Nothing inspires me more than my work as a speech pathologist, especially hearing a child's first words and knowing that I've helped give him or her the gift of language.  In my office is a quote from Katherine Graham:  To do what you love and to think that it matters, how can anything be more fun.  That sums it up.  Maybe someday one of those children I worked with will do something to change the world for the better and I will have had a small part in that.

Thank you for this post Thelma - how poignant, for those of us who are writers, to think back on a time when, for some children, language is such a struggle.

"I'm really pleased you like my post, Sherry Joyce. What a great metaphor: "being a fish flapping on the table outside of the bowl." I know that feeling! Congratulations on the publication of your novel! That's terrific!"
