I was reading Womens Day magazine the other day. The last page always has quotes, I found a couple that I really liked and thought I would share them.
"The future depends on what we do in the present." -Mahatma Gandhi
This quote made me think of the future of children with disabilities, Down syndrome in particular. I think of how far society in general has come in acceptance to our children, and yet how far there still is to go. We as parents and loved ones of children with disabilities really need to fight hard for our kids, and really push to educate people about them. I would hope that one day people (strangers) would look at Ella and just see Ella and not a girl with Down syndrome. I know it's a dream, but how great would that be???
"Many persons have the wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose." - Helen Keller
I also liked this one. It's so true!
And the last one for today...
"...We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today."
- Dale Carnegie
