Mornings will be happily caffeinated in your memory
But incredibly strange without you in your favorite attire and seat
There will be cups of tea in the evenings with you in mind
Each perfected dish served comes from your teachings
With you in mind
Your legacy thrives on through everyone who was fortunate to be around you
Your grandchildren will carry your memories in their hearts
Your daughters and sons will forever cherish the memories
Your siblings will always carry your spirit throughout everything they do
Your voice is…
Stories with mother about coffee
March 18, 2021
As I sit here and go through the nostalgic memories about my wonderful mother and delicious coffee, I’d like to share a story about coffee in the backpack on the school bus.
Once upon a time when I was around seven years old and was scrambling to get ready for school one morning, was running late, I still wanted coffee. There was no way that I would get to have coffee and the bus was coming down the road and parked near the house.
I stuffed my school stuff in…

Many people are under the impression that a training center for the blind is the safest place for a loved one experiencing blindness and nothing could go wrong. I’m also exposing the NFB for what was done to me because of my additional disabilities outside of blindness. I hope this story encourages you to never place your trust in anything that seems too good to be true.
Perhaps investigating and asking questions to current students before attending any center would save you from trauma and endless anger.
I am now a 31yr old deaf-blind woman from Boston…

For the first time I’ve had a chance to vote early amid the Coronavirus and everything else happening. While doing so, I have faced some challenges along the way, and I will try to go into enough detail as possible with my experience.
While this year hasn’t been anyone’s favorite or at least most of everyone’s least favorite, I can say there have been a lot of truths exposed about people and so forth. …
Stories about the music you love
Music for many is and can be a source of nostalgia and most certainly a trigger for certain feelings and emotions. Music is a form of medicine for everyone who runs to this outlet. When all else fails with people interactions, we sometimes run to music. These are many of the reasons why I would consider getting a cochlear implant once I’m ready. The topic loomed over me each time I visit with an audiologist for nearly a year. My hearing has finally scratched that level of deterioration where it is…
Sleep has always been a questionable experience for me since as early as I can remember.
Everyone talked about sleeping so well and comfortably every single night. I would be on the other hand with a totally different story to tell. Sporadic nights of choppy sleeping hours. One little movement or restroom urge can have me awake for the remainder of the night. This is when I hope for at least seven hours of solid sleep.
Some say that some folks born with visual impairments tend to be less fortunate with sleep and will always be that way…

Down to her last few days before turning 32 years old, Dee was still in shock that she had even made it this far in life. Dee had overcome so many situations that made her question whether or not if she would live to see another year. So many dreadful accidents and a mother who prayed over her safety every time she left home. Not only did her mother pray for her to be safe, she also had a friend who prayed for her well-being and so forth.
Sitting outside on…

Who doesn’t enjoy a few great glamourous selfies when they come out of Victoria’s Secret with a custom-made brazier after a long time of waiting?
After a quick visit with a local in the area to pick up some wines and other goodies, Lucie decided to get extra comfy after discovering her package had arrived. Prior to the pandemic, Lucie spent a vast amount of time getting custom-fitted for a few bras at Victoria’s. …

There are going to be challenges for the DeafBlind when it comes to touching objects and people during this pandemic which will feed into additional isolation. Most DeafBlind people experience variations of deafness and blindness. For those who rely completely on touch of persons or things, it would be highly recommended that they keep their hands cleaned and protected at all times as well as their faces. If that is not possible, they would have to avoid people at all costs. When it comes to handling objects; it’s going to be another process of making…
What Happens When She Leaves Her Home
For the longest time, I was away from home out of state attending a training center for the blind. I needed these skills very badly even though it seemed like all was well. Nothing was okay in terms of my skills with blindness at the time.
I left my apartment to some very close people in my life and allowed them to check in on things while I was gone. Ten months was the longest amount of time I had ever spent away from Massachusetts. Honestly, I was not bothered…
