“Oh, I never DREAMED it!” – Morgan Vice quoting Cinderella
We all know it’s “more blessed to give than to receive.” Those of us who are “doers” have no problem jumping in and giving what’s needed, or surprising someone we care about with that special something. But sometimes we have trouble knowing how to gracefully receive help when we need it, or how to enjoy a gift when it’s offered. There’s a real joy that comes from knowing we’ve given just what was needed at the right time. Life is a balance. When we don’t allow others to give back, we rob them of that joy.
People need to be needed. Everyone has something to offer. My daughter Morgan knows how to receive a gift with sheer delight. 😉 I also see her joy and sense of accomplishment when she knows she’s helping out and doing a good job. She has a disability. That doesn’t mean she’s unable, just differently able. I am learning that allowing her to give back and do her part at home and in the community is actually a gift to her.
Here’s a picture of Morgan being given an opportunity to work through her school’s job coaching program. We appreciate employers who understand the benefits they receive when hiring individuals with disabilities. It’s a win-win situation!
Until Next Time,
Know The Hope!
