    Keep Right


    Seems like we are always blaming our overwhelming busyness on something: the holidays, snow days and illness, spring and graduation, and so on. Yesterday I added a " quick trip" to a huge mall about 45 minutes from home because there is an Apple store there. Apparently one wheelchair footplate smashed into the backpack on the back of the other chair, crushing the iPad screen. We have an upcoming road trip and I determined I am NOT making the trip without both twins having their iPads for entertainment....and headphones. So I added the trip to my to do list. We're down a vehicle with one getting inspected, so I took my daughter's car. On the way there I realized I wasn't familiar with driving it and spent a lot of time in the right lane while others sped past...I felt like I was going faster than I was, but others cruising by encouraged me to try to get a move on! On the way back I hit Philadelphia/turnpike rush hour traffic. It became a game of "guess which lane is going to move faster" as I wanted to get home to make dInner. By the time I reached my exit, it became clear to me that, while we had times where I may have been ahead or fallen behind my land marked vehicles I was using to gauge my progress, we had all pretty much reached our destination together. I should have chilled out and not judged my progress with the others...I could have enjoyed the radio, the scenery, and spent time praying!

    That night I found this Facebook Post by my friend, Amy. She summed it up so well!



    "Doug has often likened our life with Brooke to traveling in the right lane. Most of our friends live their life in the left lane. I am almost always ok with this. However, there are certain days where I need a little more patience, a little more grace and today seems to be one of those days. We went grocery shopping and honest to goodness, at times I felt like we were moving backwards!! But, even today, I can still say, Life is good!! Slow, but good!!!"

    White rice to black coffee

    We were were recently asked to speak of our journey as a family at an evening supporting Joni and Friends, Greater Philadelphia. Here are our notes describing (pretty much) what we shared:


    (Husband)
    Good evening....with introductions.

    (Myself)
    This past March we enjoyed a business trip meeting in Puerto Rico.
    Fifteen years ago we were at the same resort, different business trip and different company, and while I left the resort this time with a cup of Starbucks in hand, I left that time with a bowl of plain rice to go because I couldn't keep anything else down.   I was pregnant with twins and planning to tell the world when we got back.
    As I ate that bowl of rice fifteen years ago I had NO IDEA of the ride we were in for...that these two babies would arrive ten weeks premature, develop cerebral palsy as a result, and our lives would never be the same. It's probably best we can't see into our future. That's not to say the journey has ended. Nope, we are still learning to maneuver the twists and turns of life with disabilities, to grieve when we recognize the loss of what typical expectations and transitions we had, and to celebrate the gift of life. Our time back at the El Conquistador resort caused me to be very introspective.

    (Hubby)
    When we look back over the past years we have a few reoccurring themes to share...
    First, this life was too much for us. It absolutely is. It's a God sized job requiring the family of believers to participate.  Trying to handle it on our own led us to ache with feelings  of fatigue and isolation. We had to get used to living transparently, humbled and without secret. We needed to allow anyone and every one in, regardless of the "mess" (physical, emotional, spiritual, material...oh yeah, there's a lot of mess). Funny thing is, about thirteen years ago, in the midst of feeling alone and asking  God to send us relief and wisdom, Jerry and Joan Borton were in the midst of opening their office in Souderton. Our first encounter with them was at a family retreat held at spruce lake camp. Coincidentally, that summer spruce lake camp had no openings for us for a family getaway weekend on our own at their lodge, but they did tell us to contact Joni and Friends  to see if they could meet our needs through their family retreat program.

    (Me)
    Our first week at family retreat was memorable with a visit from Joni herself....and a lot of crying from the twins at being left in nursery care. Our older two daughters enjoyed every minute of it as they ran around enjoying camp activities, free from concern for their parents and baby sisters. That alone made it worthwhile. Truth be told, there was plenty of crying from me as well, as I found myself surrounded with others at different places along their own journey of disability and felt myself being ministered to in a unique way. We went back almost every year since then, even spending one week at a family retreat in California. All four daughters have grown in faith, friendships, and worth as a result of these special times.

    (Hubby )
    Well....they went back almost every year since then. Truth is, after that first year I wasn't thinking it was for me and that I was better off using that free time to do some projects back home. After years of camp, the girls all had a special place in their heart for the ministry of Joni and Friends and I began to feel challenged to invest in what my family found to be a time so healing. Once I committed to attending the full week five years ago I began to appreciate the times of teaching sessions for us as a couple, sharing confidences as men, and relaxing as a family.
    Turns out, camp was, and is, for ME...A man, husband, father affected by disability.
    We need others to keep us strong. In Ecclesiastes 4, new living translation, it reads:

    9 Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 11 Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 12 A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.

