The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart. – Helen Keller
Helen Keller was an amazing and beautiful woman. She was good friends with both Mark Twain and Alexander Graham Bell. Ms. Keller, a Socialist, traveled the world to advocate for the education of the deaf, blind, and disabled. She was the first deaf and blind person to graduate from college (Radcliffe).
One of her lesser known accomplishments, but one that is dear to my heart, is the introduction of the Akita breed of dog to the US. Our Akita, Tobi, who was with us for 15 years, liked to “sing” the Star Spangled Banner with my husband. Tobi brought a lot of joy into our lives and is dearly missed. Thank you, Ms. Keller, for making it possible to have our beloved Tobi as part of the family.
I am hoping your heart feels the best and most beautiful things in the world this holiday season.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. – Ephesians 2:10
