Finding a voice....again.

I had always known my vision. Unlike many students, I foreknew my goals. To be a part of communication. To open up a new world for those who did not have a voice. What a land it was. Being an integral part of a child's life and to see them develop their words, their speech, and watch as they bloomed into a communicative soul was the greatest honor.

Having to be in a different world for the past two years due to unforeseen challenges has left me feeling pointless. Without purpose. I have missed and longed for that joy I once knew. As I climb back from the pit, I am left to wonder, for the first time, where will I emerge? Is it to again work with voiceless children? I have also - I was going to say 'felt', but it is stronger than that- experienced an urge to be a part of something new. Sometimes new can be a strong, life-giving force. New an breathe life into a weary spirit. Maybe make a way for voiceless women here in this venue.

So, I am keeping my arms open to receive that which Life has to give so as not to miss something amazing. Maybe something life-altering. Maybe my paradigm will change.

For now I remain, with Peace and Hope-

Michelle
