be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea,
You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So...get on your way!
-- Dr. Seuss
On a recent Good News update, we shared that one of our cooperative members (Peter) and a girl in our program (Susan) are starting a yearlong daily program at a skills school.
This past week, they started the program, and after the first day came home with smiles on their faces. Peter made a stool, and Susan began learning how to cut patterns.
I asked Theresa how they were getting to the school. She shared that they found someone generous enough to take them in a taxi so there was no need to arrange a minibus each day.
The taxi picks them up at the bottom of the hill in Kantolomba in the morning and returns them there in the evening. I asked how Susan would travel up and down the hill, as she is in a wheelchair and the roads are quite rocky. Theresa said that everyone in the cooperative is coming on board and each day will be there to help Susan up and down the hill.
Wow. The places she’ll go, and she is on her way!
Deep Gassho to this amazing cooperative for showing up to support each other in so many ways.
