This wall is inspiring to me. I know my iphone picture doesn't really give a sense of what this amazing wall is like. Back when the building was in the planning stages, an invitation was sent out inviting grads to share a special rock. These rocks were then assembled on this wall in braille and are two Helen Keller quotes! Alone we can do so little - together we can do so much. The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched they must be felt with the heart.
We were able to attend a graduation which also was the ribbon cutting of this beautiful new Student Residence. We sat towards the back so we could catch our shuttle to the airport.
It happened that a friend I have known for years was graduating this day with his first guide! Very cool and congratulations to Bryan and his guide Tommy. I wish them many wonderful years together.
I wish everyone could attend a Guide Dogs for the Blind Graduation.
Be Inspired. Feel Love. Sense incredible Commitment. Witness amazing volunteerism and service. See deep Gratitude.
Before it started, Steve texted me and said It's okay to cry! And I did :). Tears of gratitude for these amazing instructors, puppy raisers, volunteers, and everyone that it takes to create this new team. As one student stated ... It takes a village. Excitement for these graduates and their future.
While I was away, an opening came available for Steve to have his knee surgery. Thank you to our amazing kids who took such great care of him. He is healing and hopefully will be back doing the things he/we love in 6 weeks.
