have seen beautiful sights.
I have heard beautiful sounds,
but your beautiful message helps me to KNOW true beauty in a special way.

The Blind and Deaf see and hear more clearly ..

in my life i had two powerful friends that taught me with wisdom, with you now i'm at three..beautiful message doll, you portray in all your insightful writes, in college i had a professor whom was deaf, he taught ASL i learned to hear things that the average person with good hearin' was not aware of,and i had a Blind Native American friend whom taught me how to see the beauty of things so unknown to those with sight,we allow obstacles to hinder what we se and hear... both taught me with their HEART. thank you doll you too are one so blessed to share from your HEART..
