Wow what can I say?
I was done for the day with my blog.
Then I was asked to do something amazing.
My friend is a very talented photographer, unlike me. She and another three businesses are fundraising for a family and their little girl with profound disabilities and a dazzling smile.
I have tagged and shared where I could and will participate in the clothes swap and donate some wine for gifts and auction.
Tonight however I was asked to "PIMP THE CUBBY".
Apparently that is my skill, my forte, only I can girly it up on a budget, which is great in keeping with my most recent post Thrifty not shifty.
To be asked by friends to help them is a privilege and gives you a great feeling.
To be asked by friends to help complete strangers, well that is an honour that words fail to describe.
I hope to do this little girl, her baby sister and mother and father proud.
Girly stuff is easy and I have everything I need to hopefully make this little Cubby a home for these two little cherubs.
It is a 24/7 workload that is unrelenting and unforgiving to parents of disabled children. It does however come with its own joys and triumphs that parents of non-disabled children won't experience in the same way.
As many of you know I work amongst many disabled clientele and I love my work. To be able to "play" amongst this family with a child with a disability and hopefully create them something delightful well that will be a joy. The last time I did something voluntarily for a family with a disabled child was back when I was studying and a severely disabled 8yo girl, her mum and grandmother were trialling a patterning program and needed volunteers.
While I have just collected a series of things for our cubby house and when I put it together it will look great, I am delighted that I will get to put my creative genius to further use.
I am so grateful to be asked and hope I do them all proud.
