This was shared with me a few years back, and I’d thought I’d pass it on to you guys:


Beattitudes For The Handicapped 
~ Blessed are those who take time to listen to the defective speech, for you help us to know that if we persevere we can be understood.
~ Blessed are those who walk with us in public places and ignore the stares of strangers for in your companionship we find havens of relaxation.
~ Blessed are those who never bid us “hurry up” and more blessed are you that do not snatch out tasks from our hands to do them for us, for often we need time rather than help.
~ Blessed are those who stand beside us as we enter new ventures, for our failures will be Outweighed by the times we surprise ourselves and you.
~ Blessed are those that ask for our help, for our greatest need is to be needed.
~ Blessed are those when by all these things you assure us that the thing that makes us individuals is not out peculiar muscles, nor our wounded nervous systems, but it is the God-given self that no infirmity can confine.
~ Blessed are those who realize that we are human and don’t expect us to be saintly just because we have a disability.
~ Blessed are those that pick things up without being asked.
~ Blessed are those who understand that sometimes I am weak and not just lazy.
~ Blessed are those who forget the disability of my body and see the shape of my soul.
~ Blessed are those who see me as a whole person, unique and complete and not as one of God’s mistakes.
~ Blessed are those who love me just as I am without wondering what I would ve been like.
~ Blessed are my friends upon whom I depend, for they are the substance and joy of my life!
