Deaf Awareness Week is upon us here in the UK! :D These pictures highlight the importance of lip-reading for Deaf and hard of hearing people all over the world…

We hate it when people mumble

we hate it when people cover their mouths

we hate it when people shout thinking we’ll hear better

we hate it when more than one person speak to us at the same time

we hate it when people do speak clearly….

BUT we do love it when people make the effort to talk clearly to us :)

Happy Deaf Awareness week!!

xx

These are amazing.

Wow Cant believe my blog post have be liked/reblogged this many times….. Feeling amazed :D

The growth process involves change, so it’s okay to change your mind as you grow.

I will not hate you, reject you, or run away from you if you change your mind about something, for I am growing, too.

If you do something and later realize/decide that you would not do it if you could go back in time, that’s okay, too. As we learn and grow even our actions will change.

There is great strength in saying, “That was who I used to be. I am different now.”

There are times to stick with what we know is true, and there are times when we must let go of our pride so truth can infiltrate our lives.

Every day we learn and grow.

Keep seeking truth and love, friends. After journeying far and wide, it will be found by us.

DONT LEAVE ANYTHING THAT IS ALIVE IN A CAR

First time in a long time in a while getting sleep in. It was glorious. And I got to see a good friend and sister this morning! Icing on the cake, really. And God has been so loving and gracious with all he’s done, so today, like every day, it is a good day indeed.

STILL MY FAVORITE THING ON THE INTERNET.

I’m really not one to talk about my grades, so hopefully this says a lot about the magnitude of this accomplishment for me: I got straight A’s in my nursing classes this summer semester! Two A’s, two A-’s (which in my book is straight A’s).

To help you understand my giddy jumping and clapping at this event, let me say this: the only time I have EVER received straight A’s was one quarter in 5th grade. Not before (that I know of), and never since then… until today!

God is so good, so gracious, and so kind. Even small things like this, that seem so minute and unimportant in the grand scheme of things… God cares about those parts of our lives, too. He loves us and he does not resent -  he doesn’t even hesitate - to give us good gifts. He does not patronize us when we ask things for ourselves, especially when those things are good for us. I love him. He loves me. So good.
