I came from a family that was uncomfortable with differences. I was made to feel inferior by all of them. My husband was the first person who showed me that it was OK to be me and that I was someone with value. He couldn’t see me and told me I was pretty. He was smart and did so many things on his own. I thought if he can, so can I.
I am the happy wife of Jerry who is blind and has Parkinson’s. He has taught me to be a strong confident woman. I look at the world with appreciation for the little things (like birds) and know how to live in the moment. My happiest moments are evenings reading or quilting beside Jerry.