    We need  strands to weave in with, lots of them. Not just during a week of the summer, but all year long.  it's hard to do that, it makes you vulnerable. When living with disability it seems you are going to do all the taking and never the giving. But that's not how God has worked. God has a much bigger plan than here and now....and a huge part of that requires us to weave in with others. For that reason, I am grateful to my friend for giving leadership to our JAF men's support group which meets the first Monday of each month at my home church, Immanuel church of the Nazarene. And while we do sit around and talk about our feelings some, we really look forward to shooting a game of pool, watching the three stooges, watching a movie at a local theater, eating wings and especially our night out at the Iron pigs game.

    (Me, again.)

    It's no secret that women tend to enjoy getting together to talk and share feelings more than the men. From very early on in our journey I was privileged to meet spontaneously with a few local moms who were also navigating the world of disability. At some point I asked Joan if we could meet more officially under the lead of Joni and Friends. I volunteered to host the group if she could lead it. She agreed and years later we have outgrown our dining room table! Candy has been faithfully leading us in a time of devotion or study after our gathering begins with coffee and snacks. There is NEVER

    Limited-time offer: Get Kindle from $69 $49 or Kindle Paperwhite with Wi-Fi from $119 $99. Limit 1 per customer.

    Gas points I grabbed this week at Giant


    So, we are trying "the Daniel Plan" with a small group from church, which means I swallowed hard and passed by pop tarts as part of my gas points deal this week. Ha.

    BUT, there are only about 6 weeks until a graduation party, so I decided no time like the present to stock up on drinks!

    You need to buy 8 items for $.50 off a gallon...which is a return of $15.00 if you are filling 30 gallons.


    I stocked up on some tradewinds tea (I figure I can enjoy some of the unsweetened variety myself) and veggie  chips:
    8 x $2 = $16 , $1 out of pocket after gas fill up.


    I also did a few more packs of the lemon flavored water for the picnic.
    8 x $1.50. = $12.00,  $15.00 towards gas, so a money maker at fill up.


    Sun time, fun time!

    Before long we will be working hard to prevent sunburn, especially for the kiddos. (That's not a complaint!) zulilly has some great summer protections deals ...find them Here:   http://www.zulily.com/invite/specialsavingsspecialneeds

    Art contest for PA individuals with disabilities

    First-Lady-left-rgb

     

    News for Immediate Release

     

    April 1, 2014

     

    First Lady Susan Corbett Announces New Statewide Art Contest for Individuals with Disabilities in Partnership with The Arc of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts

     

    Harrisburg – First Lady Susan Corbett today announced a new art contest − a partnership between The Arc of Pennsylvania, the commonwealth and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts − that will showcase artwork from Pennsylvanians with disabilities.

     

    “Art is a language that transcends ability,” Mrs. Corbett said.  “Pennsylvanians with disabilities have a lot to overcome, but it is their abilities and talents that we often overlook. That’s why I am proud to announce a new partnership between The Arc of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and the commonwealth to launch a statewide art contest entitled ‘Art: The Universal Language’.”

     

    The contest is open to any Pennsylvanian of any age with a disability.

     

    Categories for submissions will include: Pen/Pencil, Watercolor, Acrylic, Oil, Sculpture, Jewelry, Photography, Textile, and Mixed Media/Other.

     

    A first, second and third prize will be awarded in the following age divisions: 12 and under; 13 to 17; and 18 and older. The governor and first lady will participate in judging the best of show category.

     

    “We are thrilled to be working with the governor and the first lady to showcase the artistic talents of our members,” said The Arc of Pennsylvania’s board president, Jeanne Downey. “Governor Corbett has shown that he recognizes the contributions people with disabilities make in Pennsylvania, and we are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate this through this art contest.”

     

    Entries will be accepted Tuesday, April 15, 2014 through Monday, Aug. 25, 2014.

    Winners will be announced in October 2014, and several of the winning pieces will go on display in Harrisburg for public viewing.

     

    “Art is truly a universal language. Some people with significant disabilities do not use words to communicate, but their passions and feelings are expressed in beautiful works of art,” said Maureen Cronin, executive director of The Arc of Pennsylvania. “I am thankful that Governor Corbett and Mrs. Corbett value the perspective and talents of these artists, and I look forward to recognizing these individuals in October.”  

     

    For official contest guidelines and the required entry form, visit The Arc of Pennsylvania’s website at www.thearcpa.org or email questions to:artcontest@pa.gov.
